Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Erik Melén spends much of his time researching Asthma, Immunology, Pediatrics, Allergy and Genome-wide association study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Disease, Incidence, CpG site and Comorbidity. His Immunology research incorporates themes from Biomarker, Transcriptome, Methylation and DNA methylation.

His Pediatrics research includes elements of Odds ratio, Cohort study, Environmental exposure, Environmental health and Prospective cohort study. His Allergy study combines topics in areas such as Immunoglobulin E, El Niño and Tobacco smoke. He interconnects Genetic association and Atopic dermatitis in the investigation of issues within Genome-wide association study.

His most cited work include:

  • DNA Methylation in Newborns and Maternal Smoking in Pregnancy: Genome-wide Consortium Meta-analysis (419 citations)
  • DNA Methylation in Newborns and Maternal Smoking in Pregnancy: Genome-wide Consortium Meta-analysis (419 citations)
  • Allergic Rhinitis and its Impact on Asthma (ARIA): Achievements in 10 years and future needs (384 citations)

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

Erik Melén mainly focuses on Asthma, Immunology, Pediatrics, Allergy and Single-nucleotide polymorphism. The Asthma study combines topics in areas such as Odds ratio, DNA methylation, Disease, Sensitization and Cohort. His Immunology study incorporates themes from Epigenetics and Gene.

He usually deals with Epigenetics and limits it to topics linked to Pregnancy and Body mass index. His Pediatrics research also works with subjects such as

  • FEV1/FVC ratio and Epidemiology most often made with reference to Spirometry,
  • Environmental health most often made with reference to Birth cohort. His study with Single-nucleotide polymorphism involves better knowledge in Genetics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Asthma (83.83%)
  • Immunology (60.08%)
  • Pediatrics (36.93%)

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

  • Asthma (83.83%)
  • Immunology (60.08%)
  • Cohort (24.35%)

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

Erik Melén focuses on Asthma, Immunology, Cohort, Allergy and DNA methylation. His study in Asthma is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Disease, Pediatrics and Family medicine. His studies in Immunology integrate themes in fields like Genome-wide association study, Gene and Transient receptor potential channel.

His Allergy research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Atopic dermatitis, Immunoglobulin E and Sensitization. The various areas that Erik Melén examines in his DNA methylation study include Epigenetics and Genetic association. His Methylation study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Single-nucleotide polymorphism and CpG site.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Next-generation Allergic Rhinitis and Its Impact on Asthma (ARIA) guidelines for allergic rhinitis based on Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) and real-world evidence (48 citations)
  • Handling of allergen immunotherapy in the COVID-19 pandemic: An ARIA-EAACI statement. (37 citations)
  • Paediatric COVID-19 admissions in a region with open schools during the two first months of the pandemic. (19 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Allergy, Cohort, Asthma, DNA methylation and Allergen are his primary areas of study. His Allergy study improves the overall literature in Immunology. His Atopic dermatitis study, which is part of a larger body of work in Immunology, is frequently linked to Interleukin 5 receptor alpha subunit, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His studies deal with areas such as FEV1/FVC ratio and Confounding as well as Cohort. His work carried out in the field of Asthma brings together such families of science as Disease, MEDLINE and Family medicine. Erik Melén combines subjects such as Epigenetics, Physiology and Genetic architecture with his study of DNA methylation.
