Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Bacteria

Abraham Aseffa spends much of his time researching Tuberculosis, Veterinary medicine, Immunology, Virology and Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Abraham Aseffa has researched Tuberculosis in several fields, including Internal medicine and Interferon gamma. Abraham Aseffa has included themes like Livestock, Environmental health and Confidence interval in his Veterinary medicine study.

Immunology and Disease are frequently intertwined in his study. His studies deal with areas such as Odds ratio, Malaria, Parasitology and Polymerase chain reaction as well as Virology. The Mycobacterium tuberculosis study combines topics in areas such as Evolutionary biology, Antibacterial agent, Adaptation, Drug resistance and Demographic transition.

His most cited work include:

  • Out-of-Africa migration and Neolithic coexpansion of Mycobacterium tuberculosis with modern humans (648 citations)
  • The Relationship between Leishmaniasis and AIDS: the Second 10 Years (630 citations)
  • Recognition of Stage-Specific Mycobacterial Antigens Differentiates between Acute and Latent Infections with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (179 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Tuberculosis, Immunology, Internal medicine, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Virology. His Tuberculosis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Veterinary medicine and Drug resistance. His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Peripheral blood mononuclear cell and Disease.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Gastroenterology, Pulmonary tuberculosis and Surgery in addition to Internal medicine. His Mycobacterium tuberculosis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Transmission, Genetics, Rifampicin and Microbiology. His Virology research includes elements of Parasitology, Plasmodium falciparum, Malaria, Plasmodium vivax and Genotype.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Tuberculosis (35.36%)
  • Immunology (23.42%)
  • Internal medicine (19.67%)

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

  • Internal medicine (19.67%)
  • Tuberculosis (35.36%)
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis (17.10%)

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

Abraham Aseffa focuses on Internal medicine, Tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Virology and Cross-sectional study. His research integrates issues of Gastroenterology, Sputum, Blood culture and Vaccination in his study of Internal medicine. The various areas that Abraham Aseffa examines in his Tuberculosis study include Peripheral blood mononuclear cell and Family medicine.

His work carried out in the field of Mycobacterium tuberculosis brings together such families of science as Genetics, Drug resistance and Virulence. His research in Virology intersects with topics in Antibody, Rifampicin and Plasmodium vivax. His Cross-sectional study research includes themes of Young adult and Hepatitis B.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Relative Contribution of Symptomatic and Asymptomatic Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium falciparum Infections to the Infectious Reservoir in a Low-Endemic Setting in Ethiopia. (71 citations)
  • Phylogenomics and antimicrobial resistance of the leprosy bacillus Mycobacterium leprae. (46 citations)
  • The phylogeography and incidence of multi-drug resistant typhoid fever in sub-Saharan Africa. (36 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Bacteria

Abraham Aseffa mainly investigates Internal medicine, Tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Drug resistance and Virology. His studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Gastroenterology, Blood culture and Primaquine. His Tuberculosis research incorporates themes from Adverse effect, Case-control study and Cause of death.

His research investigates the connection with Case-control study and areas like Gene expression which intersect with concerns in Immunology. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Mycobacterium tuberculosis, concentrating on Isoniazid and frequently concerns with Rifampicin. His study on Infectivity is often connected to Human tubercle bacillus as part of broader study in Virology.
