Whose burden? A comprehensive approach to describing burden of disease by synthesizing evidence from diverse perspectivesDownload
Epidemiologists tasked with addressing public concerns about a specific health issue and developing effective public health strategies aimed at reducing related health risks must begin by describing the extent of the health threat in the target population. Typical approaches use quantitative...
Allee effects are thought to mediate the dynamics of population colonization, particularly for invasive species. However, Allee effects acting on parasites have rarely been considered in the analogous process of infectious disease establishment and spread. We studied the colonization of...
We conducted a case-referent study of the effect of exposure to bisphenol-A on fetal growth in utero in full-term, live-born singletons in Alberta, Canada. Newborns <10 percentile of expected weight for gestational age and sex were individually matched on sex, maternal smoking and maternal age to...
