Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
  • Disease

Robert Colebunders mainly focuses on Immunology, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Tuberculosis, Virology and Pediatrics. His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Internal medicine and Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome. Robert Colebunders has included themes like Gastroenterology and Serology in his Internal medicine study.

His studies in Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome integrate themes in fields like Viral disease, Public health, Regimen and Immunopathology. His Tuberculosis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Rural area, Psychiatry, Cause of death and Cross-sectional study. His Pediatrics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Epidemiology, Surgery, Blood transfusion, Tropical medicine and Severity of illness.

His most cited work include:

  • Tuberculosis-associated immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome: case definitions for use in resource-limited settings. (512 citations)
  • Tuberculosis-associated immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome: case definitions for use in resource-limited settings. (512 citations)
  • Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome in patients starting antiretroviral therapy for HIV infection: a systematic review and meta-analysis. (510 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Immunology, Internal medicine, Pediatrics and Tuberculosis. The various areas that he examines in his Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome study include Developing country, Public health and Family medicine. His Immunology research includes themes of Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome, Intensive care medicine and Virology.

His Internal medicine research incorporates elements of Gastroenterology and Surgery. His study explores the link between Pediatrics and topics such as Onchocerciasis that cross with problems in Environmental health, Incidence and Demography. Robert Colebunders combines subjects such as Cross-sectional study, Disease and Drug resistance with his study of Tuberculosis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (40.05%)
  • Immunology (31.34%)
  • Internal medicine (23.16%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Onchocerciasis (13.08%)
  • Epilepsy (11.72%)
  • Ivermectin (5.45%)

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

His primary areas of study are Onchocerciasis, Epilepsy, Ivermectin, Demography and Public health. He has researched Onchocerciasis in several fields, including Internal medicine, Incidence and Environmental health. Robert Colebunders interconnects Gastroenterology and Visceral leishmaniasis in the investigation of issues within Internal medicine.

His Epilepsy research integrates issues from Epidemiology, Nodding Syndrome, Family medicine, Tropical medicine and Pediatrics. His work carried out in the field of Demography brings together such families of science as Gerontology, Cross-sectional study, Coronavirus disease 2019, Healthcare worker and Antiretroviral therapy. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Young adult, Logistic regression and Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Prednisone for the Prevention of Paradoxical Tuberculosis-Associated IRIS (56 citations)
  • The temporal relationship between onchocerciasis and epilepsy: a population-based cohort study (54 citations)
  • Onchocerciasis-Associated Epilepsy, an Additional Reason for Strengthening Onchocerciasis Elimination Programs (48 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome

His main research concerns Onchocerciasis, Epilepsy, Ivermectin, Onchocerca volvulus and Public health. The study incorporates disciplines such as Epidemiology, Incidence, Demography, Tropical medicine and Pediatrics in addition to Onchocerciasis. His Ivermectin study incorporates themes from Internal medicine, Etiology, Risk factor and High prevalence.

His Public health research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Chronic care, Health care, Psychiatry, Medical emergency and Transmission. In his study, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome is strongly linked to Harm reduction, which falls under the umbrella field of Psychiatry. His work deals with themes such as Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome and Tuberculosis, which intersect with Placebo.
