Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Fetus

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Pregnancy, Amniotic fluid, Obstetrics, Chorioamnionitis and Immunology. Pregnancy is often connected to Vagina in his work. His Amniotic fluid research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Amniocentesis, Anaerobic bacteria, Andrology, Internal medicine and Premature rupture of membranes.

His Obstetrics research includes elements of Preeclampsia, Placebo, Gynecology, Prospective cohort study and Risk factor. His work deals with themes such as Ureaplasma urealyticum, Amnion, Rupture of membranes and Pathology, which intersect with Chorioamnionitis. His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Placenta, Trophoblast and Preterm labor.

His most cited work include:

  • Epidemiology and causes of preterm birth (4544 citations)
  • Epidemiology and causes of preterm birth (4544 citations)
  • Soluble endoglin contributes to the pathogenesis of preeclampsia. (1390 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Pregnancy, Obstetrics, Internal medicine, Amniotic fluid and Fetus. His Pregnancy study frequently involves adjacent topics like Immunology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Preterm labor, Gynecology, Asymptomatic and Premature birth in addition to Obstetrics.

His studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Gastroenterology, Endocrinology, Amnion and Cardiology. As part of the same scientific family, Roberto Romero usually focuses on Amniotic fluid, concentrating on Chorioamnionitis and intersecting with Rupture of membranes and Pathology. Roberto Romero interconnects Umbilical cord and Surgery in the investigation of issues within Fetus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Pregnancy (39.96%)
  • Obstetrics (33.03%)
  • Internal medicine (29.43%)

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

  • Pregnancy (39.96%)
  • Obstetrics (33.03%)
  • Fetus (25.73%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Pregnancy, Obstetrics, Fetus, Amniotic fluid and Inflammation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Endocrinology and Physiology. His studies deal with areas such as Gestational age, Gestation, Premature birth, Retrospective cohort study and Gynecology as well as Obstetrics.

His research in Fetus intersects with topics in Radiology and Ultrasound. His Amniotic fluid research incorporates elements of Gastroenterology, Chorioamnionitis, Internal medicine and Amniocentesis. His Inflammation study combines topics in areas such as Andrology, Transcriptome, Preterm labor and Intra-Amniotic.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Acute chorioamnionitis and funisitis: definition, pathologic features, and clinical significance. (357 citations)
  • Sterile and microbial-associated intra-amniotic inflammation in preterm prelabor rupture of membranes (204 citations)
  • Chronic inflammation of the placenta: definition, classification, pathogenesis, and clinical significance (192 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Fetus

His primary scientific interests are in Amniotic fluid, Pregnancy, Immunology, Inflammation and Placenta. His Amniotic fluid research includes themes of Amniocentesis, Gastroenterology, White blood cell, Internal medicine and Chorioamnionitis. His research integrates issues of Young adult and Obstetrics in his study of Pregnancy.

His studies examine the connections between Obstetrics and genetics, as well as such issues in Premature birth, with regards to Amnion. His Inflammation research incorporates themes from Andrology, Preterm labor, CD8 and Cytokine. His Placenta study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Pathology, Endocrinology, Preeclampsia and Cell biology.
