2021 journal article

Combining epidemiological and ecological methods to quantify social effects on Escherichia coli transmission


By: T. Farthing n, D. Dawson n, M. Sanderson*, H. Seger* & C. Lanzas n

author keywords: contact network; disease ecology; E; coli; network epidemiology; real-time location; social network
TL;DR: Transmission experiments can be combined with real-time location data collection and processing procedures to create an effective framework for quantifying sociobehavioural effects on microparasite transmission, and it is shown that observed effects were not consistent between similar populations.

Inferring environmental transmission using phylodynamics: a case-study using simulated evolution of an enteric pathogen


By: D. Dawson n, D. Rasmussen n, X. Peng n & C. Lanzas n

author keywords: environmental transmission; disease transmission modelling; phylodynamics; whole-genome sequencing
MeSH headings : Epidemics; Phylogeny; Probability
TL;DR: It is concluded that prior knowledge of the likely ecology and population structure of pathogens in host and non-host environments is critical to fully using phylodynamic techniques. (via Semantic Scholar)

Ecological and Socioeconomic Factors Associated with Bartonella henselae Exposure in Dogs Tested for Vector-Borne Diseases in North Carolina

Vector-Borne and Zoonotic Diseases, 19(8), 582–595.

By: E. Lashnits n, D. Dawson n, E. Breitschwerdt n & C. Lanzas n

author keywords: canine; seroreactivity; tick; flea; zoonoses; vector-borne
MeSH headings : Animals; Bartonella Infections / epidemiology; Bartonella Infections / microbiology; Bartonella Infections / veterinary; Bartonella henselae; Dog Diseases / epidemiology; Dog Diseases / microbiology; Dogs; Ecosystem; Female; Male; North Carolina / epidemiology; Retrospective Studies; Risk Factors; Seroepidemiologic Studies; Socioeconomic Factors; Tick-Borne Diseases / epidemiology
TL;DR: Of 25 explanatory factors considered, the model combining demographic, socioeconomic, climatic, and land use variables fits best, and female intact sex and increasing percentage of the county with low-intensity development and evergreen forest were associated with higher seroreactivity.

The shapes of virulence to come


By: A. Pandey* & D. Dawson n

TL;DR: Understanding virulence evolution pressures in different disease systems (e.g. vector-borne, environmentally transmitted and opportunistic) is critical to forecasting disease dynamics under changing conditions. (via Semantic Scholar)

Transmission on empirical dynamic contact networks is influenced by data processing decisions

EPIDEMICS, 26, 32–42.

By: D. Dawson n, T. Farthing n, M. Sanderson* & C. Lanzas n

author keywords: Dynamic contact data; Data processing; Entropy; Contact networks; Transmission dynamics; Disease transmission model
MeSH headings : Animals; Cattle; Cattle Diseases / epidemiology; Cattle Diseases / transmission; Epidemics / statistics & numerical data; Epidemics / veterinary; Models, Statistical
TL;DR: It is found that changes made to information content by processing decisions translated to significant impacts to the transmission dynamics of disease models using the contact data, and that SpTh had the largest independent influence on information content. (via Semantic Scholar)

2018 journal article

Investigating behavioral drivers of seasonal Shiga-Toxigenic Escherichia Coli (STEC) patterns in grazing cattle using an agent-based model

PLOS ONE, 13(10).

By: D. Dawson n, J. Keung*, M. Napoles*, M. Vella*, S. Chen n, M. Sanderson*, C. Lanzas n

MeSH headings : Animals; Cattle; Cattle Diseases / microbiology; Cattle Diseases / transmission; Drinking Behavior / physiology; Escherichia coli Infections / microbiology; Escherichia coli Infections / transmission; Escherichia coli Infections / veterinary; Escherichia coli O157 / pathogenicity; Feces / microbiology; Herbivory / physiology; Seasons; Weather
TL;DR: A spatially explicit agent-based model was constructed that accounted for the effect of temperature fluctuations on cattle behavior and its effect on pathogen survival in the environment, and model simulations indicated that factors influencing cattle aggregation, such as temperature, were likely strong drivers of transmission dynamics of enteric pathogens.

Transgenerational endpoints provide increased sensitivity and insight into multigenerational responses of Lymnaea stagnalis exposed to cadmium


By: E. Reategui-Zirena*, B. Fidder*, A. Olson*, D. Dawson n, T. Bilbo* & C. Salice*

author keywords: Evolutionary toxicology; Freshwater invertebrate; Phenotypic plasticity; Multigenerational; Heavy metal
MeSH headings : Animals; Cadmium / toxicity; Dose-Response Relationship, Drug; Drug Tolerance; Ecotoxicology / methods; Endpoint Determination; Lymnaea / drug effects; Lymnaea / growth & development; Lymnaea / physiology; Reproduction / drug effects; Toxicity Tests / methods; Water Pollutants, Chemical / toxicity
TL;DR: It is found that parental exposure duration has important implications for offspring effects and that contaminant concentrations that are not directly toxic to parents can cause transgenerational changes in resistance that have significant implications for toxicity testing and adaptive responses.
