Fellow of The Academy of Medical Sciences, United Kingdom

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Virus

His primary areas of investigation include Tuberculous meningitis, Meningitis, Tuberculosis, Internal medicine and Immunology. His Tuberculous meningitis study which covers Levofloxacin that intersects with Cerebrospinal fluid penetration, Antibacterial agent and Ofloxacin. His Meningitis research includes themes of Lumbar puncture, Cerebrospinal fluid, Relative risk, Intensive care medicine and Pharmacotherapy.

His studies deal with areas such as Pediatrics and Drug resistance as well as Tuberculosis. Guy Thwaites has researched Internal medicine in several fields, including Gastroenterology, Surgery and Bacteremia. Guy Thwaites combines subjects such as Disseminated disease, Genotype and Genetic predisposition with his study of Immunology.

His most cited work include:

  • Discovery, research, and development of new antibiotics: the WHO priority list of antibiotic-resistant bacteria and tuberculosis (1203 citations)
  • Dexamethasone for the treatment of tuberculous meningitis in adolescents and adults. (683 citations)
  • Out-of-Africa migration and Neolithic coexpansion of Mycobacterium tuberculosis with modern humans (648 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Tuberculous meningitis, Tuberculosis, Immunology and Virology. Guy Thwaites has included themes like Gastroenterology, Surgery and Rifampicin in his Internal medicine study. His study explores the link between Tuberculous meningitis and topics such as Intensive care medicine that cross with problems in Antibiotics.

Guy Thwaites mostly deals with Mycobacterium tuberculosis in his studies of Tuberculosis. The concepts of his Mycobacterium tuberculosis study are interwoven with issues in Drug resistance, Microbiology and Isoniazid. Immunology is often connected to Genotype in his work.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (24.95%)
  • Tuberculous meningitis (22.13%)
  • Tuberculosis (19.72%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2020-2021)?

  • Coronavirus disease 2019 (3.62%)
  • Internal medicine (24.95%)
  • Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (2.82%)

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

Guy Thwaites mainly investigates Coronavirus disease 2019, Internal medicine, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Tuberculous meningitis and Virology. His Coronavirus disease 2019 study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Retrospective cohort study, Healthcare system, Case ascertainment and Environmental health. His Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Antibody titer, Immunology, Asymptomatic, Seroprevalence and 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak.

Research on Meningitis and Tuberculosis is a part of his Tuberculous meningitis study. He combines subjects such as Inflammation, Immunopathology and Bioinformatics with his study of Tuberculosis. His Virology study combines topics in areas such as Serology and Etiology.

Between 2020 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Tocilizumab in patients admitted to hospital with COVID-19 (RECOVERY): preliminary results of a randomised, controlled, open-label, platform trial (63 citations)
  • Azithromycin in patients admitted to hospital with COVID-19 (RECOVERY): a randomised, controlled, open-label, platform trial. (22 citations)
  • The first 100 days of SARS-CoV-2 control in Vietnam. (14 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Virus

Guy Thwaites spends much of his time researching Coronavirus disease 2019, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Asymptomatic, Internal medicine and Rate ratio. His Coronavirus disease 2019 research includes elements of Environmental health, Case ascertainment and Healthcare system. His studies examine the connections between Asymptomatic and genetics, as well as such issues in 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak, with regards to Antibody response, Antibody titer, Young adult, Immunology and Immune system.

Guy Thwaites brings together Internal medicine and In patient to produce work in his papers. The study incorporates disciplines such as Survival rate, Relative risk, Pharmacotherapy, Rheumatoid arthritis and Azithromycin in addition to Rate ratio. His Mortality rate study incorporates themes from Infectious disease, Pharmacogenomics, Tuberculous meningitis and Intensive care medicine.
