Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Disease

His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Odds ratio, Cancer, Case-control study and Risk factor. His research integrates issues of Gastroenterology and Surgery in his study of Internal medicine. His Odds ratio research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Body mass index, Immunology, Micronutrient, Red meat and Family history.

His study looks at the intersection of Cancer and topics like Oncology with Pathology. The Case-control study study combines topics in areas such as Food group, Quartile, Ovarian cancer, Prostate cancer and Confounding. His studies in Risk factor integrate themes in fields like Endocrinology, Absolute risk reduction, Urinary bladder, Gynecology and Endometrial cancer.

His most cited work include:

  • Alcohol Drinking in Never Users of Tobacco, Cigarette Smoking in Never Drinkers, and the Risk of Head and Neck Cancer: Pooled Analysis in the International Head and Neck Cancer Epidemiology Consortium (697 citations)
  • Autoimmune disorders and risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma subtypes: a pooled analysis within the InterLymph Consortium. (422 citations)
  • Worldwide trends in gastric cancer mortality (1980–2011), with predictions to 2015, and incidence by subtype (388 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Odds ratio, Case-control study, Cancer and Epidemiology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Gastroenterology, Surgery and Oncology. His Odds ratio research integrates issues from Body mass index, Endocrinology, Logistic regression, Confidence interval and Family history.

His work deals with themes such as Diabetes mellitus, Food group, Quartile, Myocardial infarction and Confounding, which intersect with Case-control study. His Cancer study combines topics in areas such as Mortality rate, Lung cancer and Rectum. Carlo La Vecchia has researched Epidemiology in several fields, including Head and neck cancer, Incidence, Public health and Environmental health.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (70.73%)
  • Odds ratio (49.13%)
  • Case-control study (48.78%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (70.73%)
  • Cancer (42.39%)
  • Odds ratio (49.13%)

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

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Cancer, Odds ratio, Case-control study and Confidence interval. The Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Gastroenterology and Oncology. His Cancer research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Relative risk and Pathology.

His studies in Odds ratio integrate themes in fields like Body mass index, Logistic regression, Quartile, Family history and Confounding. The concepts of his Case-control study study are interwoven with issues in Bladder cancer, Surgery, Incidence, Young adult and Risk factor. Carlo La Vecchia interconnects Meta-analysis and Endometrial cancer in the investigation of issues within Confidence interval.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global, regional, and national cancer incidence, mortality, years of life lost, years lived with disability, and disability-adjusted life-years for 29 cancer groups, 1990 to 2017 (347 citations)
  • Global trends and predictions in hepatocellular carcinoma mortality (281 citations)
  • Prediction of acute myeloid leukaemia risk in healthy individuals (274 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Disease

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Case-control study, Cancer, Odds ratio and Confidence interval. His studies deal with areas such as Gastroenterology, Surgery and Oncology as well as Internal medicine. His Case-control study study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Epidemiology, Incidence, Young adult, Quartile and Risk factor.

His Cancer research incorporates themes from Mediterranean diet and Pathology. His Odds ratio study incorporates themes from Body mass index, Logistic regression, Diabetes mellitus, Type 2 diabetes and Colorectal cancer. His Confidence interval research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Lung cancer and Mouth neoplasm.
