Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Asthma
  • Disease

Asthma, Allergy, Pediatrics, Epidemiology and National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey are his primary areas of study. His studies deal with areas such as Respiratory disease and El Niño as well as Asthma. In his work, House dust mite is strongly intertwined with Risk factor, which is a subfield of Allergy.

His Pediatrics research focuses on subjects like Environmental health, which are linked to Ambulatory care. His Epidemiology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Breathing and Intensive care medicine. His studies in National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey integrate themes in fields like Pregnancy, Ragweed, Gerontology, Breastfeeding and Socioeconomic status.

His most cited work include:

  • THE ROLE OF COCKROACH ALLERGY AND EXPOSURE TO COCKROACH ALLERGEN IN CAUSING MORBIDITY AMONG INNER-CITY CHILDREN WITH ASTHMA (1177 citations)
  • An economic evaluation of asthma in the united states (944 citations)
  • Prevalences of positive skin test responses to 10 common allergens in the US population: Results from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (495 citations)

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

Peter J. Gergen spends much of his time researching Asthma, Immunology, Allergy, Internal medicine and Pediatrics. His study on Atopy is often connected to Exhaled nitric oxide as part of broader study in Asthma. Immunology connects with themes related to Environmental exposure in his study.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Odds ratio, Adverse effect, Immunopathology, National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey and Risk factor. His Pediatrics research incorporates themes from Childhood asthma, Mortality rate, Emergency department and Birth cohort. His work on Fel d 1 is typically connected to Mite as part of general Allergen study, connecting several disciplines of science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Asthma (63.80%)
  • Immunology (30.06%)
  • Allergy (25.77%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Asthma (63.80%)
  • Immunology (30.06%)
  • Internal medicine (20.86%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Asthma, Immunology, Internal medicine, Asthma exacerbations and Spirometry. His work deals with themes such as Exacerbation, Immunoglobulin E, Randomized controlled trial and Pediatrics, which intersect with Asthma. His Pediatrics research focuses on Birth cohort and how it connects with Respiratory health.

His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Phenotype, Gene expression and Airway. His work on Asthma severity, Nonallergic rhinitis and Symptom severity as part of general Internal medicine study is frequently linked to In patient, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. In his study, National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey is inextricably linked to Environmental health, which falls within the broad field of Allergen.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Association of respiratory allergy, asthma, and expression of the SARS-CoV-2 receptor ACE2. (188 citations)
  • Transcriptome networks identify mechanisms of viral and nonviral asthma exacerbations in children. (37 citations)
  • Sensitization and Exposure to Pets: The Effect on Asthma Morbidity in the US Population. (34 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Asthma

His main research concerns Asthma, Immunology, Internal medicine, Childhood asthma and Allergic sensitization. Peter J. Gergen studies Asthma, namely Asthma control. In the subject of general Immunology, his work in Sensitization and Immunoglobulin E is often linked to Eosinophil activation, thereby combining diverse domains of study.

The various areas that Peter J. Gergen examines in his Internal medicine study include Serum specific ige and Asthma phenotypes. His study in Childhood asthma is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Phenotype, Respiratory health, Pediatrics and Birth cohort. His research in Allergic sensitization intersects with topics in Exposed Population and Environmental health.
