Abstract

The effects of a number of vaccination strategies on the spread of an SIR type disease are numerically investigated for several common network topologies including random, scale-free, small world, and meta-random networks. These strategies, namely, prioritized, random, follow links and ...read more

Influenza

Influenza, commonly known as the flu, is an infectious disease caused by an influenza virus.Symptoms can be mild to severe. The most common symptoms include: high fever, runny nose, sore throat, muscle pains, headache, coughing, sneezing, and feeling tired. Discover the latest research on influenza here.

Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (ASM)

Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is a viral respiratory disease of zoonotic origin caused by the SARS coronavirus (SARS-CoV). Initial symptoms are flu-like and may include fever, muscle pain, lethargy symptoms, cough, sore throat, and other nonspecific symptoms. SARS may eventually lead to shortness of breath and pneumonia; either direct viral pneumonia or secondary bacterial pneumonia. DIscover the latest research on SARS here.

Emerging Infectious Diseases (ASM)

Emerging Infectious Diseases are defined as those whose incidence in humans has increased in the past two decades or threaten to increase in the near future. Discover the latest research on Emerging Infectious Diseases.

Influenza Virus

Influenza viruses comprise a major class of human respiratory pathogens, responsible for causing morbidity and mortality worldwide. Discover the latest research on Influenza Viruses here.

Viral Respiratory Diseases

Viral respiratory infections can affect the upper or lower respiratory tract. These lung and airway infections can be caused by numerous different viruses and can be dangerous for those who have a weakened immune system. Discover the latest research on viral respiratory diseases here.

Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers

Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers caused by ebola, marburg and lassa viruses often manifest as multiple organ dysfunction and hemorrhagic shock with high mortality. Discover the latest research on Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers here.

Ebola Virus

Ebola Virus causes ebola virus disease, and is one of the deadliest pathogens known to man, with a mortality rate between 25-90% depending on the species and outbreak of ebola. Discover the latest research on Ebola Virus.

Emerging Infectious Diseases

Emerging Infectious Diseases are defined as those whose incidence in humans has increased in the past two decades or threaten to increase in the near future. Discover the latest research on Emerging Infectious Diseases.
