Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This monograph offers well-founded training and expertise on the statistical analysis of data from clinical vaccine trials, i.e., immunogenicity and vaccine field efficacy studies. The book's scope is practical rather thantheoretical. It opens with t wo introductory chapters on the immunology of vaccines to provide readers with the necessary background knowledge. It then continues with an in-depth exploration of the statistical methodology. Manyreal-life examples and SAS codes are presented, making ap plication of the methods straightforward. Topics discussed include maximum likelihood estimation for censored antibody titers, ANCOVA for antibody values, analysis of equivalenceand non-inferiority immunogenicity trial data, analysis of data from vaccine field efficacy trials (including data from studies with recurrent infection data), fitting protection curves to data of challenge or field efficacy studies,and the analysis of vaccine safety data

Note:Deeply rooted in fundamental research in Mathematics and Computer Science, Cellular Automata (CA) are recognized as an intuitive modeling paradigm for Complex Systems. Already very basic CA, with extremely simple micro dynamicssuch as the Game of Lif e, show an almost endless display of complex emergent behavior. Conversely, CA can also be designed to produce a desired emergent behavior, using either theoretical methodologies or evolutionary techniques.Meanwhile, beyond the original realm of applicati ons - Physics, Computer Science, and Mathematics CA have also become work horses in very different disciplines such as epidemiology, immunology, sociology, and finance. In thiscontext of fast and impressive progress, spurred further by the enormous attra ction these topics have on students, this book emerges as a welcome overview of the field for its practitioners, as well as a good starting point fordetailed study on the graduate and post-graduate level. The book contains three parts, two major parts on theory and applications, and a smaller part on software. The theory part contains fundamental chapters on how to design and/orapply CA for many different areas. In the applications part a number of representative examples of really using CA in a broad ran ge of disciplines is provided - this part will give the reader a good idea of the real strength of thiskind of modeling as well as the incentive to apply CA in their own field of study

Note:Widespread immunization has many different kinds of effects in individuals and populations, including in the unvaccinated individuals. The challenge is in understanding and estimating all of these effects. This book presents aunified conceptual frame work of the different effects of vaccination at the individual and at the population level. The book covers many different vaccine effects, including vaccine efficacy for susceptibility, for disease, forpost-infection outcomes, and for infectiousness. The book includes methods for evaluating indirect, total and overall effects of vaccination programs in populations. Topics include household studies, evaluating correlates of immuneprotection, and applications of casual inference. Material on concepts of in fectious disease epidemiology, transmission models, casual inference, and vaccines provides background for the reader. This is the first book to presentvaccine evaluation in this comprehensive conceptual framework. This book is intended for colleagues and students in statistics, biostatistics, epidemiology, and infectious diseases. Most essential concepts are described in simplelanguage accessible to epidemiologists, followed by technical material accessible to statisticians. M. Elizabeth Halloran and Ira Longini are professors of biostatistics at the University of Washington and the Fred Hutchinson CancerResearch Center in Seattle. Claudio Struchiner is professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at the Brazilian School of Public Health of the Oswaldo Cr uz Foundation in Rio de Janeiro. The authors are prominent researchers in the area.Halloran and Struchiner developed the study designs for dependent happenings to delineate indirect, total, and overall effects. Halloran has made contributions at the inter face of epidemiological methods, causal inference, andtransmission dynamics. Longini works in the area of stochastic processes applied to epidemiological infectious disease problems, specializing in the

Note:A major challenge in the modeling and simulation of tumor growth is the mathematical description of living matter, which is far more complex than a mathematical description of inert matter. One critical piece of this challenge iscreating multiscale m odels that take into account subcellular, cellular, and macroscopic levels of cancer. The complexity of these different levels requires the development of new mathematical methods and ideas, which are examined inthis work. Written by first-rate researcher s in the field of mathematical biology, this collection of selected chapters offers a comprehensive overview of state-of-the-art mathematical methods and tools for modeling and analyzingcancer phenomena. Topics covered include: * Genetic and epigenetic pa thways to colon cancer * A game theoretical perspective on the somatic evolution of cancer * Nonlinear modeling and simulation of tumor growth * Tumor cords and theirresponse to anticancer agents * Modeling diffusely invading brain tumors * Multiphase mod els of tumor growth * Mathematical modeling of breast carcinogenesis * Predictive models in tumor immunology * Multiscale modeling of solid tumorgrowth Selected Topics in Cancer Modeling is an excellent reference for researchers, practitioners, and gradua te students in applied mathematics, mathematical biology, and related fields. The book has an overall aim of quantitative,predictive mathematical modeling of solid tumor growth at all scales, from genetics all the way through to treatment therapy for pati ents

Title:Killer Cell Dynamics [electronic resource] : Mathematical and Computational Approaches to Immunology
Author(s): Dominik Wodarz
Date:2007
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book reviews how mathematics can be used in combination with biological data in order to improve understanding of how the immune system works. This is illustrated largely in the context of viral infections. Mathematicalmodels allow scientists to capture complex biological interactions in a clear mathematical language and to follow them to their precise logical conclusions. This can give rise to counter-intuitive insights which would not be attainedby experiments alone, and can be used for the de sign of further experiments in order to address the mathematical results. This book provides both an introduction to the field of mathematical immunology, and an overview of many topicswhich are the subject of current research, covering a broad variety of immunological topics. It starts with basic principles of immunology and covers the dynamical interactions between the immune system and specific viral infections,including important human pathogens such as HIV. General biological and mathematical backgro und material to both virus infection and immune system dynamics is provided, and each chapter begins with a simple introduction to thebiological questions examined. This book is intended for an interdisciplinary audience. It explains the concept of mathem atical modeling in immunology and shows how modeling has been used to address specific questions. It is intendedboth for the mathematical biologists who are interested in immunology, and for the biological readership that is interested in the use of mathe matical models in immunology. Dominik Wodarz is an Associate Professor at the Department ofEcology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of California, Irvine

Chapter 2 describes how tumor secretesgrowth factors to form new blood vessels in its vicinity, which provide it with nutrients it needs in order to grow. Chapter 3 explores the process that enables the tumor to invade the neighboring tissue. Chapter 4 models theinteraction between a tumor and the immune system. Chapte r 5 is concerned with chemotherapy it uses concepts from control theory to minimize obstacles arising from drug resistance and from cell cycle dynamics. Finally, Chapter 6reviews mathematical results for various cancer models
