Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Tuberculosis
  • Disease

Dick Menzies spends much of his time researching Tuberculosis, Internal medicine, Surgery, Immunology and Meta-analysis. His Tuberculosis research includes themes of Incidence and Drug resistance. The Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Serology, Rifampicin and Isoniazid.

His Surgery research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Pyrazinamide, Adverse effect and Ethambutol. His work in Immunology tackles topics such as Predictive value of tests which are related to areas like Forest plot. His Meta-analysis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Receiver operating characteristic, Pharmacotherapy, Lost to follow-up and Clinical trial.

His most cited work include:

  • Systematic review: T-cell-based assays for the diagnosis of latent tuberculosis infection: an update. (1090 citations)
  • Meta-analysis: new tests for the diagnosis of latent tuberculosis infection: areas of uncertainty and recommendations for research. (883 citations)
  • Incidence of Serious Side Effects from First-Line Antituberculosis Drugs among Patients Treated for Active Tuberculosis (583 citations)

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

Dick Menzies mostly deals with Tuberculosis, Internal medicine, Latent tuberculosis, Surgery and Tuberculin. Mycobacterium tuberculosis is the focus of his Tuberculosis research. He combines subjects such as Rifampicin and Isoniazid with his study of Internal medicine.

His Latent tuberculosis research includes elements of Clinical trial, Health care and Family medicine. Dick Menzies has included themes like Pyrazinamide, Ethambutol, Cohort study, Confidence interval and Pharmacotherapy in his Surgery study. The various areas that Dick Menzies examines in his Tuberculin study include Skin test, Mass screening, Epidemiology and Vaccination.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Tuberculosis (85.64%)
  • Internal medicine (37.62%)
  • Latent tuberculosis (24.50%)

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

  • Tuberculosis (85.64%)
  • Internal medicine (37.62%)
  • Latent tuberculosis (24.50%)

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

His main research concerns Tuberculosis, Internal medicine, Latent tuberculosis, Meta-analysis and Family medicine. His Tuberculosis research incorporates elements of Multiple drug resistance, Incidence, Regimen, Intensive care medicine and Disease. His research in Internal medicine focuses on subjects like Isoniazid, which are connected to Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Rifampicin.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Clinical trial, Intention-to-treat analysis, Health care, Environmental health and Tuberculin in addition to Latent tuberculosis. His work deals with themes such as Observational study, Systematic review, Interferon gamma release assay and Confidence interval, which intersect with Meta-analysis. His Family medicine research incorporates themes from Psychological intervention, Intervention and Public health.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Diagnostic accuracy of serological tests for covid-19: systematic review and meta-analysis. (313 citations)
  • Diagnostic accuracy of serological tests for covid-19: systematic review and meta-analysis. (313 citations)
  • Treatment of Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis. An Official ATS/CDC/ERS/IDSA Clinical Practice Guideline (88 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Tuberculosis

His scientific interests lie mostly in Tuberculosis, Internal medicine, Latent tuberculosis, Meta-analysis and Regimen. His Tuberculosis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Machine learning and Causal inference. He interconnects Percentage point and Levofloxacin in the investigation of issues within Internal medicine.

His work carried out in the field of Latent tuberculosis brings together such families of science as Clinical trial, Incidence, Isoniazid, Protocol and Public health. His research in Meta-analysis intersects with topics in Transmission risks and rates, Asymptomatic and Confidence interval. His Regimen study incorporates themes from Receiver operating characteristic, Propensity score matching, Disease and Intensive care medicine.
