Note:Hardly a day goes by without news headlines concerning infectious disease threats. Currently the spectre of a pandemic of influenza A|H1N1 is raising its head, and heated debates are taking place about the pros and cons ofvaccinating young girls agai nst human papilloma virus. For an evidence-based and responsible communication of infectious disease topics to avoid misunderstandings and overreaction of the public, we need solid scientific knowledge andan understanding of all aspects of infectious dise ases and their control. The aim of our book is to present the reader with the general picture and the main ideas of the subject. The book introduces the reader to methodological aspectsof epidemiology that are specific for infectious diseases and provides insight into the epidemiology of some classes of infectious diseases characterized by their main modes of transmission. This choice of topics bridges the gapbetween scientific research on the clinical, biological, mathematical, social and economic aspect s of infectious diseases and their applications in public health. The book will help the reader to understand the impact of infectiousdiseases on modern society and the instruments that policy makers have at their disposal to deal with these challenges. I t is written for students of the health sciences, both of curative medicine and public health, and for expertsthat are active in these and related domains, and it may be of interest for the educated layman since the technical level is kept relatively low. The authors are internationally renowned experts in the field of infectious diseaseepidemiology. The editors come from different scientific backgrounds but have been devoted to research in infectious disease epidemiology for many years.

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.

Note:This volume is a collection of articles from the proceedings of the International School of Structural Biology and Magnetic Resonance 8th Course: Biophysics and the Challenges of Emerging Threats. This NATO Advance Study Institute(ASI) was held in Er ice at the Ettore Majorana Foundation and Centre for Scientific Culture on 19 through 30 June 2007. The ASI brought together a diverse group of experts who bridged the fields of virology and biology, biophysics,chemistry and physics. Prominent lecturers a nd students from around the world representant a total of 24 countries participated in the NATO ASI organized by Professors Joseph Puglisi (Stanford University, USA) and Alexander Arseniev(Moscow, RU). The central hypothesis underlying this ASI was that i nterdisciplinary research, merging principles of physics, chemistry and biology, can drive new discovery in detecting and fighting bioterrorism agents, lead to cleanerenvironments, and help propel development in NATO partner countries. The ASI merged the related disciplines of biophysics, biochemistry and molecular structure to treat, detect, and understand emerging infectious diseases. It addressedthe treatment and detection of bioterrorism agents, and focused on critical partner country priorities in bi otechnology, materials, drug discovery and the environment. It provided crossroads discussing new technologies in biophysicsand structural biology, their implications pathogen detection and treatment and their role in partner country development. The ASI allowed deep and wide-ranging discussion between lecturers and students, providing overviews of keyareas and links between them. The range of topics represent the diversity of critical problems between structural biology, biochemistry and biophysics, in w hich lies the fertile ground of drug development, biotechnology and newmaterials

Note:This text provides the first-ever compilation of bias analysis methods for use with epidemiologic data. It guides the reader through the planning stages of bias analysis, including the design of validation studies and thecollection of validity data f rom other sources. Three chapters present methods for corrections to address selection bias, uncontrolled confounding, and classification errors. Subsequent chapters extend these methods to multidimensionalbias analysis, probabilistic bias analysis, and m ultiple bias analysis. The text concludes with a chapter on presentation and interpretation of bias analysis results. Although techniques for bias analysis have been available fordecades, these methods are considered difficult to implement. This text not only gathers the methods into one cohesive and organized presentation, it also explains the methods in a consistent fashion and provides customizablespreadsheets to implement the solutions. By downloading the spreadsheets (available at links provided in t he text), readers can follow the examples in the text and then modify the spreadsheet to complete their own bias analyses.Readers without experience using quantitative bias analysis will be able to design, implement, and understand bias analyses that addr ess the major threats to the validity of epidemiologic research. More experienced analysts will valuethe compilation of bias analysis methods and links to software tools that facilitate their projects. Timothy L. Lash is an Associate Professor of Epidemio logy and Matthew P. Fox is an Assistant Professor in the Center for InternationalHealth and Development, both at the Boston University School of Public Health. Aliza K. Fink is a Project Manager at Macro International in Bethesda, Maryland. Together they have organized and presented many day-long workshops on themethods of quantitative bias analysis.

Title:The Frailty Model [electronic resource]

Date:2008

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Clustered survival data are encountered in many scientific disciplines including human and veterinary medicine, biology, epidemiology, public health and demography. Frailty models provide a powerful tool to analyse clusteredsurvival data. In contrast to the large number of research publications on frailty models, relatively few statistical software packages contain frailty models. It is demanding for statistical practitioners and graduate students tograsp a good knowledge on frailty models from the e xisting literature. This book provides an in-depth discussion and explanation of the basics of frailty model methodology for such readers. The discussion includes parametric andsemiparametric frailty models and accelerated failure time models. Common tech niques to fit frailty models include the EM-algorithm, penalised likelihood techniques, Laplacian integration and Bayesian techniques. More advanced frailtymodels for hierarchical data are also included. Real-life examples are used to demonstrate how part icular frailty models can be fitted and how the results should be interpreted. The programs to fit all the worked-out examples in thebook are available from the Springer website with most of the programs developed in the freeware packages R and Winbugs. T he book starts with a brief overview of some basic concepts in classical survival analysis, collecting what isneeded for the reading on the more complex frailty models. Luc Duchateau is Associate Professor of Statistics at the Faculty of Veterinary Medici ne of the Ghent University, Belgium. He is board member of the Quetelet Society (BelgianRegion of the International Biometric Society) and of the International Biometric Society Channel Network. He has collaborated extensively with physicians in oncology and allergy, public health workers and veterinarians, and is anauthor of numerous papers in statistical, medical and veterinarian journals.
