Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Disease

Jürg Utzinger spends much of his time researching Schistosomiasis, Immunology, Environmental health, Helminthiasis and Veterinary medicine. His Schistosomiasis study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Artemether. Jürg Utzinger has included themes like Sanitation, Epidemiology and Global health, Public health, Neglected tropical diseases in his Environmental health study.

In his research, Disease burden and Global strategy is intimately related to Soil-transmitted helminthiasis, which falls under the overarching field of Helminthiasis. He interconnects Blastocystis, Helminths, Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura and Transmission in the investigation of issues within Veterinary medicine. Jürg Utzinger combines subjects such as Trichuriasis, Gastroenterology, Deworming, Trichuris and Internal medicine with his study of Trichuris trichiura.

His most cited work include:

  • Schistosomiasis and water resources development: systematic review, meta-analysis, and estimates of people at risk (1557 citations)
  • Efficacy of Current Drugs Against Soil-Transmitted Helminth Infections: Systematic Review and Meta-analysis (610 citations)
  • The Global Burden of Disease Study 2010: Interpretation and Implications for the Neglected Tropical Diseases (592 citations)

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

Environmental health, Schistosomiasis, Veterinary medicine, Immunology and Public health are his primary areas of study. The concepts of his Environmental health study are interwoven with issues in Sanitation, Epidemiology, Cross-sectional study, Malaria and Helminthiasis. Jürg Utzinger works mostly in the field of Schistosomiasis, limiting it down to topics relating to Internal medicine and, in certain cases, Surgery and Albendazole, as a part of the same area of interest.

His Veterinary medicine research incorporates themes from Trichuris, Helminths, Ascaris lumbricoides and Trichuris trichiura. His Immunology study incorporates themes from Feces and Parasitology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Psychological intervention and Pediatrics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental health (52.10%)
  • Schistosomiasis (38.42%)
  • Veterinary medicine (29.72%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Environmental health (52.10%)
  • Public health (26.00%)
  • Schistosomiasis (38.42%)

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

Jürg Utzinger spends much of his time researching Environmental health, Public health, Schistosomiasis, Psychological intervention and Helminths. His Environmental health research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Credible interval, Cross-sectional study, Malaria, Health impact assessment and Socioeconomic status. His biological study deals with issues like Sanitation, which deal with fields such as Hygiene and Malnutrition.

His Schistosomiasis study which covers Mass drug administration that intersects with Operations research and Lymphatic filariasis. His Psychological intervention research integrates issues from Randomized controlled trial and Behavior change. His work in Schistosoma haematobium covers topics such as Internal medicine which are related to areas like Gastroenterology and Trichuris trichiura.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Evaluation of integrated interventions layered on mass drug administration for urogenital schistosomiasis elimination: a cluster-randomised trial. (28 citations)
  • Evaluation of integrated interventions layered on mass drug administration for urogenital schistosomiasis elimination: a cluster-randomised trial. (28 citations)
  • Asian schistosomiasis: current status and prospects for control leading to elimination (28 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Disease

His scientific interests lie mostly in Environmental health, Mass drug administration, Schistosomiasis, Public health and Neglected tropical diseases. He has researched Environmental health in several fields, including Natural resource, Social impact assessment, Health promotion, Health impact assessment and Helminthiasis. His research in Helminthiasis intersects with topics in Soil-transmitted helminth and Hygiene.

His Schistosomiasis research includes elements of Psychological intervention and Tropical disease. His Neglected tropical diseases research incorporates elements of Global health, Sanitation and Control. His study on Praziquantel also encompasses disciplines like

  • Internal medicine which connect with Cross-sectional study and Malaria,
  • Odds ratio that intertwine with fields like Epidemiology.
