Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome

Graeme Meintjes focuses on Immunology, Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome, Internal medicine, Tuberculosis and Meningitis. His Immunology research integrates issues from Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and Antiretroviral therapy. His research investigates the connection with Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome and areas like Inflammation which intersect with concerns in CD14 and Myeloid.

The various areas that Graeme Meintjes examines in his Internal medicine study include Gastroenterology and Point of care. His Tuberculosis research focuses on Retrospective cohort study and how it relates to Medical microbiology and Etiology. His Meningitis research incorporates elements of Amphotericin B, Fluconazole, Cerebrospinal fluid and Cryptococcosis.

His most cited work include:

  • Tuberculosis-associated immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome: case definitions for use in resource-limited settings. (512 citations)
  • Timing of antiretroviral therapy after diagnosis of cryptococcal meningitis (275 citations)
  • Timing of antiretroviral therapy after diagnosis of cryptococcal meningitis (275 citations)

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

Tuberculosis, Immunology, Internal medicine, Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome and Intensive care medicine are his primary areas of study. Graeme Meintjes has researched Tuberculosis in several fields, including Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Pediatrics and Disease. His Internal medicine study incorporates themes from Meningitis, Surgery and Gastroenterology.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Cryptococcus, Amphotericin B, Fluconazole and Cerebrospinal fluid in addition to Meningitis. Graeme Meintjes interconnects Pathogenesis, Randomized controlled trial, Pharmacotherapy, Prednisone and Innate immune system in the investigation of issues within Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome. He has included themes like Cryptococcal meningitis, Clinical trial, AIDS-Related Opportunistic Infections and Antiretroviral therapy in his Intensive care medicine study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Tuberculosis (52.61%)
  • Immunology (48.39%)
  • Internal medicine (39.70%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (39.70%)
  • Tuberculosis (52.61%)
  • Meningitis (18.36%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Tuberculosis, Meningitis, Immunology and Intensive care medicine. In the field of Internal medicine, his study on Regimen, Confidence interval, Clinical trial and Prospective cohort study overlaps with subjects such as In patient. Tuberculosis and Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome are commonly linked in his work.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Innate immune system and Prednisone. His study in Meningitis is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cryptococcus, Fluconazole, Cerebrospinal fluid and Cryptococcosis. His research in Intensive care medicine intersects with topics in Disease and Antiretroviral therapy.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Effect of bedaquiline on mortality in South African patients with drug-resistant tuberculosis: a retrospective cohort study (93 citations)
  • Benefits and risks of rapid initiation of antiretroviral therapy. (83 citations)
  • Novel lipoarabinomannan point-of-care tuberculosis test for people with HIV: a diagnostic accuracy study. (70 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome

His scientific interests lie mostly in Tuberculosis, Internal medicine, Intensive care medicine, Meningitis and Fluconazole. His studies deal with areas such as Randomized controlled trial, Disease, Immunology and Hazard ratio as well as Tuberculosis. His Immunology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Pathological and Mycobacterium.

The Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Bedaquiline and Lipoarabinomannan. His Intensive care medicine study also includes

  • Introductory Journal Article, Cryptococcal meningitis, Cost of illness and Pediatrics most often made with reference to Antiretroviral therapy,
  • Hiv disease which connect with Cohort study, Cross-sectional study, Cohort and Viremia. His Meningitis study combines topics in areas such as Cryptococcus neoformans, Microbiology, Multilocus sequence typing, Genotype and In vivo.
