Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Pathology
  • Internal medicine
  • Veterinary medicine

Piet Vellema focuses on Veterinary medicine, Outbreak, Q fever, Coxiella burnetii and Herd. The Culling research he does as part of his general Veterinary medicine study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Socioeconomics, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His Outbreak study deals with Vaccination intersecting with Foot-and-mouth disease.

His Q fever research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Epidemiology and Public health. His research in Epidemiology intersects with topics in Incidence and Environmental health. As part of his studies on Coxiella burnetii, Piet Vellema often connects relevant areas like Zoonosis.

His most cited work include:

  • The Q fever epidemic in The Netherlands: history, onset, response and reflection (243 citations)
  • Resistance of Fasciola hepatica against triclabendazole in cattle and sheep in The Netherlands. (182 citations)
  • Q fever in the Netherlands: an update on the epidemiology and control measures. (170 citations)

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

Piet Vellema mainly investigates Veterinary medicine, Q fever, Outbreak, Coxiella burnetii and Animal science. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Seroprevalence, Incidence and Vaccination. He has researched Q fever in several fields, including Serology, Epidemiology, Public health and Environmental health.

His studies in Outbreak integrate themes in fields like Disease, Disease Notification and Pediatrics. His Coxiella burnetii research integrates issues from Bulk tank, Zoonosis and Goat Diseases. His Animal science study combines topics in areas such as Triclabendazole, Bluetongue virus serotype, Haemonchus contortus and Cattle Diseases.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Veterinary medicine (66.98%)
  • Q fever (33.96%)
  • Outbreak (33.96%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Veterinary medicine (66.98%)
  • Coxiella burnetii (27.36%)
  • Q fever (33.96%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Veterinary medicine, Coxiella burnetii, Q fever, Outbreak and Herd. His work deals with themes such as Serology, Seroprevalence, Schmallenberg virus and Animal science, which intersect with Veterinary medicine. The concepts of his Animal science study are interwoven with issues in Doramectin, Haemonchus contortus and Incidence.

His Coxiella burnetii research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Culling, Bulk tank and Vaccination. His work on Q fever is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Public health. He has included themes like Zoonosis, Disease and Environmental health in his Outbreak study.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Q fever in humans and farm animals in four European countries, 1982 to 2010 (111 citations)
  • Haemonchus contortus resistance to monepantel in sheep. (101 citations)
  • Coxiella burnetii infections in sheep or goats: an opinionated review (70 citations)
