Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Disease

Hans-Olov Adami focuses on Internal medicine, Cancer, Risk factor, Epidemiology and Gynecology. Hans-Olov Adami interconnects Gastroenterology, Surgery and Oncology in the investigation of issues within Internal medicine. His work carried out in the field of Cancer brings together such families of science as Immunology and Pathology.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Endocrinology, Absolute risk reduction, Case-control study and Environmental health in addition to Risk factor. Hans-Olov Adami works mostly in the field of Epidemiology, limiting it down to concerns involving Incidence and, occasionally, Demography, Mass screening, Mortality rate and Colorectal cancer. The Gynecology study combines topics in areas such as Body mass index, Cervical cancer, Obstetrics, Breast cancer and Cohort.

His most cited work include:

  • Breast cancer and hormone replacement therapy: collaborative reanalysis of data from 51 epidemiological studies of 52 705 women with breast cancer and 108 411 women without breast cancer (2099 citations)
  • Radical prostatectomy versus watchful waiting in early prostate cancer. (1702 citations)
  • Radical prostatectomy versus watchful waiting in early prostate cancer. (1702 citations)

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

Hans-Olov Adami mostly deals with Internal medicine, Cancer, Epidemiology, Breast cancer and Oncology. His work deals with themes such as Endocrinology and Surgery, which intersect with Internal medicine. His Cancer research incorporates themes from Gastroenterology and Pathology.

His Epidemiology study incorporates themes from Incidence, Environmental health, Demography, Confidence interval and Public health. His Breast cancer study which covers Gynecology that intersects with Obstetrics, Cervical cancer, Endometrial cancer, Confounding and Menopause. His study in Risk factor is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Odds ratio, Absolute risk reduction, Case-control study, Immunology and Disease.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (72.13%)
  • Cancer (45.00%)
  • Epidemiology (37.35%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (72.13%)
  • Oncology (33.31%)
  • Cancer (45.00%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Oncology, Cancer, Cohort and Epidemiology. His study looks at the relationship between Oncology and fields such as Disease, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. The concepts of his Cancer study are interwoven with issues in Twin study, Heritability, Incidence, Gastroenterology and Lower risk.

His work in Incidence addresses issues such as Relative risk, which are connected to fields such as Gynecology. The various areas that Hans-Olov Adami examines in his Cohort study include Demography, Retrospective cohort study and Ovarian cancer. His work in Epidemiology covers topics such as Public health which are related to areas like Family medicine.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Association of Leisure-Time Physical Activity With Risk of 26 Types of Cancer in 1.44 Million Adults (534 citations)
  • Association of Leisure-Time Physical Activity With Risk of 26 Types of Cancer in 1.44 Million Adults (534 citations)
  • Familial Risk and Heritability of Cancer Among Twins in Nordic Countries. (312 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Disease

Internal medicine, Oncology, Cancer, Prospective cohort study and Body mass index are his primary areas of study. His Surgery research extends to the thematically linked field of Internal medicine. His Oncology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Survival rate and Breast cancer.

His Breast cancer study combines topics in areas such as Young adult, Family history, Obstetrics and Risk factor. His research in Cancer intersects with topics in Twin study, Lower risk, Lung cancer and Gastroenterology. Hans-Olov Adami has included themes like Epidemiology and Retrospective cohort study in his Prospective cohort study study.
