 Effects of quarantine in six endemic models for infectious diseasesHerbert Hethcote
Department of Mathematics, University of Iowa, 14 MacLean Hall, Iowa City, IA 52242 1419, USA
Math Biosci 180:14160. 2002..The Hopf bifurcation surface and stable periodic solutions are found numerically...  A predatorprey model with infected preyHerbert W Hethcote
Department of Mathematics, University of Iowa, 14 MacLean Hall, Iowa City, IA 52242, USA
Theor Popul Biol 66:25968. 2004..Also the predation on the more vulnerable prey can cause the disease to die out, when it would remain endemic without the predators...  Species coexistence and periodicity in hosthostpathogen modelsHerbert W Hethcote
Department of Mathematics, University of Iowa, 14 MacLean Hall, Iowa City, 52242, USA
J Math Biol 51:62960. 2005..The results given here reinforce previous examples in which there are major differences in behavior between models using massaction and frequencydependent incidences...  Using computer simulations to compare pertussis vaccination strategies in AustraliaHerbert W Hethcote
Department of Mathematics, University of Iowa, 14 MacLean Hall, Iowa City, IA 52242, USA
Vaccine 22:218191. 2004....  Competing species models with an infectious diseaseRoberto A Saenz
Applied Mathematical and Computational Sciences, University of Iowa, 14 MacLean Hall, Iowa City, IA 52242
Math Biosci Eng 3:21935. 2006..Models of SIR and SIRS type are also considered. A key result in all of these models with the frequencydependent incidence is that the disease must either die out in both species or remain endemic in both species...  Adolescent and adult pertussis vaccination: computer simulations of five new strategiesAnnelies Van Rie
Department of Epidemiology, University of North Carolina, 2104F McGavran Greenberg Hall, Chapel Hill, NC 27599 7435, USA
Vaccine 22:315465. 2004....  Confined animal feeding operations as amplifiers of influenzaRoberto A Saenz
Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
Vector Borne Zoonotic Dis 6:33846. 2006..A human influenza epidemic due to a new virus could be locally amplified by the presence of confined animal feeding operations in the community. Thus vaccination of CAFO workers would be an effective use of a pandemic vaccine...
