Table 2 Estimation of the reproduction numbers R 0 for MDA + and MDA piglets using the best model (model 2)

From: Maternally-derived antibodies do not prevent transmission of swine influenza A virus between pigs

  Shedding period (days) Direct transmission rate β (days 1 ) Susceptibility
factor σ
MDA+ piglets 6.1 [5.9–6.4]a 2.43 [1.09–4.23]a 0.39 [0.21–0.70] 14.8 [6.4–27.1]
MDA piglets 5.8 [1.4–18.9]
  1. a Overall population estimate applying to both groups.
