Estimating parameter distributions and developing epidemiological methods and tools to support gastrointestinal outbreak investigation

Alternative title:
Estimating incubation period of common gastrointestinal pathogens
Abstract:

Incubation periods of common gastrointestinal pathogens are cited inconsistently without a solid evidence base for these distributions or factors affecting incubation time. In some high-profile outbreaks, such as the STEC O104 outbreak in Germany or the large 2009 STEC O157 outbreak in South East England, incubation periods were longer than expected complicating the collection of exposure data and the outbreak investigation process. This research aimed to use observational and experimental...
