Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Immune system
  • Gene

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Leishmaniasis, Leishmania, Visceral leishmaniasis and Immune system. Her Immunology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Internal medicine and Leishmania major. Her research in Leishmaniasis intersects with topics in Computational biology, Host response and Virology.

Her Leishmania study incorporates themes from Salivary gland, Macrophage and Microbiology. Her Visceral leishmaniasis research incorporates elements of Immunoglobulin G, Antibody, Antigen and Asymptomatic. Her work deals with themes such as Disease evolution, Host and Saliva, which intersect with Immune system.

Her most cited work include:

  • New Perspectives on a Subclinical Form of Visceral Leishmaniasis (413 citations)
  • Transforming growth factor-beta in leishmanial infection: a parasite escape mechanism (394 citations)
  • Leishmaniasis in Bahia, Brazil: evidence that Leishmania amazonensis produces a wide spectrum of clinical disease. (304 citations)

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

Her primary areas of study are Immunology, Leishmania, Leishmaniasis, Immune system and Cutaneous leishmaniasis. Her research on Immunology often connects related areas such as Saliva. The concepts of her Leishmania study are interwoven with issues in Antibody, Macrophage, Microbiology and Virology.

Her Leishmaniasis research incorporates themes from Dermatology, Vector, Internal medicine and Amastigote. Aldina Barral works mostly in the field of Immune system, limiting it down to topics relating to Peripheral blood mononuclear cell and, in certain cases, CD8, as a part of the same area of interest. Her Cutaneous leishmaniasis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Lesion, Gene expression, Disease and Lymph.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (86.15%)
  • Leishmania (52.31%)
  • Leishmaniasis (44.31%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Immunology (86.15%)
  • Leishmania (52.31%)
  • Cutaneous leishmaniasis (35.69%)

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

Aldina Barral spends much of her time researching Immunology, Leishmania, Cutaneous leishmaniasis, Leishmania braziliensis and Microbiology. She has included themes like Intracellular and Leukocyte chemotaxis in her Immunology study. Her Leishmania research integrates issues from Leishmaniasis, Antibody and Virology.

Aldina Barral does research in Leishmaniasis, focusing on Visceral leishmaniasis specifically. Her Cutaneous leishmaniasis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Ex vivo, Cancer research, Transcriptome, Gene expression and Disease. The study incorporates disciplines such as Bioinformatics, Gastroenterology, Saliva, Gene Annotation and Computational biology in addition to Leishmania braziliensis.

Between 2014 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Arginase I, Polyamine, and Prostaglandin E2 Pathways Suppress the Inflammatory Response and Contribute to Diffuse Cutaneous Leishmaniasis (52 citations)
  • Exposure to Leishmania braziliensis Triggers Neutrophil Activation and Apoptosis (24 citations)
  • Differential Gene Expression and Infection Profiles of Cutaneous and Mucosal Leishmania braziliensis Isolates from the Same Patient. (20 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Immune system
  • Gene

Aldina Barral focuses on Immunology, Leishmania, Leishmania braziliensis, Leishmaniasis and Cutaneous leishmaniasis. Her Immunology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Moraxella catarrhalis, Lower respiratory tract infection and Microbiology. The various areas that Aldina Barral examines in her Leishmania study include In vitro, Lipid signaling, Homeostasis, Leukocyte chemotaxis and Intracellular.

Her Leishmania braziliensis research includes themes of Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Bioinformatics, Cell activation, Gene Annotation and Computational biology. Her studies deal with areas such as Gene and Antigen as well as Leishmaniasis. Aldina Barral works mostly in the field of Cutaneous leishmaniasis, limiting it down to topics relating to Immune system and, in certain cases, Saliva, Antibody, Psychodidae and Prostaglandin.
