Transmission Modeling with Regression Adjustment for Analyzing Household-based Studies of Infectious Disease

Background: Household contacts of people infected with a transmissible disease may be at risk due to this proximate exposure, or from other unobserved sources. Understanding sources of variation in infection risk is essential for effectively …

Age-specific risks of tuberculosis infection from household- and community-exposures suggest opportunities for interventions in a high-burden setting

We analyzed data from a large population-based prospective cohort study of household contacts of tuberculosis patients in Lima, Peru, to estimate the importance of within-household transmission relative to community-based transmission. We identified …
