Understanding transmission dynamics is useful for tuberculosis (TB) control. We conducted a population-based molecular epidemiological study to understand TB transmission in Ghana.
Tuberculosis remains a global health problem with an enormous burden of disease, estimated at 10.4 million new cases in 2015. To stop the tuberculosis epidemic, it is critical that we interrupt tuberc...
Recent evidence suggests hospital transmission of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is uncommon in UK centers that have implemented sustained infection control programmes. We investig...
In the technology assessment literature, the leading alternative to CBA-like methods is usually held to be precaution, which is understood in various ways but is always about making decisions under co...
Our understanding of influenza A virus transmission between humans and pigs is limited.
394 participants were cluster-randomized during 2010-2014. Depending on which ward the participants admitted to, they were allotted to free rehabilitation (non-precaution group, NPG, n=226...

The proposed protocol aims to characterize the infectious episodes in pancreas transplant recipients under the current medical care. Knowing these patients infectious risks, the types of i...
The failure of extubation in pediatric resuscitation is most often described as the need for reintubation within 48 hours after extubation. The failure rate of extubation in pediatric inte...

An illness caused by an infectious agent or its toxins that occurs through the direct or indirect transmission of the infectious agent or its products from an infected individual or via an animal, vector or the inanimate environment to a susceptible animal or human host.
The transmission of infectious disease or pathogens. When transmission is within the same species, the mode can be horizontal or vertical (INFECTIOUS DISEASE TRANSMISSION, VERTICAL).
The transmission of infectious disease or pathogens from one generation to another. It includes transmission in utero or intrapartum by exposure to blood and secretions, and postpartum exposure via breastfeeding.
The transmission of infectious disease or pathogens from patients to health professionals or health care workers. It includes transmission via direct or indirect exposure to bacterial, fungal, parasitic, or viral agents.
