A global map of environmental suitability for Zika virus and the estimated population living at potential risk can help refine public health guidelines, travel advisories and intervention strategies at a crucial time in the global emergence of this arbovirus.
Age-specific incidence data, combined with mechanistic models of immunity, provides a unique opportunity to characterize disease transmission of dengue and other immunizing diseases at high temporal and spatial resolution.
Antibody responses to individual and optimal combinations of P. vivax recombinant proteins in naturally-exposed populations help to identify correlates of protective immunity, and establish a clear path to testing a multicomponent P. vivax vaccine.
Among children in low-resource settings, diverse enteropathogens share common, population-level antibody dynamics, which creates a new opportunity to estimate transmission through serologic surveillance.
New mammarenaviruses have been identified from rodents in Cambodia and Thailand, and the Cardamones variant of Wēnzhōu virus has been found in Cambodian patients presenting with fever and respiratory symptoms.
An individual-based model estimates exogenous boosting of immunity following re-exposure to chickenpox is limited to 2 years after re-exposure, but an increase in herpes zoster incidence is still expected to occur following universal varicella vaccination.
Human mobility drives malaria importation within countries and threatens elimination interventions, but can be measured using new approaches that combine parasite genetics, mobile phone data, travel surveys and models.
