Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Internal medicine
  • Antibody

Alexandre Barbosa Reis focuses on Leishmaniasis, Visceral leishmaniasis, Immunology, Leishmania chagasi and Virology. The Leishmaniasis study combines topics in areas such as Veterinary medicine, Disease and Leishmania. As a member of one scientific family, Alexandre Barbosa Reis mostly works in the field of Leishmania, focusing on Pathology and, on occasion, IIf, Amastigote and Spleen.

His research combines Serology and Visceral leishmaniasis. Alexandre Barbosa Reis focuses mostly in the field of Immunology, narrowing it down to topics relating to Asymptomatic and, in certain cases, Immunoassay. He works mostly in the field of Leishmania chagasi, limiting it down to topics relating to Antibody and, in certain cases, Canine leishmaniasis, Fucose-mannose ligand, Endemic area and Antigen, as a part of the same area of interest.

His most cited work include:

  • Impact of canine control on the epidemiology of canine and human visceral leishmaniasis in Brazil. (167 citations)
  • Systemic and compartmentalized immune response in canine visceral leishmaniasis. (140 citations)
  • Comparison of serological assays for the diagnosis of canine visceral leishmaniasis in animals presenting different clinical manifestations (110 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Visceral leishmaniasis, Immunology, Leishmania infantum, Leishmania and Leishmaniasis. His study in Visceral leishmaniasis is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Veterinary medicine, Serology, Antigen and Virology. Much of his study explores Immunology relationship to Asymptomatic.

His work is dedicated to discovering how Leishmania infantum, Microbiology are connected with Chagas disease and other disciplines. In general Leishmania study, his work on Amastigote often relates to the realm of Polymerase chain reaction, thereby connecting several areas of interest. Alexandre Barbosa Reis has included themes like Internal medicine, Incidence, Disease and Immunotherapy in his Leishmaniasis study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Visceral leishmaniasis (68.48%)
  • Immunology (56.52%)
  • Leishmania infantum (44.57%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Visceral leishmaniasis (68.48%)
  • Leishmania infantum (44.57%)
  • Immune system (27.17%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Visceral leishmaniasis, Leishmania infantum, Immune system, Immunology and Antigen. His Visceral leishmaniasis research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Virology and Serum samples, Antibody, Immunogenicity, Serology. His research in the fields of Babesiosis overlaps with other disciplines such as Anaplasmosis.

His Serology study combines topics in areas such as Multiplex and Flow cytometry. His Leishmania infantum research incorporates elements of Epitope, Parasite load and Microbiology. Alexandre Barbosa Reis combines subjects such as Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Cancer research, Angiogenesis, Cytokine and Cytotoxic T cell with his study of Antigen.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Label-free electrochemical impedance immunosensor based on modified screen-printed gold electrodes for the diagnosis of canine visceral leishmaniasis. (14 citations)
  • Recent advances and new strategies on leishmaniasis treatment. (9 citations)
  • Synthetic Peptides Elicit Strong Cellular Immunity in Visceral Leishmaniasis Natural Reservoir and Contribute to Long-Lasting Polyfunctional T-Cells in BALB/c Mice. (9 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Internal medicine
  • Antibody

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Leishmania infantum, Visceral leishmaniasis, Epitope, Immunogenicity and Leishmaniasis. His Epitope study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cellular immunity, Adjuvant, Leishmaniasis Vaccines and Virology. To a larger extent, Alexandre Barbosa Reis studies Immunology with the aim of understanding Leishmaniasis Vaccines.

His studies deal with areas such as Parasite load, Plasma cell differentiation, Immunophenotyping, Leishmania and Proinflammatory cytokine as well as Immunogenicity. His Leishmaniasis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Chromatography and Biosensor. His research on Reverse vaccinology concerns the broader Antigen.
