A stochastic model for seroconversion time using exponential distribution
Author(s): A Veena and R Kannan
Abstract: The impact of the immune system's cumulative damage as a result of HIV infection is explored. This paper concentrates on the study of shock models and the cumulative damage process. The term "random antigenic diversity threshold" refers to the antigenic diversity threshold that causes seroconversion. Every interaction creates and adds to the antigenic variety, which when it reaches a certain threshold level causes seroconversion in the individual. The exponential distribution is used as the threshold in the statistical analysis of the time to seroconversion for HIV-infected individuals.
