Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Immune system

Her primary scientific interests are in Immunology, Internal medicine, Helminthiasis, Pregnancy and Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Viral load, Immune system, Viral disease, Allergy and Praziquantel are the core of her Immunology study. Her Internal medicine research includes elements of Tuberculin, Sputum and Surgery.

In her study, Pulmonary tuberculosis is strongly linked to Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which falls under the umbrella field of Sputum. Her studies in Helminthiasis integrate themes in fields like Strongyloidiasis, Hookworm infection and Deworming. Her Pregnancy research includes themes of Tetanus, Pediatrics and Risk factor.

Her most cited work include:

  • Impact of HIV on tuberculosis in Zambia: a cross sectional study. (205 citations)
  • Twice weekly tuberculosis preventive therapy in HIV infection in Zambia (199 citations)
  • Negative sputum smear results in HIV-positive patients with pulmonary tuberculosis in Lusaka, Zambia (174 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Her main research concerns Immunology, Internal medicine, Pregnancy, Pediatrics and Malaria. Her Immunology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Alison M. Elliott interconnects Gastroenterology, Tuberculous meningitis, Rifampicin and Surgery in the investigation of issues within Internal medicine.

Her research integrates issues of Praziquantel and Obstetrics in her study of Pregnancy. Her study in Pediatrics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Epidemiology, Incidence, Randomized controlled trial, Allergy and Cohort. In her study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Malaria, Atopy is strongly linked to Environmental health.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (68.59%)
  • Internal medicine (30.32%)
  • Pregnancy (25.99%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (30.32%)
  • Immunology (68.59%)
  • Environmental health (10.83%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Internal medicine, Immunology, Environmental health, Malaria and Odds ratio are her primary areas of study. The Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Schistosomiasis, Praziquantel, Tuberculous meningitis and Gastroenterology. Her Immunology study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

The various areas that she examines in her Environmental health study include Epidemiology and Atopy. Her study on Parasitemia is often connected to Underweight as part of broader study in Malaria. Her Odds ratio research focuses on Confidence interval and how it relates to Asthma, Pediatrics, Offspring, Obstetrics and Confounding.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Xpert MTB/RIF Ultra for the diagnosis of HIV-associated tuberculous meningitis: a prospective validation study. (34 citations)
  • Praziquantel for the treatment of schistosomiasis during human pregnancy. (29 citations)
  • Perinatal risk factors for neonatal encephalopathy: an unmatched case-control study. (28 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Immune system

Alison M. Elliott spends much of her time researching Internal medicine, Environmental health, Malaria, Immunology and Odds ratio. The study incorporates disciplines such as Tuberculous meningitis and Praziquantel in addition to Internal medicine. Her Environmental health research incorporates themes from Epidemiology, Allergy, Asthma, Atopy and Global health.

Her study looks at the relationship between Malaria and topics such as Iron deficiency, which overlap with Ferritin and Parasitemia. Immunoglobulin E, Antibody and Virus are the subjects of her Immunology studies. Her research integrates issues of Hospital outcomes and Urine in her study of Odds ratio.
