Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Cancer
  • Immune system

His main research concerns Immunology, Melanoma, Antigen, Antibody and Immune system. His research in Immunology tackles topics such as Cytotoxic T cell which are related to areas like Tumor microenvironment. His Melanoma research incorporates themes from Stage, Internal medicine, Clinical trial and Pathology.

His Pathology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cancer and Gene expression profiling. His Antigen study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Pan-T antigens and Antigen presentation. His work on Monoclonal antibody, Monoclonal and Immunoglobulin G as part of general Antibody study is frequently connected to Melanocyte differentiation, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

His most cited work include:

  • Final Version of the American Joint Committee on Cancer Staging System for Cutaneous Melanoma (2311 citations)
  • Generation of human monoclonal antibodies reactive with cellular antigens (540 citations)
  • Mouse monoclonal IgG3 antibody detecting GD3 ganglioside: a phase I trial in patients with malignant melanoma. (530 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Antigen, Melanoma, Immune system and Antibody. In Immunology, Alan N. Houghton works on issues like Cytotoxic T cell, which are connected to Tumor microenvironment. His Antigen study incorporates themes from Monoclonal antibody and Virology.

His Melanoma research integrates issues from Cancer, Internal medicine and Pathology. His work deals with themes such as Cancer cell and Tumor progression, which intersect with Immune system. Alan N. Houghton has researched T cell in several fields, including Cellular immunity and Cell biology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (63.19%)
  • Antigen (50.69%)
  • Melanoma (43.06%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2005-2017)?

  • Immunology (63.19%)
  • Immune system (41.32%)
  • Antigen (50.69%)

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

Alan N. Houghton mainly focuses on Immunology, Immune system, Antigen, Melanoma and Cytotoxic T cell. CD8, T cell, Immunotherapy, DNA vaccination and IL-2 receptor are subfields of Immunology in which his conducts study. His Immune system research includes themes of Adjuvant, Stimulation and Virology.

His research in Antigen intersects with topics in Antibody, Monoclonal antibody and Autoimmunity. His Melanoma research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Internal medicine, Null cell and Active immunization. His Cytotoxic T cell research includes themes of Tumor microenvironment, Acquired immune system and Cancer research.

Between 2005 and 2017, his most popular works were:

  • Monocytic CCR2+ Myeloid Derived Suppressor Cells Promote Immune Escape By Limiting Activated CD8 T Cell Infiltration Into The Tumor Microenvironment (237 citations)
  • Agonist anti-GITR monoclonal antibody induces melanoma tumor immunity in mice by altering regulatory T cell stability and intra-tumor accumulation. (203 citations)
  • Agonist anti-GITR monoclonal antibody induces melanoma tumor immunity in mice by altering regulatory T cell stability and intra-tumor accumulation. (203 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Cancer
  • Immune system

Alan N. Houghton focuses on Immunology, Cytotoxic T cell, Immune system, CD8 and Antigen. His Immunology study frequently links to other fields, such as Melanoma. His Melanoma research focuses on Internal medicine and how it connects with Oncology.

His study looks at the relationship between Cytotoxic T cell and fields such as Tumor microenvironment, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His research investigates the connection between CD8 and topics such as FOXP3 that intersect with issues in Regulatory T cell and Glucocorticoid-Induced TNFR-Related Protein. Antigen and Antibody are commonly linked in his work.
