Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Cancer

His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Framingham Heart Study, Risk factor, Endocrinology and Framingham Risk Score. Ralph B. D'Agostino interconnects Diabetes mellitus, Surgery and Cardiology in the investigation of issues within Internal medicine. His work carried out in the field of Framingham Heart Study brings together such families of science as Gerontology, Stroke, Proportional hazards model, Atrial fibrillation and Cohort.

His study looks at the relationship between Proportional hazards model and topics such as Hazard ratio, which overlap with Gastroenterology. The various areas that Ralph B. D'Agostino examines in his Risk factor study include Odds ratio, Relative risk, Fibrinogen, Myocardial infarction and Vascular disease. His Framingham Risk Score research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Offspring, Epidemiology, Demography, Prospective cohort study and Risk assessment.

His most cited work include:

  • Prediction of Coronary Heart Disease Using Risk Factor Categories (7684 citations)
  • Evaluating the added predictive ability of a new marker: From area under the ROC curve to reclassification and beyond (4520 citations)
  • Propensity score methods for bias reduction in the comparison of a treatment to a non‐randomized control group (4289 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Framingham Heart Study, Cardiology, Endocrinology and Framingham Risk Score. His Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Diabetes mellitus and Surgery. His Framingham Heart Study research focuses on subjects like Proportional hazards model, which are linked to Hazard ratio.

His work on Cardiology is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Disease. The study incorporates disciplines such as Offspring, Odds ratio, Demography, Prospective cohort study and Risk assessment in addition to Framingham Risk Score. Risk factor connects with themes related to Incidence in his study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (59.15%)
  • Framingham Heart Study (30.72%)
  • Cardiology (25.52%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (59.15%)
  • Cardiology (25.52%)
  • Diabetes mellitus (16.61%)

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

Ralph B. D'Agostino mainly investigates Internal medicine, Cardiology, Diabetes mellitus, Cohort and Framingham Risk Score. His Internal medicine study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Endocrinology and Oncology. His Cardiology study incorporates themes from Prospective cohort study, Chemotherapy and Blood pressure.

His studies in Cohort integrate themes in fields like Surgery, Epidemiology, Cohort study, Disease and Hazard ratio. Ralph B. D'Agostino has included themes like Cholesterol and Risk assessment in his Framingham Risk Score study. His research integrates issues of Offspring, Agatston score, Proportional hazards model and Risk factor in his study of Framingham Heart Study.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Goodness-of-Fit-Techniques (961 citations)
  • Transcatheter aortic valve replacement versus surgical valve replacement in intermediate-risk patients: a propensity score analysis (660 citations)
  • Albiglutide and cardiovascular outcomes in patients with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease (Harmony Outcomes): a double-blind, randomised placebo-controlled trial (555 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Disease

Ralph B. D'Agostino mostly deals with Internal medicine, Cardiology, Framingham Risk Score, Cohort and Framingham Heart Study. His Internal medicine research includes themes of Diabetes mellitus, Endocrinology and Surgery. He usually deals with Diabetes mellitus and limits it to topics linked to Body mass index and Odds ratio.

His Cardiology research integrates issues from Renal artery, Kidney and Renal Artery Obstruction. His Framingham Risk Score research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cohort study, Coronary artery disease, Cholesterol, Risk assessment and Risk factor. His work deals with themes such as Demography, Proportional hazards model and Hazard ratio, which intersect with Framingham Heart Study.
