Routine and pulse vaccination for Lassa virus could reduce high levels of endemic disease: A mathematical modelling study

Davies, Josephine; Lokuge, Kamalini; Glass, Kathryn

Description

Lassa fever is an acute viral illness caused by Lassa virus (LASV), a rodent-borne pathogen. LASV is endemic to much of Sub-Saharan West Africa, where seasonal outbreaks cause significant morbidity and mortality. Increased global awareness of LASV has led to development of improved diagnostic tests, treatments and vaccines. As vaccine candidates are trialled, it is essential to assess the potential outcomes of introducing a LASV vaccination program in endemic regions. This study investigates...[Show more]
