  1. Cluster analysis of the origins of the new influenza A(H1N1) virus.

    Audio, Transactions of the IRE Professional Gro... 14(21) (2009) PMID 19480812

    We have studied the genetics of the new strain and identified its closest relatives through a cluster analysis approach. We show that the new virus combines genetic information related to different swine influenza viruses. Segments PB2, PB1, PA, HA, NP and NS are related to swine H1N2 and H3N2 influ...
  2. The HIV epidemic: Colorado's traditional approach to disease control. FAU - Vernon, Thomas

    AIDS & Public Policy Journal 2(3):33 (1987) PMID 11650045

  3. Effectiveness of tuberculosis contact tracing among migrants and the foreign-born population.

    Euro surveillance : bulletin europeen sur les m... 14(11) (2009) PMID 19317977

    A literature review was performed to assess the effectiveness of tuberculosis (TB) contact tracing among migrants and the foreign-born population with emphasis on the European Union. Effectiveness of contact tracing was assessed using the following indicators: coverage, proportion of contacts with T...
  4. Modelling infection spread using location tracking

    International Journal of Healthcare Technology ... 11(6):442 (2010)

    We aim to show that by tracking the locations of individuals in a closed environment, it is now possible to record the nature and frequency of interactions between them. Further, that it is possible to use such data to predict the way in which an infection will spread throughout such a population, g...
  5. A European survey on public health policies for managing cases of meningococcal disease and their contacts.

    PMID 18445439

    In 2007, a European survey was conducted to compare national policies on public health management of cases of meningococcal disease and their contacts. The results revealed differences in definitions of close contacts and prophylactic regimens between countries. These differences can be attributed t...
  6. Tuberculosis in a child - search for the infected adult nearby; case report, Portugal, 2007.

    Euro surveillance : bulletin europeen sur les m... 14(36) (2009) PMID 19758540

    We report on a case of a four-year-old child who got infected through sporadic non-household exposure at a coffee shop. The source case was a woman who had suffered from weight loss, productive cough and fatigue for two months before being diagnosed with TB. Screening the child s contacts revealed t...
  7. AIDS-related stigma in sub-Saharan Africa: its contexts and potential intervention strategies.

    AIDS & Public Policy Journal 20(1-2):25 (2005) PMID 17260567

    The ways in which AIDS stigma is overtly or covertly expressed are shaped by a range of social, cultural, political, and economic factors. Stigma plays into existing social inequalities and is manifested at all levels: in the wider society, in institutions, in families, and at the individual level....
  8. Detecting and blocking P2P botnets through contact tracing chains

    International Journal of Internet Protocol Tech... 5(1-2):44 (2010)

    We propose a contact tracing chain-based framework to detect and block P2P botnets by tracing contact behaviours among peers. In the proposed framework, the contacts of peers with suspicious symptoms are traced and tracing chains are established to correlate contacts among peers with their abnormal...
  9. Hey doc, can you keep a secret? An Ohio physician's right to warn third parties that they may be at risk of contracting HIV. FAU - Wiseman, ...

    Journal of law and health 6(2):199 (1991) PMID 11656155

  10. Investigations and control measures following a non-travel-associated case of toxigenic Cornyebacterium diphtheriae, London, United Kingdom,...

    Euro surveillance : bulletin europeen sur les m... 15(16) (2010) PMID 20430002

    This article reports the investigation and control measures undertaken following the identification of a toxigenic strain of Cornyebacterium diphtheriae var gravis, designated ribotype Minsk , in a partially vaccinated teenager born in the United Kingdom with no recent history of travel or known con...
