Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
  • Internal medicine
  • Virus

His primary areas of study are Immunology, Virology, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Virus and Internal medicine. His Immunology research incorporates elements of HIV vaccine and Sexual transmission. His study in Zidovudine and Viremia are all subfields of Virology.

His Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome study combines topics in areas such as Viral disease, Randomized controlled trial and Clinical trial. His work on Titer as part of general Virus study is frequently linked to Poxviridae, Orthopoxvirus and Vaccinia, bridging the gap between disciplines. His research in Internal medicine intersects with topics in Gastroenterology, Aciclovir, Sex organ and Oncology.

His most cited work include:

  • Reduction of Maternal-Infant Transmission of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 with Zidovudine Treatment (3277 citations)
  • Antiretroviral prophylaxis for HIV prevention in heterosexual men and women. (2088 citations)
  • Maternal Viral Load, Zidovudine Treatment, and the Risk of Transmission of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 from Mother to Infant (715 citations)

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

Immunology, Virology, Virus, Internal medicine and Viral load are his primary areas of study. His Immunology study also includes

  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome together with Pediatrics,
  • Clinical trial and related Pregnancy. His Virology research integrates issues from Semen and Antibody.

His Virus research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Peripheral blood mononuclear cell, Asymptomatic and In vivo. He interconnects Gastroenterology, Indinavir and Oncology in the investigation of issues within Internal medicine. His studies in Viral load integrate themes in fields like Regimen, Reverse-transcriptase inhibitor, Blood plasma, Viral shedding and Drug resistance.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (46.97%)
  • Virology (46.21%)
  • Virus (30.30%)

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

  • Internal medicine (28.03%)
  • Virology (46.21%)
  • Viral load (24.62%)

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

Robert W. Coombs mostly deals with Internal medicine, Virology, Viral load, Antiretroviral therapy and Immunology. His Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as HIV drug resistance, Acute infection, Oncology and Drug resistance. His Virology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Inflammation and DNA.

His work deals with themes such as Pregnancy, Cohort study, Regimen, CD8 and Transmission, which intersect with Viral load. As part of one scientific family, Robert W. Coombs deals mainly with the area of Cohort study, narrowing it down to issues related to the Pediatrics, and often Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. His Immunology research focuses on Viremia in particular.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • HIV Transmission Risk Persists During the First 6 Months of Antiretroviral Therapy. (48 citations)
  • A Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Trial of the Quadrivalent Human Papillomavirus Vaccine in Human Immunodeficiency Virus-Infected Adults Aged 27 Years or Older: AIDS Clinical Trials Group Protocol A5298 (43 citations)
  • The effect of oral preexposure prophylaxis on the progression of HIV-1 seroconversion. (40 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
  • Virus

Robert W. Coombs focuses on Internal medicine, Virology, Viral load, Immunology and Confidence interval. His study on Anal Infection is often connected to Human Papilloma Virus Vaccine as part of broader study in Internal medicine. His Virology research includes elements of Art initiation, Antiretroviral therapy and Semen.

His Viral load study is concerned with the field of Virus as a whole. By researching both Immunology and Informed consent, Robert W. Coombs produces research that crosses academic boundaries. He has included themes like Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and Cohort in his Peripheral blood mononuclear cell study.
