Clinical and Epidemiological Predictors of Transmission in Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS)

Chen, M.I., Chow, A.L., Earnest, A. et al. (2006). Clinical and Epidemiological Predictors of Transmission in Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). BMC Infectious Diseases. 6:151.

They found several factors that seemed to contribute to transmission including delay to isolation; admission to a non-isolation facility; and higher lactate dehydrogenase levels of greater than 650 IU/L.
