PLOS 27/04/17 Detecting the impact of temperature on transmission of Zika, dengue, and chikungunya using mechanistic models. Abstract Recent epidemics of Zika, dengue, and chikungunya have heightened the need to understand the seasonal and geographic range of transmission by Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus mosquitoes.
We use mechanistic transmission models to derive predictions for how the probability and magnitude of transmission for Zika, chikungunya, and dengue change with mean temperature, and we show that these predictions are well matched by human case data. Across all three viruses, models and human case data both show that transmission occurs between 18–34°C with maximal transmission occurring in a range from 26–29°C. Controlling for population size and two socioeconomic factors, temperature-dependent transmission based on our mechanistic model is an important predictor of human transmission occurrence and incidence.
Author summary Understanding the drivers of recent Zika, dengue, and chikungunya epidemics is a major public health priority. Copyright: © 2017 Mordecai et al. Introduction Results Fig 1.

PLOS 09/05/16 The Role of Serotype Interactions and Seasonality in Dengue Model Selection and Control: Insights from a Pattern Matching Approach. Abstract The epidemiology of dengue fever is characterized by highly seasonal, multi-annual fluctuations, and the irregular circulation of its four serotypes.
It is believed that this behaviour arises from the interplay between environmental drivers and serotype interactions. The exact mechanism, however, is uncertain. Constraining mathematical models to patterns characteristic to dengue epidemiology offers a means for detecting such mechanisms. Here, we used a pattern-oriented modelling (POM) strategy to fit and assess a range of dengue models, driven by combinations of temporary cross protective-immunity, cross-enhancement, and seasonal forcing, on their ability to capture the main characteristics of dengue dynamics. Author Summary The fluctuations of multi-serotype infectious diseases are often highly irregular and hard to predict. Editor: Samuel V. BMC INFORMATICS 16/04/16 Analysis of significant factors for dengue fever incidence prediction.
As mentioned previously, no specific treatment exists for dengue infection, and effective vaccines remain at the developmental stage.
Therefore, interrupting pathogen transmission by mosquito control is the most effective means of controlling dengue infection. In Thailand, although mosquito surveillance has been in regular operation for many years, surveillance has not appeared to fully prevent dengue outbreaks. Seasonal factor has been previously studied by Wongkoon et al.  which is similar to the work in this report.
Nonetheless, the main differences between these works are: firstly, we did not exploit only the number of Ae. aegypti populations found in urban and rural areas as demonstrated by Wongkoon et al.  but the dengue virus infection rate of larva and adult Ae. aegypti mosquitoes, which has never been determined for dengue fever transmission, was exploited. Infected female mosquito has also been used to predict dengue cases in our previous work .

Abstract Understanding the spatial characteristics of dengue fever (DF) incidences is crucial for governmental agencies to implement effective disease control strategies.
We investigated the associations between environmental and socioeconomic factors and DF geographic distribution, are proposed a probabilistic risk assessment approach that uses threshold-based quantile regression to identify the significant risk factors for DF transmission and estimate the spatial distribution of DF risk regarding full probability distributions. To interpret risk, return period was also included to characterize the frequency pattern of DF geographic occurrences.
The study area included old Kaohsiung City and Fongshan District, two areas in Taiwan that have been affected by severe DF infections in recent decades.

Many different case data-based statistical methods are used to trigger outbreak response. Here we show that these methods are inconsistent and incomparable. This may hinder the effectiveness of outbreak response. Clear quantitative definitions of an outbreak are a prerequisite for effective outbreak early warning and response.

PLOS 11/01/11 Modeling the Dynamic Transmission of Dengue Fever: Investigating Disease Persistence. Abstract Background Dengue is a disease of great complexity, due to interactions between humans, mosquitoes and various virus serotypes as well as efficient vector survival strategies.
Thus, understanding the factors influencing the persistence of the disease has been a challenge for scientists and policy makers. The aim of this study is to investigate the influence of various factors related to humans and vectors in the maintenance of viral transmission during extended periods. Methodology/Principal Findings We developed a stochastic cellular automata model to simulate the spread of dengue fever in a dense community. Conclusions/Significance This study contributed to a better understanding of the dynamics of dengue subsistence.
Author Summary. PLOS 31/05/11 Using Web Search Query Data to Monitor Dengue Epidemics: A New Model for Neglected Tropical Disease Surveillance. Abstract Background A variety of obstacles including bureaucracy and lack of resources have interfered with timely detection and reporting of dengue cases in many endemic countries. Surveillance efforts have turned to modern data sources, such as Internet search queries, which have been shown to be effective for monitoring influenza-like illnesses. However, few have evaluated the utility of web search query data for other diseases, especially those of high morbidity and mortality or where a vaccine may not exist. In this study, we aimed to assess whether web search queries are a viable data source for the early detection and monitoring of dengue epidemics. Methodology/Principal Findings.

Abstract Dengue fever affects over a 100 million people annually hence is one of the world's most important vector-borne diseases. The transmission area of this disease continues to expand due to many direct and indirect factors linked to urban sprawl, increased travel and global warming. Current preventative measures include mosquito control programs, yet due to the complex nature of the disease and the increased importation risk along with the lack of efficient prophylactic measures, successful disease control and elimination is not realistic in the foreseeable future.
