A mathematical model studying mosquito-stage transmission-blocking vaccines

Abstract / Introduction Related Papers Cited by
  • A compartmental deterministic model is proposed to evaluate the effectiveness of transmission-blocking vaccines of malaria, which targets at the parasite stage in the mosquito. The model is rigorously analyzed and numerical simulations are performed. The results and implications are discussed.
