Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Asthma
  • Disease

Allan B. Becker spends much of his time researching Asthma, Pediatrics, Immunology, Family medicine and Allergy. The concepts of his Asthma study are interwoven with issues in Respiratory disease, MEDLINE, Relative risk, Randomized controlled trial and Emergency department. His Pediatrics research integrates issues from Odds ratio, Longitudinal study, Health care, Asthma management and Public health.

As part of one scientific family, Allan B. Becker deals mainly with the area of Immunology, narrowing it down to issues related to the Allele, and often Genome-wide association study, Genetic association, Genotype and Phenotype. His Allergy research incorporates themes from Umbilical cord, Cord blood and Birth cohort. His Gut flora research includes elements of Breastfeeding, Feces and Clinical significance.

His most cited work include:

  • Early infancy microbial and metabolic alterations affect risk of childhood asthma (752 citations)
  • Gut microbiota of healthy Canadian infants: profiles by mode of delivery and infant diet at 4 months (554 citations)
  • A summary of the new GINA strategy: a roadmap to asthma control (464 citations)

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

Allan B. Becker mainly focuses on Asthma, Immunology, Pediatrics, Allergy and Cohort. His studies in Asthma integrate themes in fields like Environmental health, Family medicine and Intensive care medicine. His Immunology study incorporates themes from Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Disease.

Allan B. Becker combines subjects such as Odds ratio, Logistic regression, MEDLINE and Wheeze with his study of Pediatrics. His Cohort study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Pregnancy, Demography, Physiology and Sensitization. His work carried out in the field of Gut flora brings together such families of science as Microbiome, Feces and Cohort study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Asthma (49.48%)
  • Immunology (29.43%)
  • Pediatrics (27.60%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Asthma (49.48%)
  • Breastfeeding (17.97%)
  • Cohort (14.84%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Asthma, Breastfeeding, Cohort, Physiology and Cohort study. Asthma is the subject of his research, which falls under Immunology. His study in Breastfeeding is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Pregnancy, Environmental health and Docosahexaenoic acid.

His study on Cohort also encompasses disciplines like

  • Food allergy which intersects with area such as Pediatrics and Menarche,
  • Sensitization that intertwine with fields like Odds ratio,
  • Logistic regression and related Disease, Confounding and Demography. His Physiology study which covers Gut flora that intersects with Microbiome, Colonization and Atopy. His research in Cohort study intersects with topics in Wheeze and Child Behavior Checklist.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • GINA 2019: a fundamental change in asthma management: Treatment of asthma with short-acting bronchodilators alone is no longer recommended for adults and adolescents (118 citations)
  • Screen-time is associated with inattention problems in preschoolers: Results from the CHILD birth cohort study (34 citations)
  • Integrated Analysis of Human Milk Microbiota With Oligosaccharides and Fatty Acids in the CHILD Cohort. (29 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Asthma

Allan B. Becker mostly deals with Breastfeeding, Cohort study, Environmental health, Gut flora and Bacteria. His Breastfeeding research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Docosahexaenoic acid, Breast milk and Cohort. In Cohort, Allan B. Becker works on issues like Food allergy, which are connected to Pediatrics.

His studies in Gut flora integrate themes in fields like Infant health, Physiology and Atopy. Allan B. Becker works mostly in the field of Incidence, limiting it down to concerns involving Prospective cohort study and, occasionally, Asthma. Allan B. Becker undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Asthma and Fundamental change through his research.
