Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Virus
  • Immune system

Heiner Wedemeyer focuses on Immunology, Internal medicine, Virology, Gastroenterology and Hepatitis C virus. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Liver disease and Immunology. His Internal medicine course of study focuses on Viral load and Tolerability and Randomized controlled trial.

Heiner Wedemeyer has included themes like CD8 and Genotype, Hepatitis E virus in his Virology study. His Gastroenterology research focuses on subjects like Hepatitis B, which are linked to HBsAg, HBeAg, Entecavir, Lamivudine and Telbivudine. His work deals with themes such as Viral disease, Interferon and Hepatitis C, which intersect with Hepatitis C virus.

His most cited work include:

  • Association between sustained virological response and all-cause mortality among patients with chronic hepatitis C and advanced hepatic fibrosis. (1112 citations)
  • Global prevalence and genotype distribution of hepatitis C virus infection in 2015: a modelling study (981 citations)
  • ABT-450/r-Ombitasvir and Dasabuvir with Ribavirin for Hepatitis C with Cirrhosis (732 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Internal medicine, Immunology, Virology, Gastroenterology and Hepatitis C. His work investigates the relationship between Internal medicine and topics such as Ribavirin that intersect with problems in Alpha interferon. His Virology research incorporates elements of Genotype and Hepatitis E virus.

His Gastroenterology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Chronic hepatitis, Liver transplantation, Surgery, Fibrosis and Entecavir. Heiner Wedemeyer combines subjects such as Viral disease, Sofosbuvir and Hepatitis C virus with his study of Hepatitis C. His Cirrhosis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Hepatocellular carcinoma and Cohort.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (46.42%)
  • Immunology (36.72%)
  • Virology (34.48%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (46.42%)
  • Gastroenterology (29.40%)
  • Cirrhosis (15.82%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Gastroenterology, Cirrhosis, Hepatitis C and Virology. Heiner Wedemeyer usually deals with Internal medicine and limits it to topics linked to Hepatitis B virus and Hepatitis B and Genotype. His study focuses on the intersection of Gastroenterology and fields such as Odds ratio with connections in the field of Programmed cell death and Interferon.

His research in Hepatitis C intersects with topics in Epidemiology, Virus, Hepatitis C virus, Regimen and Sofosbuvir. His Virus study is associated with Immunology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including RNA and Hepatitis E virus.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • EASL recommendations on treatment of hepatitis C: Final update of the series ☆ (66 citations)
  • Guidance for design and endpoints of clinical trials in chronic hepatitis B - Report from the 2019 EASL-AASLD HBV Treatment Endpoints Conference‡ (44 citations)
  • Safety and immunogenicity of the therapeutic vaccine TG1050 in chronic hepatitis B patients: a phase 1b placebo-controlled trial. (11 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Virus
  • Cancer

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Gastroenterology, Virology, Cirrhosis and In patient. His studies deal with areas such as Pibrentasvir and Glecaprevir as well as Internal medicine. In the field of Gastroenterology, his study on Liver disease overlaps with subjects such as Eculizumab.

His research links RNA with Virology. His Cirrhosis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Hepatocellular carcinoma, Liver transplantation and Cohort. His Autoimmune hepatitis study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Immunology.
