In temperate zones, all-cause mortality exhibits a marked seasonality, and influenza represents a major cause of winter excess mortality. We present a statistical model, FluMOMO, which estimate influenza associated mortality from all-cause mortality data and apply it to Danish data from 2010/11 to 2016/17.

To quantify the contribution of changes in different risk factors population levels and treatment uptake on the decline in CHD mortality in Denmark from 1991 to 2007 in different socioeconomic groups.
There is no consensus in the literature about the role of socioeconomic factors on influenza mortality during the 1918 pandemic. While some scholars have found that social factors were important, othe...
We thank Dr. Alonso et al. for their commentary on our articles, "Estimates of Seasonal Influenza Associated Mortality in Bangladesh, 2010-12″ and "The National Burden of Influenza-Associated Sever...
This paper illuminates short-term birth sequelae of the influenza pandemic of 1918-20 in the USA using monthly data on births and all-cause deaths for 19 US states in conjunction with data on maternal...
Information is lacking about the severity of complications in children with influenza admitted to paediatric intensive care units (PICU) in the UK. In this study, we report risk factors for mortality,...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether BCG vaccination shortly after birth can reduce early infant mortality in a rural setting.
This study is powered to prospectively evaluate the relative effectiveness of adjuvanted trivalent influenza vaccine (aTIV; FLUAD) in preventing influenza mortality, hospitalization, and f...
Pneumonia is a major cause of mortality and morbidity. A large body of evidence concerning the mortality risk factors in elderly patients with pneumonia has been reported; however, less is...
Predictors for pulmonary mortality was determined in a cohort of 79 patients with acute-GVHD of the skin. The acute-GVHD treatment was corticosteroids and photochemotherapy (Photosensitiza...
Vaccination is currently the most effective means of controlling influenza and preventing its complications and mortality in persons at risk. Once a year, a meeting of WHO experts takes p...
Postnatal deaths from BIRTH to 365 days after birth in a given population. Postneonatal mortality represents deaths between 28 days and 365 days after birth (as defined by National Center for Health Statistics). Neonatal mortality represents deaths from birth to 27 days after birth.
Number of fetal deaths with stated or presumed gestation of 20 weeks or more in a given population. Late fetal mortality is death after of 28 weeks or more.
An acute, transmissible, infectious disease associated with high MORTALITY and MORBIDITY in young turkeys (poults). It is characterized by DIARRHEA; ANOREXIA; growth depression, and immune dysfunction. The cause is unknown but astroviruses (AVASTROVIRUS) and coronaviruses (CORONAVIRUS, TURKEY) have been isolated from diseased poults and are thought to cause the enteritis and increased susceptibility to bacterial infections.
A measure of the mortality and morbidity rates among patients who receive CRITICAL CARE and INTENSIVE CARE as determined from the date of hospital discharge or release.
Demographic and epidemiologic changes that have occurred in the last five decades in many developing countries and that are characterized by major growth in the number and proportion of middle-aged and elderly persons and in the frequency of the diseases that occur in these age groups. The health transition is the result of efforts to improve maternal and child health via primary care and outreach services and such efforts have been responsible for a decrease in the birth rate; reduced maternal mortality; improved preventive services; reduced infant mortality, and the increased life expectancy that defines the transition.
