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

Case % Disease transition events that are colonizations1 % Disease transition events that occur in households2
Base case 94.6 72.9
PAR sensitivity 94.7 53.9
TIP sensitivity 94.5 82.2
AIP sensitivity 96.9 72.7
  1. Notes: A disease event transition is defined here as a transition from the uncolonized state to the colonized state or a transition from the colonized state to the infected state. 1: Computed as (Number of Colonizations)/(Number of Colonizations + Number of Infections). 2: Computed as (Number of Colonizations and Infections That Occur in Households)/(Number of Colonizations + Number of Infections).
