Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Surgery

His primary areas of study are Echinococcus multilocularis, Taenia solium, Echinococcus granulosus, Veterinary medicine and Echinococcus. His Echinococcus multilocularis research incorporates themes from Ecology, Genetics, Antigen and Serology. To a larger extent, Akira Ito studies Cysticercosis with the aim of understanding Taenia solium.

His biological study deals with issues like Genotype, which deal with fields such as Genetic diversity. His Veterinary medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Alveolar echinococcosis, Echinococcosis, Epidemiology, Environmental health and Helminthiasis. His Echinococcus research incorporates elements of Cestoda and Echinococcus shiquicus.

His most cited work include:

  • A molecular phylogeny of the genus Echinococcus inferred from complete mitochondrial genomes (344 citations)
  • Genetic characterization and phylogenetic position of Echinococcus felidis (Cestoda: Taeniidae) from the African lion. (198 citations)
  • DNA differential diagnosis of taeniasis and cysticercosis by multiplex PCR (186 citations)

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

Akira Ito mainly focuses on Taenia solium, Cysticercosis, Echinococcosis, Veterinary medicine and Taenia. His research investigates the connection between Taenia solium and topics such as Virology that intersect with issues in Recombinant DNA and Helminth genetics. His Cysticercosis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Taeniasis and Helminthiasis.

His work deals with themes such as Serology and Echinococcus granulosus, which intersect with Echinococcosis. His work carried out in the field of Veterinary medicine brings together such families of science as Helminths, Epidemiology, Public health and Environmental health. His study brings together the fields of Taenia asiatica and Taenia.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Taenia solium (25.94%)
  • Cysticercosis (22.84%)
  • Echinococcosis (18.63%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Taenia solium (25.94%)
  • Taenia (17.74%)
  • Taeniasis (16.85%)

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

Akira Ito mainly investigates Taenia solium, Taenia, Taeniasis, Veterinary medicine and Cysticercosis. His studies deal with areas such as Antigen, Serology, Neurocysticercosis and Neglected tropical diseases as well as Taenia solium. His study on Taenia also encompasses disciplines like

  • Taenia asiatica which intersects with area such as Nuclear gene,
  • Loop-mediated isothermal amplification which is related to area like Molecular biology.

His research in Veterinary medicine focuses on subjects like Echinococcus, which are connected to Echinococcus multilocularis, Hymenolepis, Echinococcus canadensis and Parasitology. His studies in Cysticercosis integrate themes in fields like Taenia hydatigena, Taenia species and Virology. His Virology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Echinococcosis, Immunology and Recombinant DNA.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Phylogenetic systematics of the genus Echinococcus (Cestoda: Taeniidae) (171 citations)
  • Genetic polymorphisms of Echinococcus granulosus sensu stricto in the Middle East. (91 citations)
  • Molecular phylogeny of the genus Taenia (Cestoda: Taeniidae): proposals for the resurrection of Hydatigera Lamarck, 1816 and the creation of a new genus Versteria. (86 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Surgery

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Veterinary medicine, Taenia, Echinococcus granulosus, Taenia solium and Echinococcosis. His Taenia study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Helminth genetics and Taenia asiatica. In the field of Echinococcus granulosus, his study on Cystic echinococcosis overlaps with subjects such as Molecular identification.

Taenia solium is a subfield of Cysticercosis that Akira Ito investigates. His Echinococcosis research integrates issues from Serology and Virology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Immunology and Antigen.
