What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Botany
  • Enzyme
  • Biochemistry

A. Douglas Kinghorn spends much of his time researching Stereochemistry, Biochemistry, Pharmacognosy, Traditional medicine and Biological activity. His research integrates issues of Aglaia and Epidermoid carcinoma in his study of Stereochemistry. A. Douglas Kinghorn has researched Biochemistry in several fields, including Betulinic acid, Pharmacology and Garcinia mangostana.

The various areas that A. Douglas Kinghorn examines in his Pharmacognosy study include Flavonoid, Phenols, Terpenoid, Cytotoxicity and Anticarcinogen. In Anticarcinogen, A. Douglas Kinghorn works on issues like Antimutagen, which are connected to Quercetin, Piceid, Carcinogen and Piceatannol. His Traditional medicine research integrates issues from DPPH and Antioxidant.

His most cited work include:

  • Cancer Chemopreventive Activity of Resveratrol, a Natural Product Derived from Grapes (4049 citations)
  • Drug discovery from medicinal plants. (1071 citations)
  • IARC Monographs on the evaluation of carcinogenic risks to humans: Some traditional herbal medicines, some mycotoxins, naphthalene and styrene (743 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Stereochemistry, Biochemistry, Pharmacognosy, Traditional medicine and Biological activity. His Stereochemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Triterpene and Cytotoxicity. His Cytotoxicity research includes elements of Cytotoxic T cell and Pharmacology.

His Biochemistry study incorporates themes from Fractionation and Bioassay. A. Douglas Kinghorn interconnects Bark and Flavonoid in the investigation of issues within Pharmacognosy. His work on Traditional medicine is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Botany.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Stereochemistry (36.44%)
  • Biochemistry (19.28%)
  • Pharmacognosy (16.53%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Stereochemistry (36.44%)
  • Cytotoxicity (12.08%)
  • Apoptosis (6.36%)

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

A. Douglas Kinghorn mostly deals with Stereochemistry, Cytotoxicity, Apoptosis, Cytotoxic T cell and Natural. The Stereochemistry study combines topics in areas such as Cell culture and Lichen. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including IC50, Absolute configuration, Pharmacology and Lactone.

His Apoptosis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Molecular biology, Cancer research, In vitro and Pathology. The subject of his Cytotoxic T cell research is within the realm of Biochemistry. His study in the fields of Terpenoid, Structure–activity relationship and Natural Product Research under the domain of Biochemistry overlaps with other disciplines such as Protein Phosphatase Inhibitor.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Development of Anticancer Agents from Plant-Derived Sesquiterpene Lactones (76 citations)
  • Discovery of Anticancer Agents of Diverse Natural Origin. (53 citations)
  • Cardiac Glycoside Constituents of Streblus asper with Potential Antineoplastic Activity (29 citations)

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

  • Botany
  • Enzyme
  • Organic chemistry

His primary scientific interests are in Cytotoxicity, Pharmacology, Cell growth, In vitro and Structure–activity relationship. His Cytotoxicity research is classified as research in Biochemistry. Biochemistry is often connected to Syzygium in his work.

His work in Pharmacology addresses subjects such as Streblus asper, which are connected to disciplines such as Glycoside and Biological activity. His study looks at the relationship between Cell growth and topics such as Pathology, which overlap with Protein kinase B, Cancer research and PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway. His In vitro study also includes fields such as

  • Leishmania donovani which is related to area like Taxodium, Stereochemistry, Circular dichroism, Amastigote and Abietane,
  • In vivo together with Alkaloid, Thalictrum, Visceral leishmaniasis, Activator and Ovarian cancer.
