Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Bacteria
  • Pathology

His primary areas of investigation include Animal science, Andrology, Lactation, Endocrinology and Internal medicine. His work on Herd as part of general Animal science research is often related to Random effects model, thus linking different fields of science. His study in the field of Culling is also linked to topics like Animal husbandry.

His research integrates issues of In vitro maturation, Human fertilization, Embryo and Blastocyst in his study of Andrology. His Somatic cell count study in the realm of Lactation interacts with subjects such as Transaminase and Multilevel regression. His work on NEFA as part of general Endocrinology research is frequently linked to Propidium iodide, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His most cited work include:

  • Risk factors for post partum ovarian dysfunction in high producing dairy cows in Belgium: a field study. (418 citations)
  • Non-esterified fatty acids in follicular fluid of dairy cows and their effect on developmental capacity of bovine oocytes in vitro. (331 citations)
  • Influence of parity and stage of lactation on the somatic cell count in bacteriologically negative dairy cows. (164 citations)

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

A. de Kruif mostly deals with Andrology, Veterinary medicine, Animal science, Herd and Sperm. He combines subjects such as Artificial insemination, Human fertilization, Embryo and Blastocyst with his study of Andrology. His Veterinary medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Virus, Classical swine fever, Outbreak and Salmonella.

His Animal science research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Udder, Ice calving, Lactation and Somatic cell count. His Lactation research integrates issues from Postpartum period, Endocrinology and Internal medicine. His Herd research includes themes of Seroprevalence, Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae, Weaning and Vaccination.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Andrology (24.44%)
  • Veterinary medicine (20.00%)
  • Animal science (19.56%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2014)?

  • Herd (18.22%)
  • Animal science (19.56%)
  • Gynecology (10.67%)

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

Herd, Animal science, Gynecology, Veterinary medicine and Pregnancy are his primary areas of study. His Animal science study incorporates themes from Ice calving and Left flank. His Gynecology study combines topics in areas such as Ovulation, Estrous cycle, Pathology, Andrology and Ultrasonography.

His work in the fields of Andrology, such as Semen quality, intersects with other areas such as Tumor cells. His studies deal with areas such as Salmonella and Medical education as well as Veterinary medicine. His work on Insemination is typically connected to Animal husbandry and Acute distention as part of general Pregnancy study, connecting several disciplines of science.

Between 2008 and 2014, his most popular works were:

  • Heifers infected with coagulase-negative staphylococci in early lactation have fewer cases of clinical mastitis and higher milk production in their first lactation than noninfected heifers. (74 citations)
  • Determination of the within and between flock prevalence and identification of risk factors for Salmonella infections in laying hen flocks housed in conventional and alternative systems (59 citations)
  • Type and frequency of contacts between Belgian pig herds. (48 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Pathology
  • Bacteria

His primary areas of study are Animal science, Herd, Veterinary medicine, Lactation and Salmonella. His Animal science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Increased risk and Stillbirth rate. The concepts of his Herd study are interwoven with issues in Obstetrics and Postal survey.

In his research, A. de Kruif performs multidisciplinary study on Veterinary medicine and Geography. As a part of the same scientific study, A. de Kruif usually deals with the Lactation, concentrating on Mastitis and frequently concerns with Culling and Somatic cell count. His Somatic cell count study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Vitamin, Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Postpartum period and Staphylococcus chromogenes.
