    Damian Clancy
    Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, L69 7ZL, UK
    J Math Biol 67:963-87. 2013
    ..All of our results are derived under the assumption that the susceptible population is sufficiently large. ..
  2. doi request reprint The effect of waning immunity on long-term behaviour of stochastic models for the spread of infection
    Damian Clancy
    Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, UK
    J Math Biol 61:527-44. 2010
    ..Our main findings are that a shorter average immune period leads to higher infection prevalence in quasi-stationarity, and to longer persistence of infection in the population...
  3. ncbi request reprint Optimal intervention for an epidemic model under parameter uncertainty
    Damian Clancy
    Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, L69 7ZL, UK
    Math Biosci 205:297-314. 2007
    ..We consider policies allowing for (i) the isolation of any number of infectives, or (ii) the immunisation of all susceptibles (total immunisation). Numerical examples are given to illustrate our results...

    D Clancy
    Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Liverpool, L69 7ZL, UK
    Math Biosci 170:113-32. 2001
    ..The effect of both 'typical herd size' and 'the amount of permitted variation in herd size' upon disease prevalence in equilibrium are considered using both the exact equilibrium distribution of the process and our approximations...

    Department of Clinical Veterinary Science, University of Liverpool, Neston, South Wirral, UK
    Int J Parasitol 29:1691-704. 1999
    ..If the level of within-herd transmission was above a critical threshold, then a combination of reducing within-herd, and blocking external sources of transmission was required to permanently eliminate infection...
