  1. The allee effect and elimination of neglected tropical diseases: a mathematical modelling study.

    Advances in Parasitology 87:1 (2015) PMID 25765192

    Elimination and control programmes for neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) are underway around the world, yet they are generally informed by epidemiological modelling only to a rudimentary degree. Chief among the modelling-derived predictors of disease emergence or controllability is the basic re...
  2. Mathematical models of human african trypanosomiasis epidemiology.

    Advances in Parasitology 87:53 (2015) PMID 25765194

    Human African trypanosomiasis (HAT), commonly called sleeping sickness, is caused by Trypanosoma spp. and transmitted by tsetse flies (Glossina spp.). HAT is usually fatal if untreated and transmission occurs in foci across sub-Saharan Africa. Mathematical modelling of HAT began in the 1980s wit...
  3. Mathematical Modelling of Leprosy and Its Control.

    Advances in Parasitology 87:33 (2015) PMID 25765193

    Leprosy or Hansen's disease is an infectious disease caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium leprae. The annual number of new leprosy cases registered worldwide has remained stable over the past years at over 200,000. Early case finding and multidrug therapy have not been able interrupt transmissi...
  4. Modelling the effects of mass drug administration on the molecular epidemiology of schistosomes.

    Advances in Parasitology 87:293 (2015) PMID 25765198

    As national governments scale up mass drug administration (MDA) programs aimed to combat neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), novel selection pressures on these parasites increase. To understand how parasite populations are affected by MDA and how to maximize the success of control programmes, it...
  5. Ecology, evolution and control of chagas disease: a century of neglected modelling and a promising future.

    Advances in Parasitology 87:135 (2015) PMID 25765195

    More than 100 years after its formal description, Chagas disease remains a major public health concern in Latin America with a yearly burden of 430,000 Disability-Adjusted Life Years (DALYs). The aetiological agent, a protozoan named Trypanosoma cruzi, is mainly transmitted to mammalian hosts by...
  6. Mathematical Models for Neglected Tropical Diseases: Essential Tools for Control and Elimination, Part A.

    Advances in Parasitology 87:xiii (2015) PMID 25924239

  7. Modelling lymphatic filariasis transmission and control: modelling frameworks, lessons learned and future directions.

    Advances in Parasitology 87:249 (2015) PMID 25765197

    Mathematical modelling provides a useful tool for policy making and planning in lymphatic filariasis control programmes, by providing trend forecasts based on sound scientific knowledge and principles. This is now especially true, in view of the ambitious target to eliminate lymphatic filariasis...

  9. A review of molecular approaches for investigating patterns of coevolution in marine host-parasite relationships.

    Advances in Parasitology 84:209 (2014) PMID 24480315

    Parasites and their relationships with hosts play a crucial role in the evolutionary pathways of every living organism. One method of investigating host-parasite systems is using a molecular approach. This is particularly important as analyses based solely on morphology or laboratory studies of ...
