Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
  • Disease

His main research concerns Pediatrics, Internal medicine, Immunology, Meningitis and Surgery. His Pediatrics study combines topics in areas such as Cohort study, Mortality rate, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Malaria and Seroconversion. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Gastroenterology and Placebo.

His Immunology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Prospective cohort study and Refractory. His Meningitis study incorporates themes from Regimen and Pharmacotherapy. The study incorporates disciplines such as First episode and Cryptococcosis in addition to Surgery.

His most cited work include:

  • Efficacy of nine-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine against pneumonia and invasive pneumococcal disease in The Gambia: randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial (803 citations)
  • Randomised trial of Haemophilus influenzae type-b tetanus protein conjugate for prevention of pneumonia and meningitis in Gambian infants (377 citations)
  • Determinants of Mortality in a Combined Cohort of 501 Patients With HIV-Associated Cryptococcal Meningitis: Implications for Improving Outcomes (220 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Pediatrics, Internal medicine, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Immunology and Malaria. His studies in Pediatrics integrate themes in fields like Mortality rate, Prospective cohort study, Epidemiology and Cohort study. His Internal medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Gastroenterology and Meningitis, Surgery.

His work is dedicated to discovering how Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Public health are connected with Health care, Environmental health and Developing country and other disciplines. As part of his studies on Immunology, Shabbar Jaffar often connects relevant areas like Virology. His work in the fields of Plasmodium falciparum, Sulfadoxine and Cerebral Malaria overlaps with other areas such as Artemether.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Pediatrics (30.15%)
  • Internal medicine (24.62%)
  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (20.60%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (24.62%)
  • Cryptococcal meningitis (5.03%)
  • Pediatrics (30.15%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Cryptococcal meningitis, Pediatrics, Flucytosine and Confidence interval. His work in the fields of Internal medicine, such as Prospective cohort study, Diagnostic accuracy and Young adult, intersects with other areas such as Impaired fasting glucose. His Pediatrics study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Micronutrient.

Shabbar Jaffar combines subjects such as Odds ratio, Mortality rate and Cost-effectiveness analysis with his study of Confidence interval. Shabbar Jaffar focuses mostly in the field of Mortality rate, narrowing it down to matters related to Health services and, in some cases, Intensive care medicine. His Meningitis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Life years gained, Randomized controlled trial and Gastroenterology.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Antifungal Combinations for Treatment of Cryptococcal Meningitis in Africa (129 citations)
  • Prevalence of obesity, hypertension, and diabetes, and cascade of care in sub-Saharan Africa: a cross-sectional, population-based study in rural and urban Malawi. (102 citations)
  • Short-course High-dose Liposomal Amphotericin B for Human Immunodeficiency Virus–associated Cryptococcal Meningitis: A Phase 2 Randomized Controlled Trial (35 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
  • Disease

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Flucytosine, Meningitis, Public health and Pharmacotherapy. His study connects CINAHL and Internal medicine. His Meningitis study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Randomized controlled trial.

His Randomized controlled trial research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cryptococcal meningitis, Gastroenterology and Confidence interval. The various areas that Shabbar Jaffar examines in his Public health study include Evidence-based medicine, Public relations and 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak. His research integrates issues of Coinfection, Ambulatory, Pediatrics and Randomization in his study of Pharmacotherapy.
