Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Cytokine

His scientific interests lie mostly in Immunology, Immune system, Leptin, Autoimmunity and Internal medicine. As part of his studies on Immunology, Antonio La Cava frequently links adjacent subjects like Cell. His study in Immune system is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Inflammation, Hormone, Receptor and Interferon.

His Autoimmunity research incorporates elements of Autoimmune disease and Antigen. Internal medicine connects with themes related to Endocrinology in his study. His work carried out in the field of IL-2 receptor brings together such families of science as Natural killer T cell and FOXP3.

His most cited work include:

  • The weight of leptin in immunity (671 citations)
  • A Key Role of Leptin in the Control of Regulatory T Cell Proliferation (482 citations)
  • Leptin surge precedes onset of autoimmune encephalomyelitis and correlates with development of pathogenic T cell responses (287 citations)

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

Antonio La Cava focuses on Immunology, Immune system, Autoimmunity, Leptin and Internal medicine. His Immunology study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Systemic lupus erythematosus. His Immune system research includes elements of Disease and Pathogenesis.

The various areas that Antonio La Cava examines in his Autoimmunity study include Myasthenia gravis, Cytokine, Immunity, Immune homeostasis and Neuroscience. He has researched Leptin in several fields, including Adipose tissue, Hormone and Receptor. His research brings together the fields of Endocrinology and Internal medicine.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (79.43%)
  • Immune system (35.43%)
  • Autoimmunity (26.29%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Immunology (79.43%)
  • Immune system (35.43%)
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus (16.57%)

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

Antonio La Cava spends much of his time researching Immunology, Immune system, Systemic lupus erythematosus, Autoimmunity and Inflammation. Antonio La Cava interconnects Brain ischemia and Rheumatology in the investigation of issues within Immunology. His Immune system study incorporates themes from Spleen, Cell specific, Intracerebral hemorrhage and Transforming growth factor.

His research in Autoimmunity intersects with topics in Intensive care medicine and Immunotherapy. His Inflammation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Immune tolerance, Leptin and Effector. His studies examine the connections between Lupus erythematosus and genetics, as well as such issues in FOXP3, with regards to T cell.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Leptin in inflammation and autoimmunity. (94 citations)
  • Brain Ischemia Suppresses Immunity in the Periphery and Brain via Different Neurogenic Innervations (67 citations)
  • Metabolic pressure and the breach of immunological self-tolerance. (27 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Cytokine

His primary areas of study are Immune system, Immunology, Spleen, Autoimmunity and Inflammation. Antonio La Cava is interested in Immunity, which is a branch of Immune system. He has included themes like Cell specific, Intracerebral hemorrhage, Transcriptome and Immunosuppression in his Spleen study.

In his study, Acquired immune system is strongly linked to Leptin, which falls under the umbrella field of Autoimmunity. His work investigates the relationship between Acquired immune system and topics such as T cell that intersect with problems in Neuroscience and Brain ischemia. Many of his studies on Inflammation apply to Immunotherapy as well.
