  • Internal medicine
  • Malaria
  • Disease

His main research concerns Malaria, Plasmodium falciparum, Immunology, Environmental health and Internal medicine. The various areas that he examines in his Malaria study include Pharmacology and Public health. His Plasmodium falciparum study combines topics in areas such as Incidence, Virology, Veterinary medicine, Combination therapy and Pediatrics.

His Immunology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Pregnancy, Genotype and Intensive care medicine. His Environmental health study incorporates themes from Rate ratio, Mosquito control, Disease burden and Anopheles. His Internal medicine research incorporates themes from Artemether, Surgery, Lumefantrine and Dihydroartemisinin/piperaquine.

His most cited work include:

  • First results of phase 3 trial of RTS,S/AS01 malaria vaccine in African children. (684 citations)
  • A phase 3 trial of RTS,S/AS01 malaria vaccine in African infants. (550 citations)
  • Mortality and morbidity from malaria in Gambian children after introduction of an impregnated bednet programme (390 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Malaria, Plasmodium falciparum, Internal medicine, Immunology and Pregnancy. The concepts of his Malaria study are interwoven with issues in Virology, Environmental health, Pediatrics, Public health and Drug resistance. His Environmental health research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Rural area, Epidemiology and Psychological intervention.

His Plasmodium falciparum research includes themes of Tropical medicine, Chloroquine and Anopheles. In his study, Artemether/lumefantrine, Artemether and Adverse effect is inextricably linked to Surgery, which falls within the broad field of Internal medicine. Umberto D'Alessandro has included themes like Demography, Asymptomatic and Incidence in his Immunology study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Malaria (91.16%)
  • Plasmodium falciparum (43.37%)
  • Internal medicine (28.31%)

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

  • Malaria (91.16%)
  • Plasmodium falciparum (43.37%)
  • Internal medicine (28.31%)

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

Umberto D'Alessandro mostly deals with Malaria, Plasmodium falciparum, Internal medicine, Pregnancy and Environmental health. His Malaria research incorporates elements of Veterinary medicine, Asymptomatic and Cohort study. His Plasmodium falciparum research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Genetics, Drug resistance and Serology.

Umberto D'Alessandro interconnects Amodiaquine, Gastroenterology, Dihydroartemisinin/piperaquine, Primaquine and Azithromycin in the investigation of issues within Internal medicine. Umberto D'Alessandro combines subjects such as Global health, Intensive care medicine and Obstetrics with his study of Pregnancy. The Environmental health study combines topics in areas such as Intervention, Epidemiology and Incidence.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • COVID-19 pandemic in west Africa. (94 citations)
  • The effect of chloroquine dose and primaquine on Plasmodium vivax recurrence: a WorldWide Antimalarial Resistance Network systematic review and individual patient pooled meta-analysis (42 citations)
  • The effect of chloroquine dose and primaquine on Plasmodium vivax recurrence: a WorldWide Antimalarial Resistance Network systematic review and individual patient pooled meta-analysis (42 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Malaria
  • Law

His scientific interests lie mostly in Malaria, Internal medicine, Plasmodium falciparum, Primaquine and Sulfadoxine/pyrimethamine. His research in Malaria is mostly focused on Malaria transmission. His research in Internal medicine intersects with topics in Gastroenterology, Dihydroartemisinin/piperaquine and Hepatitis B virus.

His studies deal with areas such as Veterinary medicine, Phenotype and Drug resistance as well as Plasmodium falciparum. His Primaquine course of study focuses on Plasmodium vivax and Hazard ratio. His study looks at the relationship between Sulfadoxine/pyrimethamine and fields such as Sulfadoxine, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.
