Evaluating methodological approaches to assess the severity of infection with SARS-CoV-2 variants: scoping review and applications on Belgian COVID-19 data.

potential limitations and biases that researchers are confronted with and evaluate different methodological approaches to study the severity of infection with SARS-CoV-2 variants. METHODS: We reviewed the ...

Evaluating methodological approaches to assess the severity of infection with SARS-CoV-2 variants: scoping review and applications on Belgian COVID-19 data.

Quality control and correction method for air temperature data from a citizen science weather station network in Leuven, Belgium

intra-station (station-specific) temperature biases by means of a random forest approach. The QC method is evaluated using data from four WH2600 stations installed next to official weather stations belonging to ...

Sex difference in innate inflammatory response and macrophage polarization in Streptococcus agalactiae-induced pneumonia and potential role of microRNA-223-3p.

polarization, we investigated its potential contribution in sex bias of GBS-induced innate inflammatory response. Knock-down of miR-223-3p with specific antagomiR resulted in increased inflammatory response and ...

Severity of infection with the SARS-CoV-2 B.1.1.7 lineage among hospitalized COVID-19 patients in Belgium.

analyses were performed to assess the influence of selection bias, vaccination rollout, and unmeasured confounding. RESULTS: We observed no difference between the exposed and unexposed group in severe ...

What triggers selective daily mobility among older adults? A study comparing trip and environmental characteristics between observed path and shortest path.

Health Place (2021) Abstract: Interest is growing in neighborhood effects on health beyond individual’s home locations. However, few studies accounted for selective daily mobility bias. Selective mobility ...

Conceptual causal framework to assess the effect of SARS-CoV-2 variants on COVID-19 disease severity among hospitalized patients.

which assumptions on the relationship between (confounding) variables are made explicit. Various DAG s are presented to explore specific study design options and the risk for selection bias. Next, the ...

Selection and use of reference panels: a case study highlighting current gaps in the materials available for foot and mouth disease.

are required. These are to: reduce bias in estimates of the diagnostic sensitivity and inter-serotypic specificity of tests used to detect diverse strains of FMD virus (FMDV), provide bio-safe positive ...
