Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Pathology

His primary areas of investigation include Pediatrics, Malnutrition, Incidence, Malaria and Epidemiology. His Pediatrics study combines topics in areas such as Odds ratio, Prospective cohort study, Case fatality rate and Cohort study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Mortality rate, Wasting, Severity of illness and Intensive care medicine.

His Intensive care medicine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Psychological intervention, Sanitation and Pneumonia. His research integrates issues of Bacteremia, Coma and Bacterial disease in his study of Incidence. His Malaria research includes themes of Tropical medicine and Disease.

His most cited work include:

  • Bacteremia among Children Admitted to a Rural Hospital in Kenya (697 citations)
  • Global burden of respiratory infections due to seasonal influenza in young children: a systematic review and meta-analysis (599 citations)
  • A Mal functional variant is associated with protection against invasive pneumococcal disease, bacteremia, malaria and tuberculosis. (397 citations)

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

Pediatrics, Malnutrition, Severe Acute Malnutrition, Malaria and Intensive care medicine are his primary areas of study. He combines subjects such as Incidence, Cohort study, Pneumonia, Prospective cohort study and Anthropometry with his study of Pediatrics. His Incidence study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Bacteremia and Epidemiology.

His studies deal with areas such as Psychological intervention, Wasting and Environmental health as well as Malnutrition. In his study, Adverse effect is inextricably linked to Randomized controlled trial, which falls within the broad field of Severe Acute Malnutrition. James A. Berkley interconnects Tropical medicine and Confidence interval in the investigation of issues within Malaria.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Pediatrics (58.79%)
  • Malnutrition (47.24%)
  • Severe Acute Malnutrition (28.39%)

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

  • Malnutrition (47.24%)
  • Pediatrics (58.79%)
  • Internal medicine (20.10%)

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

His main research concerns Malnutrition, Pediatrics, Internal medicine, Psychological intervention and Cohort. His Malnutrition research includes elements of Retrospective cohort study and Environmental health. James A. Berkley works on Pediatrics which deals in particular with Meningitis.

His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Gastroenterology, Malaria and Fosfomycin. His studies in Psychological intervention integrate themes in fields like Sanitation, Public hospital, Rotavirus, Health policy and Breastfeeding. His Cohort research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Excess mortality, Mortality rate, Gestational age and Cohort study.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Antimicrobial Resistance Following Azithromycin Mass Drug Administration: Potential Surveillance Strategies to Assess Public Health Impact (10 citations)
  • Antimicrobial Resistance Following Azithromycin Mass Drug Administration: Potential Surveillance Strategies to Assess Public Health Impact (10 citations)
  • Estimating the burden of iron deficiency among African children. (9 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Pathology

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Public health, Breastfeeding, Psychological intervention, Intensive care medicine and Hygiene. His study in the field of Health services research and Health policy also crosses realms of Agency and Vulnerability. His Breastfeeding study is associated with Pediatrics.

His Psychological intervention study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Sanitation, Rotavirus vaccine, Rotavirus and Disease. As a part of the same scientific family, James A. Berkley mostly works in the field of Intensive care medicine, focusing on Antibiotic resistance and, on occasion, Randomized controlled trial. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Randomized controlled trial, Internal medicine is strongly linked to Malaria vaccine.
