Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Cancer

His primary scientific interests are in Immunology, Internal medicine, Immune system, Amniotic fluid and Antibody. Chlamydia trachomatis is the focus of his Immunology research. His Internal medicine research incorporates themes from Gastroenterology and Endocrinology.

His Amniotic fluid research includes elements of Chorioamnionitis, Gestation and Amniocentesis. The Antibody study combines topics in areas such as Semen, Antigen and Virology. His work in Pregnancy covers topics such as Gynecology which are related to areas like Infertility.

His most cited work include:

  • Guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy (3rd edition) (4170 citations)
  • The relationship of amniotic fluid cytokines and preterm delivery, amniotic fluid infection, histologic chorioamnionitis, and chorioamnion infection. (524 citations)
  • An experimental model for intraamniotic infection and preterm labor in rhesus monkeys (296 citations)

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

His main research concerns Immunology, Internal medicine, Antibody, Pregnancy and Immune system. His Immunology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Heat shock protein and Andrology. Steven S. Witkin interconnects Gastroenterology, Endocrinology, Oncology and Amniotic fluid in the investigation of issues within Internal medicine.

His work carried out in the field of Endocrinology brings together such families of science as Peripheral blood mononuclear cell and Interleukin 1 receptor antagonist. His Antibody research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Sperm, Semen and Virology. As part of the same scientific family, Steven S. Witkin usually focuses on Pregnancy, concentrating on Gynecology and intersecting with Vagina.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (36.91%)
  • Internal medicine (23.66%)
  • Antibody (21.61%)

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

  • Pregnancy (20.98%)
  • Internal medicine (23.66%)
  • Obstetrics (10.09%)

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

Steven S. Witkin mostly deals with Pregnancy, Internal medicine, Obstetrics, Virology and Antibody. His Pregnancy study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Vagina, Andrology, Prospective cohort study and Zika virus. The various areas that he examines in his Internal medicine study include Gastroenterology, Endocrinology and Oncology.

His studies in Obstetrics integrate themes in fields like Vaginal microbiome, Body mass index, Short cervix and Amniotic fluid. His Virology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Gene and Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. His Antibody research is within the category of Immunology.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Why do lactobacilli dominate the human vaginal microbiota (64 citations)
  • Chlamydia trachomatis: the Persistent Pathogen (54 citations)
  • Bacterial vaginosis: a critical analysis of current knowledge (45 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Cancer

His primary areas of study are Internal medicine, Cohort, Epidemiology, Obstetrics and Oncology. His Internal medicine research includes themes of Endocrinology, Cell growth and Germ cell. In his work, Hysterectomy is strongly intertwined with Gynecology, which is a subfield of Cohort.

The Obstetrics study combines topics in areas such as Gestational diabetes, Pregnancy, Vaginal microbiome, Myopathy and Urinary incontinence. His Pathological study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Vagina and Immunology. Steven S. Witkin combines subjects such as Tubal factor infertility and Pelvic inflammatory disease with his study of Immunology.
