Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Endocrinology
  • Enzyme

Abba J. Kastin focuses on Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Blood–brain barrier, Central nervous system and Neuroscience. His Receptor research extends to Endocrinology, which is thematically connected. In his work, Endomorphin-1 is strongly intertwined with Pharmacology, which is a subfield of Internal medicine.

His Blood–brain barrier study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cerebrospinal fluid, Cytokine, Albumin, Cell biology and Parenchyma. His Central nervous system research includes themes of Neurotrophin, Immunology, Ratón, Interleukin and Peptide. Abba J. Kastin interconnects Morphine, Opioid peptide and Depression in the investigation of issues within Opiate.

His most cited work include:

  • Leptin enters the brain by a saturable system independent of insulin. (1083 citations)
  • Leptin enters the brain by a saturable system independent of insulin. (1083 citations)
  • Transport of brain-derived neurotrophic factor across the blood-brain barrier (955 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Blood–brain barrier, Hormone and Central nervous system. His work in Opiate, Luteinizing hormone, Radioimmunoassay, Enkephalin and -Naloxone are all subfields of Internal medicine research. He has researched Opiate in several fields, including Analgesic, Opioid peptide and Epilepsy.

His Endocrinology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Neuropeptide, Pharmacology and Peptide. As a part of the same scientific family, Abba J. Kastin mostly works in the field of Blood–brain barrier, focusing on Cytokine and, on occasion, Tumor necrosis factor alpha. His Central nervous system research focuses on Cerebrospinal fluid and how it connects with Reabsorption.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (93.85%)
  • Endocrinology (93.33%)
  • Blood–brain barrier (31.79%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1998-2015)?

  • Blood–brain barrier (31.79%)
  • Internal medicine (93.85%)
  • Endocrinology (93.33%)

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

His primary areas of study are Blood–brain barrier, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Central nervous system and Spinal cord. The concepts of his Blood–brain barrier study are interwoven with issues in Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Cytokine, Immunology, Cell biology and Peptide. His study in Perfusion, Insulin, Hormone, Albumin and Neuropeptide falls within the category of Internal medicine.

His research investigates the connection with Endocrinology and areas like Receptor which intersect with concerns in Pharmacology. His studies deal with areas such as Cerebrospinal fluid, Neurotrophic factors, Neurotrophin and Ratón as well as Central nervous system. Abba J. Kastin works mostly in the field of Spinal cord, limiting it down to topics relating to Endogenous opioid and, in certain cases, Nociception, as a part of the same area of interest.

Between 1998 and 2015, his most popular works were:

  • Differential distribution of endomorphin 1- and endomorphin 2-like immunoreactivities in the CNS of the rodent. (272 citations)
  • Differential distribution of endomorphin 1- and endomorphin 2-like immunoreactivities in the CNS of the rodent. (272 citations)
  • Decreased transport of leptin across the blood-brain barrier in rats lacking the short form of the leptin receptor (178 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Endocrinology
  • Enzyme

His main research concerns Blood–brain barrier, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Opiate and Receptor. His Blood–brain barrier study combines topics in areas such as Cytokine, Neuroregeneration and Cell biology. His research in Internal medicine intersects with topics in Diabetic mouse and Spinal cord.

Abba J. Kastin undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Endocrinology and Multiple time through his research. His Opiate research includes elements of Analgesic and Psychiatry. While the research belongs to areas of Receptor, Abba J. Kastin spends his time largely on the problem of Central nervous system, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Neurotrophin.
