Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Erika von Mutius mainly investigates Asthma, Immunology, Allergy, Atopy and Pediatrics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Odds ratio, Epidemiology and Environmental health in addition to Asthma. Her research in Immunology focuses on subjects like Environmental exposure, which are connected to Acquired immune system.

The various areas that Erika von Mutius examines in her Allergy study include Pregnancy, El Niño, Immunity and Risk factor. She combines subjects such as Atopic dermatitis, Disease and Sensitization with her study of Atopy. Her work in Pediatrics addresses subjects such as Cohort study, which are connected to disciplines such as Common cold, Respiratory tract infections, Natural history and Allergists.

Her most cited work include:

  • Environmental exposure to endotoxin and its relation to asthma in school-age children. (1575 citations)
  • A large-scale, consortium-based genomewide association study of asthma. (1487 citations)
  • The asthma epidemic. (1356 citations)

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

Her main research concerns Asthma, Immunology, Allergy, Pediatrics and Atopy. Erika von Mutius interconnects Odds ratio, Disease and Environmental health in the investigation of issues within Asthma. Her Odds ratio research includes elements of Logistic regression and Confidence interval.

Her studies in Immunology integrate themes in fields like Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Environmental exposure. Her research investigates the connection with Allergy and areas like Atopic dermatitis which intersect with concerns in Food allergy. Her research in Pediatrics intersects with topics in Cross-sectional study, Cohort study, Public health and Risk factor.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Asthma (55.56%)
  • Immunology (39.46%)
  • Allergy (31.52%)

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

  • Asthma (55.56%)
  • Allergy (31.52%)
  • Environmental health (13.38%)

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

Her primary areas of investigation include Asthma, Allergy, Environmental health, Atopy and Cohort. Her Asthma study incorporates themes from Odds ratio, Disease and Pediatrics. Her Allergy research integrates issues from Logistic regression, Epidemiology, Immune system and Atopic dermatitis.

Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Microbiome, High prevalence, Agriculture, Farming environment and Cross-sectional study. Her Atopy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Abundance, Cytotoxic T cell, Innate immune system, Physiology and FOXP3. Specifically, her work in Immunology is concerned with the study of Immunoglobulin E.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • High levels of butyrate and propionate in early life are associated with protection against atopy. (119 citations)
  • Farm-like indoor microbiota in non-farm homes protects children from asthma development. (103 citations)
  • High levels of butyrate and propionate in early life are associated with protection against atopy (42 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Erika von Mutius spends much of her time researching Asthma, Atopy, Allergy, Environmental health and Odds ratio. Erika von Mutius studies Wheeze which is a part of Asthma. Her Atopy study improves the overall literature in Immunology.

Her work deals with themes such as Microbiome, Feces and Physiology, which intersect with Allergy. Her Environmental health research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Latent class model, Allergic sensitization and Published Erratum, MEDLINE. Her biological study deals with issues like Confidence interval, which deal with fields such as Cross-sectional study, Young adult, Respiratory sounds, Housekeeping and Lung function.
