- Teunis P, Moe C, Liu P, Miller S, Lindesmith L, Baric R, et al. Norwalk virus: how infectious is it?. J Med Virol. 2008;80:1468-76 pubmed publisher..Norwalk virus is a valuable model system to study virulence because genetic factors are known for both complete and partial protection; the latter can be quantitatively described as heterogeneity in dose response models. ..

J R Soc Interface. 2013;10:20120955 pubmed publisher..This illustrates that the proposed method can be used to accurately reconstruct transmission networks, enhancing our understanding of outbreak dynamics and possibly leading to new insights into how to prevent outbreaks. ..
- Teunis P, Koningstein M, Takumi K, van der Giessen J. Human beings are highly susceptible to low doses of Trichinella spp. Epidemiol Infect. 2012;140:210-8 pubmed publisher..Humans appear to be highly susceptible: exposure to low doses (few larvae) is associated with a considerable risk of infection. As a consequence, levels of Trichinella in meat must be low to maintain acceptable health risks...
