Table 1 Agent disease state transmission/transition parameters

From: Modeling the transmission of community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus: a dynamic agent-based simulation

Parameter (Probability/Hour) Range of values tested Range for good model fits Best fit of disease state transition probabilities
a 2.053 × 10−5 - 6.160 × 10−5 3.080 × 10−5 - 5.134 × 10−5 4.107 × 10−5
b 2.625 × 10−6 - 7.875 × 10−6 2.625 × 10−6 - 3.938 × 10−6 3.938 × 10−6
e 7.961 × 10−5 - 2.388 × 10−4 7.961 × 10−5 - 1.194 × 10−4 1.194 × 10−4
  1. Notes: a is the probability per hour of an uncolonized agent who is located in a place with one or more colonized individuals transitioning to colonized state. b is the probability per hour of a colonized agent spontaneously transitioning to infected state. e is the probability per hour of a colonized agent spontaneously transitioning to uncolonized state.
