Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Bruce R. Bacon mainly focuses on Internal medicine, Gastroenterology, Hemochromatosis, Hereditary hemochromatosis and Endocrinology. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Interferon and Immunology. Bruce R. Bacon combines subjects such as Liver biopsy, Hepatitis C, Pathology, Alpha interferon and Ribavirin with his study of Gastroenterology.

The Pathology study which covers Steatosis that intersects with Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. His Hemochromatosis research incorporates elements of Mutation, Hepatic iron index, Transferrin saturation and Family medicine. His research integrates issues of Transferrin receptor, Transferrin, Hereditary Hemochromatosis Protein, HFE Protein and Molecular biology in his study of Hereditary hemochromatosis.

His most cited work include:

  • A novel MHC class I–like gene is mutated in patients with hereditary haemochromatosis (3252 citations)
  • Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis: a proposal for grading and staging the histological lesions (2947 citations)
  • Boceprevir for Previously Treated Chronic HCV Genotype 1 Infection (1435 citations)

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

Internal medicine, Gastroenterology, Hemochromatosis, Hereditary hemochromatosis and Pathology are his primary areas of study. His studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Endocrinology, Ribavirin and Immunology. His Gastroenterology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Liver biopsy, Chronic hepatitis, Boceprevir and Surgery.

His Hemochromatosis research incorporates themes from Transferrin, Transferrin saturation and Hepcidin. His Hereditary hemochromatosis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Mutation, HFE Protein, Molecular biology, Transferrin receptor and Phlebotomy. Bruce R. Bacon studies Pathology, namely Fibrosis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (56.00%)
  • Gastroenterology (31.24%)
  • Hemochromatosis (17.90%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (56.00%)
  • Gastroenterology (31.24%)
  • Ribavirin (12.76%)

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

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Gastroenterology, Ribavirin, Hepatitis C and Genotype. In his work, he performs multidisciplinary research in Internal medicine and In patient. His work on Cirrhosis is typically connected to Primary as part of general Gastroenterology study, connecting several disciplines of science.

His Cirrhosis study combines topics in areas such as Odds ratio, Liver biopsy, Transient elastography and Fibrosis. His research in Hepatitis C tackles topics such as Cohort which are related to areas like Cohort study. His work deals with themes such as Ledipasvir and Peginterferon alfa-2b, which intersect with Surgery.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • International genome-wide meta-analysis identifies new primary biliary cirrhosis risk loci and targetable pathogenic pathways (172 citations)
  • Factors That Predict Response of Patients With Hepatitis C Virus Infection to Boceprevir (168 citations)
  • Immunochip analyses identify a novel risk locus for primary biliary cirrhosis at 13q14, multiple independent associations at four established risk loci and epistasis between 1p31 and 7q32 risk variants (112 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Bruce R. Bacon focuses on Internal medicine, Gastroenterology, Ribavirin, Hepatitis C and Boceprevir. His biological study focuses on Clinical trial. Bruce R. Bacon works on Gastroenterology which deals in particular with Cirrhosis.

He has included themes like Global health, Retrospective cohort study and MEDLINE in his Hepatitis C study. The Boceprevir study combines topics in areas such as Neutropenia, Anemia, Combination therapy and Viral load. His work on Alpha interferon as part of general Immunology study is frequently linked to In patient, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.
