  1. Incubation period, severity of disease, and infecting dose : evidence from a Salmonella outbreak.

    Article - En anglais

    The associations between infecting dose, incubation period, and the severity of disease were examined in a large outbreak of Salmonella typhimurium which occurred at a medical conference in Wales in 1986.

    Persons who had eaten two or more pieces of the chicken vehicle had, on average, shorter geometric mean incubation periods than those who had only eaten one piece: 16.6 hours (95% confidence interval (Cl) 13.5-20.5) compared with 20.7 hours (95% CI 19.0-22.6) (t=1.97, p<0.05).
