Natural history and epidemiology of Ebola virus disease

May 19, 2022

During the 2013-2016 Ebola virus disease (EVD) epidemic in West Africa, there was a significant burden of pauci-/asymptomatic infection and unrecongnized EVD, but the public health and clinical consequences have been unclear, potentially leading to unknown transmission and untreated clinical sequelae. This dissertation talk will: 1) assess exposure risk in a dose-dependent relationship with severity of illness, 2) examine whether clinical sequelae occur after mild EVD, and 3) identify inflammatory markers that may partially explain how survivors respond to recovery from clinical sequelae.
