Abstract

In this paper, we present an age-structured mathematical model for infectious disease in vivo with infection age of cells. The model contains an immune variable and the effect of absorption of pathogens into uninfected cells. We construct Lyapunov functionals for the model and prove that the time derivative of the functionals are nonpositive. Using this, we prove the global stability results for the model. Especially, we present the full mathematical detail of the proof of the global stability.
