Fellow of The Academy of Medical Sciences, United Kingdom

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Immune system
  • Disease

Ajit Lalvani focuses on Immunology, Tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Tuberculin and Virology. His Immunology research focuses on subjects like Cytotoxic T cell, which are linked to Epitope and Circumsporozoite protein. He interconnects ELISPOT, Internal medicine, T lymphocyte and Vaccination in the investigation of issues within Tuberculosis.

His studies in Mycobacterium tuberculosis integrate themes in fields like Vitamin D and neurology and Genotype. He focuses mostly in the field of Tuberculin, narrowing it down to topics relating to Tuberculosis diagnosis and, in certain cases, Nontuberculous mycobacteria. His research investigates the link between Virology and topics such as Plasmodium falciparum that cross with problems in Vaccine trial, Anopheles, Virus and Immunogenicity.

His most cited work include:

  • Rapid Effector Function in CD8+ Memory T Cells (648 citations)
  • Influence of vitamin D deficiency and vitamin D receptor polymorphisms on tuberculosis among Gujarati Asians in west London: a case-control study (636 citations)
  • Comparison of T-cell-based assay with tuberculin skin test for diagnosis of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection in a school tuberculosis outbreak (547 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Tuberculosis, Immunology, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Virology and Latent tuberculosis. Ajit Lalvani has included themes like Internal medicine, Incidence and Cohort in his Tuberculosis study. His study looks at the intersection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis and topics like Microbiology with Antiprotozoal.

The concepts of his Virology study are interwoven with issues in Tuberculosis vaccines, ESAT-6, Epitope and Cytotoxic T cell, CTL*. His Latent tuberculosis research integrates issues from Pediatrics, Family medicine and Mass screening. Ajit Lalvani focuses mostly in the field of Tuberculin, narrowing it down to matters related to T-SPOT.TB and, in some cases, CFP-10.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Tuberculosis (71.02%)
  • Immunology (54.29%)
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis (43.67%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Tuberculosis (71.02%)
  • Latent tuberculosis (25.71%)
  • Internal medicine (24.90%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Tuberculosis, Latent tuberculosis, Internal medicine, Cohort and Mycobacterium tuberculosis. His Tuberculosis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Immunology, Incidence and Cohort study. Ajit Lalvani merges Immunology with Cell type in his research.

His Latent tuberculosis research incorporates elements of Family medicine and Active tuberculosis. Ajit Lalvani is interested in Pyrazinamide, which is a field of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. His work in Tuberculin addresses issues such as Vaccination, which are connected to fields such as Mass screening, Coinfection and ELISPOT.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Prognostic value of interferon-γ release assays and tuberculin skin test in predicting the development of active tuberculosis (UK PREDICT TB): a prospective cohort study (58 citations)
  • Innate activation of human primary epithelial cells broadens the host response to Mycobacterium tuberculosis in the airways. (33 citations)
  • Urgent challenges in implementing live attenuated influenza vaccine (31 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Immune system
  • Disease

Tuberculosis, Latent tuberculosis, Incidence, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Cohort are his primary areas of study. His Tuberculosis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Prospective cohort study and Internal medicine. The Latent tuberculosis study which covers Family medicine that intersects with Risk stratification, Active tuberculosis, Immune profiling and Tumor necrosis factors.

Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Cohort study under Incidence, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Retrospective cohort study and Rate ratio. The study incorporates disciplines such as Immune system and Immunology in addition to Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Many of his studies on Immunology involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as In vitro.
