A Stage Structured Hybrid Model for Within-Host Emerging Infectious Disease Modelling

Abstract:

Stochasticity and spatial distribution of the pathogen play a critical role in determining the outcome of an infection. 1 in a million immune system cells are specific to a particular pathogen. The serendipitous encounter of such a rare immune system cell with its fated antigen can determine the mortality of the infected animal. Moreover pathogens may remain initially localized in a small volume of tissue. Hence stochastic and spatial aspects play an important role in pathogenesis, especially...
