Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
  • Disease

His primary areas of study are Immunology, Internal medicine, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Cohort study and Virology. His is doing research in Viral load, Viral disease, T cell, Hepatitis C virus and Immune system, both of which are found in Immunology. Manuel Battegay has researched Internal medicine in several fields, including Gastroenterology, Surgery and Ritonavir.

His research in Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome tackles topics such as Risk factor which are related to areas like Physical therapy. His Cohort study research includes elements of Epidemiology, Confidence interval, Antiretroviral therapy, Prospective cohort study and Cohort. His Virology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Epitope, Antibody, CTL* and Lymphocytic choriomeningitis.

His most cited work include:

  • Circulating microRNAs in sera correlate with soluble biomarkers of immune activation but do not predict mortality in ART treated individuals with HIV-1 infection : a case control study (2421 citations)
  • Life expectancy of individuals on combination antiretroviral therapy in high-income countries: a collaborative analysis of 14 cohort studies (1227 citations)
  • Genetic Variation in IL28B Is Associated With Chronic Hepatitis C and Treatment Failure: A Genome-Wide Association Study (1019 citations)

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

Manuel Battegay mainly investigates Internal medicine, Immunology, Cohort study, Virology and Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. His research links Gastroenterology with Internal medicine. His study in Viral load, Viral disease, Immune system, Immunopathology and Hepatitis C virus is carried out as part of his studies in Immunology.

His work deals with themes such as Odds ratio, Incidence, Surgery, Antiretroviral therapy and Pediatrics, which intersect with Cohort study. The Virology study combines topics in areas such as Antibody and Antigen. His research in the fields of Sida overlaps with other disciplines such as Cart.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (39.58%)
  • Immunology (29.44%)
  • Cohort study (23.10%)

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

  • Internal medicine (39.58%)
  • Cohort study (23.10%)
  • Confidence interval (10.70%)

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

Manuel Battegay mostly deals with Internal medicine, Cohort study, Confidence interval, Viral load and Epidemiology. His research on Internal medicine often connects related topics like Gastroenterology. His Cohort study research also works with subjects such as

  • Oncology, which have a strong connection to Dosing,
  • Men who have sex with men and related Incidence.

His study in Confidence interval is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Odds ratio and Physiologically based pharmacokinetic modelling. Viral load is a subfield of Immunology that Manuel Battegay explores. His Epidemiology research incorporates elements of Virology and Environmental health.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Risk of HIV transmission through condomless sex in serodifferent gay couples with the HIV-positive partner taking suppressive antiretroviral therapy (PARTNER): final results of a multicentre, prospective, observational study (249 citations)
  • COVID-19 epidemic in Switzerland: on the importance of testing, contact tracing and isolation. (218 citations)
  • 2019-novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV): estimating the case fatality rate - a word of caution. (93 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Pharmacokinetics, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Coronavirus disease 2019 and Confidence interval. His research integrates issues of Gastroenterology and Tuberculosis in his study of Internal medicine. Manuel Battegay combines subjects such as Virology, Public health surveillance, Contact tracing, Mass screening and Pandemic with his study of Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2.

His studies examine the connections between Coronavirus disease 2019 and genetics, as well as such issues in 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak, with regards to Ritonavir, Drug, Lopinavir, Lopinavir/ritonavir and Mortality trends. The study incorporates disciplines such as Observational study, Proportional hazards model and Infection control in addition to Confidence interval. His Hazard ratio study which covers Incidence that intersects with Epidemiology.
