Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Asthma

His main research concerns Asthma, Immunology, Internal medicine, Odds ratio and Vitamin D and neurology. Augusto A. Litonjua has included themes like Pregnancy, Pediatrics, Allergy and Risk factor in his Asthma study. His Immunology research incorporates elements of COPD, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Allele.

His Internal medicine study incorporates themes from Endocrinology and Physical therapy. His Odds ratio research includes elements of Exacerbation and Disease. The Vitamin D and neurology study combines topics in areas such as Budesonide, Vitamin, Severity of illness and Immune system.

His most cited work include:

  • Ambient Pollution and Heart Rate Variability (717 citations)
  • Maternal intake of vitamin D during pregnancy and risk of recurrent wheeze in children at 3 y of age (564 citations)
  • Rapid DNA Methylation Changes after Exposure to Traffic Particles (503 citations)

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

Augusto A. Litonjua mostly deals with Asthma, Immunology, Internal medicine, Vitamin D and neurology and Pediatrics. His Asthma study combines topics in areas such as Odds ratio, Pregnancy and Allergy. His research investigates the link between Immunology and topics such as Single-nucleotide polymorphism that cross with problems in Haplotype.

The various areas that Augusto A. Litonjua examines in his Internal medicine study include Gastroenterology, Endocrinology and Oncology. His Vitamin D and neurology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Vitamin, Gestation and Immune system. His Pediatrics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cohort and Risk factor.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Asthma (62.32%)
  • Immunology (41.82%)
  • Internal medicine (28.99%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Asthma (62.32%)
  • Vitamin D and neurology (29.40%)
  • Pregnancy (19.46%)

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

Augusto A. Litonjua mainly investigates Asthma, Vitamin D and neurology, Pregnancy, Pediatrics and Physiology. His Asthma research is classified as research in Internal medicine. His studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Immunoglobulin E, Endocrinology and Oncology.

His studies deal with areas such as Allergy, Atopy, Disease and Confidence interval as well as Vitamin D and neurology. His Pregnancy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Wheeze, Vital capacity, FEV1/FVC ratio and Cohort. His Pediatrics research includes themes of Pediatric asthma, Late pregnancy and Spirometry.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Six-Year Follow-up of a Trial of Antenatal Vitamin D for Asthma Reduction. (29 citations)
  • Asthma epidemiology and risk factors (19 citations)
  • Maternal Gestational Diabetes Mellitus and Newborn DNA Methylation: Findings From the Pregnancy and Childhood Epigenetics Consortium (17 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Cancer

His scientific interests lie mostly in Asthma, Pregnancy, Offspring, Metabolomics and Internal medicine. He conducts interdisciplinary study in the fields of Asthma and Age groups through his research. His Pregnancy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Genome-wide association study, DNA methylation, Bioinformatics, Vitamin D and neurology and Pediatrics.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Spirometry and Prenatal care. He combines subjects such as Wheeze, Body mass index, Odds ratio, FEV1/FVC ratio and Cohort with his study of Pediatrics. His work focuses on many connections between Metabolomics and other disciplines, such as Microbiome, that overlap with his field of interest in Immune system, Metabolite, Pathophysiology of asthma, Sphingolipid and Immunology.
