A Dynamic Transmission Model for Predicting Trends in Helicobacter pylori and Associated Diseases in the United States

MF Rupnow, Ross D. Shachter, Douglas K. Owens, Julie Parsonnet
Emerging Infectious Diseases , 2000

To assess the benefits of intervention programs against Helicobacter pylori infection, we estimated the baseline curves of its incidence and prevalence. We developed a mathematical (compartmental) model of the intrinsic dynamics of H. pylori, which represents the natural history of infection and disease progression. Our model divided the population according to age, infection status, and clinical state. Case-patients were followed from birth to death. A proportion of the population acquired H.
