A simulation model to estimate the risk of transfusion-transmitted arboviral infection

Shang, G.; Biggerstaff, B.J.; Gahan, M.E.; Lidbury, B.A.; Richardson, Alice


Background The arboviruses West Nile virus (WNV), dengue virus (DENV) and Ross River virus (RRV) have been demonstrated to be blood transfusion-transmissible. A model to estimate the risk of WNV to the blood supply using a Monte Carlo approach has been developed and also applied to Chikungunya virus. Also, a probabilistic model was developed to assess the risk of DENV to blood safety, which was later adapted to RRV. To address efficacy and limitations within each model we present a hybrid model...[Show more]
