Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Tuberculosis, Immunology, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Internal medicine and Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The Tuberculosis study combines topics in areas such as Incidence, Intensive care medicine, Meta-analysis, Disease and Pediatrics. His Immunology research includes themes of Global health and Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome.

Stephen D. Lawn combines subjects such as Psychological intervention, Mortality rate, Epidemiology and Gerontology with his study of Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. His Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Sputum and Surgery. His Mycobacterium tuberculosis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Point of care, Pulmonary tuberculosis and Drug resistance.

His most cited work include:

  • Early mortality among adults accessing antiretroviral treatment programmes in sub-Saharan Africa. (559 citations)
  • 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)

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

Stephen D. Lawn spends much of his time researching Tuberculosis, Immunology, Internal medicine, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and Intensive care medicine. Stephen D. Lawn interconnects Incidence, Disease and Pediatrics in the investigation of issues within Tuberculosis. The Immunology study which covers Virology that intersects with Immune system.

Internal medicine is closely attributed to Surgery in his work. His research integrates issues of Developing country, Family medicine, Immunopathology and Risk factor in his study of Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Intensive care medicine, concentrating on Antiretroviral therapy and frequently concerns with Physical therapy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Tuberculosis (94.88%)
  • Immunology (73.90%)
  • Internal medicine (42.44%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2020)?

  • Tuberculosis (94.88%)
  • Internal medicine (42.44%)
  • Sputum (21.71%)

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

His primary areas of study are Tuberculosis, Internal medicine, Sputum, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Urine. His research in Tuberculosis intersects with topics in Surgery, Immunology, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and Intensive care medicine. His Immunology research incorporates elements of Odds ratio, Anemia and Lipoarabinomannan.

His Sputum study incorporates themes from Randomized controlled trial, Viral load, Emergency medicine, Tuberculosis diagnosis and Disease. The GeneXpert MTB/RIF research he does as part of his general Mycobacterium tuberculosis study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Respiratory infection, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His Urine study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Gastroenterology and AIDS-Related Opportunistic Infections.

Between 2013 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Prevalence of tuberculosis in post-mortem studies of HIV-infected adults and children in resource-limited settings: a systematic review and meta-analysis. (158 citations)
  • Diagnostic accuracy of the Xpert MTB/RIF assay for extrapulmonary and pulmonary tuberculosis when testing non-respiratory samples: a systematic review (115 citations)
  • Diagnostic accuracy of the Xpert MTB/RIF assay for extrapulmonary and pulmonary tuberculosis when testing non-respiratory samples: a systematic review (115 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome

His scientific interests lie mostly in Tuberculosis, Internal medicine, Sputum, Urine and Immunology. His study in Tuberculosis is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Surgery, Pediatrics and Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. His studies link Drug resistance with Internal medicine.

His work deals with themes such as Tuberculosis diagnosis and Mass screening, which intersect with Sputum. His Immunology research incorporates themes from Anemia and Lipoarabinomannan. As a part of the same scientific family, Stephen D. Lawn mostly works in the field of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, focusing on Diagnostic accuracy and, on occasion, Hazard ratio.
