  • A geographical study on regional variations of disease mortality
  • This study attempts to elucidate methods to analyze and clarify regional variations of disease mortality. These variations are analyzed from many sides, various types of diseases in various times and geographical scales. Furthermore, the regional
  • variation of cerebrovascular disease is observed, in all Japan and Yamagata Prefecture.
  • Review of the research on geographical distribution of disease mortality in Japan, with particular attention to cerebrovascular disease
  • Research on the geographical distribution mortality from cerebrovascular disease in Japan which has been very influencal in promoting associative analysis in medical geography. It is the major stream of medico-geographical research in Japan. - (SGA)
  • The invasion of human epidemic diseases into Australia, New Zealand, and the Southwest Pacific: the geographical context
  • Australia ; Diffusion ; Disease ; Epidemic ; Epidemiology ; Health ; New Zealand ; Pacific Region ; Space time
  • Changes in the spread of these disease-causing viruses are examined. The impact of reduced travel times between several areas on the transfer of infectious human diseases is highlighted. The consequences of increasing population size and decreasing
  • remoteness on the entry of other infectious diseases are noted.
  • Health and disease in tribal societies.
  • Man, environment and disease in Britain. A medical geography through the ages
  • Urban/rural differences in behavioral risk factors for chronic diseases

  • Coccidioidomycosis is endemic in the US Southwest; histoplasmosis occurs in the East and Central states. Suggests environmental relationships with these diseases both caused by soil fungi. - (DWG)
  • Kaschin-Beck disease in China : geographical epidemiology and its environmental pathogenicity
  • Low level of selenium in the environment is a basic causation of Kaschin-Beck disease, while some other factors must be taken into account.
  • Caribbean ; Disease ; Health ; Latin America ; Medical geography ; Medical services ; Regional pathology ; Research ; Spatial analysis ; Tropical endemic disease
  • Geographical research on disease ecology in the 1980s has examined the role of environmental characteristics in the distribution of particular diseases and the contribution of ecological and socioeconomic variables to differential risk of infection
  • . Research was also published on spatial patterns of health and disease and the provision of health services.―(DWG)
  • Climate and infectious disease in the southwestern United States
  • This paper presents a review of 4 infectious diseases found in the southwestern USA that are impacted by climate conditions. Hantavirus and plague are spread by rodents, dengue is transmitted through the bite of the Aedes mosquito
  • and coccidioidomycosis is caused by a soil dwelling fungus. For each disease, an introductory section briefly outlines the importance of the illness within the Southwest, and a review of climate impacts on the disease follows. Finally, future research needs, to more

  • Dengue fever, a virus spread by two species of Aedes mosquitoes, now has those two vectors in the USA. Suitable climate in the southern United States and frequent movement of people with the disease from Mexico and the Caribbean may create a serious
  • new disease problem in the USA. - (DWG)
  • AIDS ; Diffusion ; Disease ; Epidemic;Disease outbreak ; Health ; United States
  • The AA. develop a biologically-oriented mathematical model, of intermediate complexity, for the AIDS pandemic in the United States that is not only quantitatively consistent with the changing dynamics of the disease, but also allows them to estimate
  • Population biology of infections diseases: PartI
  • If the host population is taken to be a dynamic variable (rather than constant, as conventionally assumed), a wider understanding of the population biology of infections diseases emerges. In this first part of a two-part article, mathematical models
  • Apparent and actual disease landscapes - Some reflections on the geographical definition of health and disease
  • Source region effects in epidemic disease modeling: comparisons between influenza and HIV
  • An appropriate form of a multiregion disease model is fitted to the spread of the 1957 Asian influenza pandemic and then used to examine the distributions of warning times associated with varying the location of the source region. Disease parameters

  • This parasitic disease has a marked potential for eradication through a combination of water supply management, health education, and controlled medical intervention. These methods require the development of water wells and establishment of schools
  • . A model is developed to determine the best locations for the different types of facilities used to fight the disease.

  • The AA. used the Thornwaite-Mather water budget technique to predict soil moisture under forest canopies, the primary habitat for the tick vectors of Lyme disease bacteria. This information, together with other environmental variables that correlate
