Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Cancer

His primary areas of investigation include Global health, Demography, Years of potential life lost, Mortality rate and Life expectancy. His Global health study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Verbal autopsy, Cause of death, Incidence, Environmental health and Disease burden. His studies deal with areas such as Fertility, Birth rate, Gerontology, Scale and Millennium Development Goals as well as Demography.

His Years of potential life lost research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Disability-adjusted life year, Breast cancer, Population health and Risk factor. He has researched Mortality rate in several fields, including Epidemiology, Disease and Child mortality. His work carried out in the field of Life expectancy brings together such families of science as Communicable disease and Epidemiological transition.

His most cited work include:

  • Global, regional, and national prevalence of overweight and obesity in children and adults during 1980–2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (6893 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 301 acute and chronic diseases and injuries in 188 countries, 1990-2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (6156 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national comparative risk assessment of 79 behavioural, environmental and occupational, and metabolic risks or clusters of risks in 188 countries, 1990-2013: A systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (4452 citations)

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

Paulo A. Lotufo mostly deals with Internal medicine, Longitudinal study, Demography, Cardiology and Gerontology. His research integrates issues of Diabetes mellitus and Endocrinology in his study of Internal medicine. His study in Longitudinal study is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cross-sectional study, Cohort study, Cohort and Confidence interval.

His Demography research includes themes of Global health, Life expectancy, Years of potential life lost and Epidemiology. His work on Stroke expands to the thematically related Epidemiology. His work deals with themes such as Disease and Cause of death, which intersect with Mortality rate.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (36.29%)
  • Longitudinal study (23.74%)
  • Demography (17.33%)

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

  • Internal medicine (36.29%)
  • Longitudinal study (23.74%)
  • Demography (17.33%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Longitudinal study, Demography, Cohort and Diabetes mellitus. Paulo A. Lotufo combines subjects such as Endocrinology and Cardiology with his study of Internal medicine. His Longitudinal study research incorporates elements of Odds ratio, Incidence, Cross-sectional study and Confidence interval.

The various areas that Paulo A. Lotufo examines in his Demography study include Global health, Life expectancy, Years of potential life lost and Epidemiology. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Life expectancy, Disease burden is strongly linked to Population health. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Years of potential life lost, concentrating on Public health and intersecting with Malnutrition and Relative risk.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global, regional, and national burden of chronic kidney disease, 1990–2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (401 citations)
  • Global burden of 369 diseases and injuries in 204 countries and territories, 1990–2019: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (224 citations)
  • Global burden of 369 diseases and injuries in 204 countries and territories, 1990–2019: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (224 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Diabetes mellitus

Paulo A. Lotufo mainly investigates Internal medicine, Demography, Years of potential life lost, Mortality rate and Risk factor. His research investigates the connection between Internal medicine and topics such as Gastroenterology that intersect with issues in Obesity. His Demography study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Life expectancy, Anthropometry, Sample size determination and Nomogram.

The concepts of his Years of potential life lost study are interwoven with issues in Viral hepatitis, Hepatitis B and Public health. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cirrhosis, Hepatitis C, Disease, Cause of death and Global health. As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Risk factor, focusing on Environmental health and, on occasion, Malnutrition, Cohort study and Relative risk.
