Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
  • Internal medicine
  • Disease

His scientific interests lie mostly in Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Sexually transmitted disease, Immunology, Pediatrics and Incidence. His Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Randomized controlled trial, Epidemiology, Cohort study and Cohort. His Sexually transmitted disease research includes themes of Syphilis, Environmental health, Demography, Public health and Risk factor.

His Immunology course of study focuses on Cross-sectional study and Overweight and Nursing. His Pediatrics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Mortality rate and Interquartile range. His research investigates the link between Incidence and topics such as Transmission that cross with problems in Sida and Clinical research.

His most cited work include:

  • Impact of improved treatment of sexually transmitted diseases on HIV infection in rural Tanzania: randomised controlled trial (1271 citations)
  • PRO2000 vaginal gel for prevention of HIV-1 infection (Microbicides Development Programme 301): a phase 3, randomised, double-blind, parallel-group trial (276 citations)
  • Control of sexually transmitted diseases for HIV-1 prevention: understanding the implications of the Mwanza and Rakai trials. (267 citations)

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

Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Immunology, Sexually transmitted disease, Demography and Incidence are his primary areas of study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Epidemiology, Cohort study, Environmental health, Pediatrics and Cohort in addition to Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. His Immunology research incorporates elements of Young adult, Internal medicine and HIV vaccine.

Heiner Grosskurth interconnects Family medicine, Syphilis, Gynecology and Transmission in the investigation of issues within Sexually transmitted disease. His Demography study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Condom, Odds ratio, Seroprevalence and Risk factor. His studies in Incidence integrate themes in fields like Poisson regression and Confidence interval.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (47.65%)
  • Immunology (29.87%)
  • Sexually transmitted disease (22.15%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Environmental health (19.13%)
  • Internal medicine (18.46%)
  • Incidence (22.82%)

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

His main research concerns Environmental health, Internal medicine, Incidence, Demography and Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. The various areas that he examines in his Environmental health study include Cross-sectional study, Cluster randomised controlled trial, Psychological intervention and Epidemiology. His Internal medicine research integrates issues from Placebo and Immunology.

His Incidence research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Gynecology, Malaria, Poisson regression and Pediatrics. He has researched Demography in several fields, including Cohort study, Cohort, Young adult, Early onset and Prehypertension. The various areas that Heiner Grosskurth examines in his Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome study include Prospective cohort study and Logistic regression.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Preparedness of Tanzanian health facilities for outpatient primary care of hypertension and diabetes: a cross-sectional survey (121 citations)
  • High prevalence of hypertension and of risk factors for non-communicable diseases (NCDs): a population based cross-sectional survey of NCDS and HIV infection in Northwestern Tanzania and Southern Uganda (90 citations)
  • Readiness of Ugandan health services for the management of outpatients with chronic diseases. (58 citations)

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

  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
  • Internal medicine
  • Disease

His primary areas of study are Psychological intervention, Environmental health, Young adult, Internal medicine and Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test. His study in Psychological intervention is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Program evaluation, Pediatrics, Public health and Referral. His Environmental health study combines topics in areas such as Global health, Poverty and Disease.

His Young adult study deals with Immunology intersecting with Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Clinical cohort, Oncology and Prospective cohort study. The Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Placebo, Immunogenicity and Vaccination.
