Analytical Epidemiology .
Analytical Studies .
Analytic Studies .
Analytic Epidemiology .
Epidemiology, Analytical .
Field of Epidemiology whose objective is to test association hypotheses and causal relationships. .
Epidemiology .
Field of medicine concerned with the determination of causes, incidence, and characteristic behavior of disease outbreaks affecting human populations. It includes the interrelationships of host, agent, and environment as related to the distribution and control of disease. .
/epidemiology .
/endemics .
/epidemics .
/frequency .
/incidence .
/morbidity .
/occurrence .
/outbreaks .
/prevalence .
/surveillance .
Used with human and veterinary diseases for the distribution of disease, factors which cause disease, and the attributes of disease in defined populations; includes incidence, frequency, prevalence, endemic and epidemic outbreaks; also surveys and estimates of morbidity in geographic areas and in specified populations. Used also with geographical headings for the location of epidemiologic aspects of a disease. Excludes mortality for which "mortality" is used. .
Epidemiologists .
Epidemiologist .
Qualified medical professionals who study the causes, incidence, and characteristic behavior of disease outbreaks or other health-related conditions and determine the interrelationships of hosts, agents, and environment related to the distribution and control of diseases. .
Molecular Epidemiology .
Genetic Epidemiology .
Epidemiologies, Genetic .
Epidemiologies, Molecular .
Epidemiology, Genetic .
Genetic Epidemiologies .
Molecular Epidemiologies .
Epidemiology, Molecular .
The application of molecular biology to the answering of epidemiological questions. The examination of patterns of changes in DNA to implicate particular carcinogens and the use of molecular markers to predict which individuals are at highest risk for a disease are common examples. .
Pharmacoepidemiology .
Pharmaceutical Epidemiology .
Epidemiologies, Pharmaceutical .
Pharmaceutical Epidemiologies .
Epidemiology, Pharmaceutical .
The science concerned with the benefit and risk of drugs used in populations and the analysis of the outcomes of drug therapies. Pharmacoepidemiologic data come from both clinical trials and epidemiological studies with emphasis on methods for the detection and evaluation of drug-related adverse effects, assessment of risk vs benefit ratios in drug therapy, patterns of drug utilization, the cost-effectiveness of specific drugs, methodology of postmarketing surveillance, and the relation between pharmacoepidemiology and the formulation and interpretation of regulatory guidelines.
