Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Bacteria
  • Tuberculosis

Mark P. Nicol mainly focuses on Tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Internal medicine, Sputum and Immunology. His Tuberculosis research incorporates themes from Surgery, Drug resistance and Intensive care medicine. His Surgery study combines topics in areas such as Test and Clinical trial.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Genetics, Immune system, Virology, Real-time polymerase chain reaction and Virulence in addition to Mycobacterium tuberculosis. His Internal medicine study which covers Pulmonary tuberculosis that intersects with Laboratory service. The concepts of his Sputum study are interwoven with issues in Nucleic acid amplification technique, Randomized controlled trial, Rifampicin and Microbiology.

His most cited work include:

  • Rapid molecular detection of tuberculosis and rifampin resistance. (1602 citations)
  • Variable host-pathogen compatibility in Mycobacterium tuberculosis. (781 citations)
  • Feasibility, diagnostic accuracy, and effectiveness of decentralised use of the Xpert MTB/RIF test for diagnosis of tuberculosis and multidrug resistance: a multicentre implementation study (737 citations)

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

Mark P. Nicol mainly investigates Tuberculosis, Internal medicine, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Sputum and Immunology. His work in Tuberculosis tackles topics such as Prospective cohort study which are related to areas like Disease. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Carriage and Pulmonary tuberculosis.

His work deals with themes such as Rifampicin, Virology, Drug resistance, Microbiology and Intensive care medicine, which intersect with Mycobacterium tuberculosis. His study in Virology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both GeneXpert MTB/RIF and Virulence. His study connects Tuberculin and Immunology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Tuberculosis (73.65%)
  • Internal medicine (52.06%)
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis (34.29%)

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

  • Tuberculosis (73.65%)
  • Internal medicine (52.06%)
  • Lipoarabinomannan (12.06%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Tuberculosis, Internal medicine, Lipoarabinomannan, Prospective cohort study and Sputum. His Tuberculosis research integrates issues from Diagnostic accuracy, Clinical trial and MEDLINE. His research on Internal medicine frequently links to adjacent areas such as Gastroenterology.

His Lipoarabinomannan research incorporates elements of Test, Tuberculous meningitis, Pre- and post-test probability, Urine and Urinary system. The various areas that Mark P. Nicol examines in his Prospective cohort study study include Pulmonary tuberculosis and Disease. The Mycobacterium tuberculosis study combines topics in areas such as Whole genome sequencing and Host immunity.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Multicenter Study of the Accuracy of the BD MAX Multidrug-resistant Tuberculosis Assay for Detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis Complex and Mutations Associated With Resistance to Rifampin and Isoniazid. (16 citations)
  • Multicenter Study of the Accuracy of the BD MAX Multidrug-resistant Tuberculosis Assay for Detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis Complex and Mutations Associated With Resistance to Rifampin and Isoniazid. (16 citations)
  • Diagnostic accuracy of a novel tuberculosis point-of-care urine lipoarabinomannan assay for people living with HIV: A meta-analysis of individual in- and outpatient data. (15 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Bacteria
  • Disease

His primary scientific interests are in Tuberculosis, Internal medicine, Lipoarabinomannan, Urine and Sputum. His Tuberculosis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Clinical trial and Disease. His Internal medicine study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Multiple drug resistance, Gastroenterology, Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Isoniazid.

His research in Lipoarabinomannan intersects with topics in Urine testing, Hiv patients, Urinary system, Disease burden and Malnutrition. His Urine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Diagnostic accuracy, Point-of-care testing and Confidence interval. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Urinalysis, Prospective cohort study, Pre- and post-test probability, Meta-analysis and Point of care.
