Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme

Arturo Casadevall mainly investigates Microbiology, Cryptococcus neoformans, Virulence, Antibody and Immunology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Melanin, Immune system, Monoclonal antibody and Yeast. His Cryptococcus neoformans research includes elements of Phagocytosis, Virology, Extracellular, Pathogenic fungus and Cryptococcosis.

Arturo Casadevall interconnects Pathogen, Host and Pathogenicity in the investigation of issues within Virulence. The study incorporates disciplines such as Function and Antigen in addition to Antibody. His study brings together the fields of Antimicrobial and Immunology.

His most cited work include:

  • Misconduct accounts for the majority of retracted scientific publications (578 citations)
  • Host-Pathogen Interactions: Redefining the Basic Concepts of Virulence and Pathogenicity (522 citations)
  • The convalescent sera option for containing COVID-19. (482 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Microbiology, Cryptococcus neoformans, Antibody, Immunology and Virulence. His study in Microbiology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Melanin, In vitro, Immune system and Yeast. His Cryptococcus neoformans research focuses on Cryptococcosis and how it relates to Mycosis.

Arturo Casadevall has included themes like Antigen and Virology in his Antibody study. Arturo Casadevall studies Immunity which is a part of Immunology. His Virulence study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Host and Cell biology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (45.68%)
  • Cryptococcus neoformans (45.39%)
  • Antibody (22.60%)

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

  • Cryptococcus neoformans (45.39%)
  • Microbiology (45.68%)
  • Antibody (22.60%)

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

Arturo Casadevall mostly deals with Cryptococcus neoformans, Microbiology, Antibody, Virulence and Coronavirus disease 2019. His research integrates issues of Cell, Biochemistry, Polysaccharide, Melanin and Cell wall in his study of Cryptococcus neoformans. His work deals with themes such as Phenotype, Immune system and Yeast, which intersect with Microbiology.

His Antibody study is concerned with Immunology in general. His Immunology research incorporates elements of Lung and Pneumonia. In his study, Macrophage is strongly linked to Phagocytosis, which falls under the umbrella field of Virulence.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The convalescent sera option for containing COVID-19. (482 citations)
  • Deployment of convalescent plasma for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19. (404 citations)
  • Early safety indicators of COVID-19 convalescent plasma in 5000 patients. (208 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme

Arturo Casadevall mainly focuses on Coronavirus disease 2019, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Convalescent plasma, Cryptococcus neoformans and Microbiology. His studies deal with areas such as Bioinformatics, Antibody, Pathogenesis and 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak as well as Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. His work carried out in the field of Convalescent plasma brings together such families of science as Titer, Neutralization, Immunology, Secondary immunodeficiency and Time course.

His Immunology research includes themes of Pandemic and Pneumonia. His Cryptococcus neoformans study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Yeast, Polysaccharide, Cryptococcus, Cell biology and Cell wall. The Microbiology study combines topics in areas such as Virulence factor, Virulence, Secretion, Immune system and Bacteria.
