Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Genetics

Bruno Levecke spends much of his time researching Veterinary medicine, Trichuris trichiura, Giardia, Ascaris lumbricoides and Helminths. The study incorporates disciplines such as Feces and Sample size determination in addition to Veterinary medicine. His studies in Trichuris trichiura integrate themes in fields like Trichuris, Trichuriasis, Strongyloidiasis and Environmental health.

His Giardia research includes themes of Molecular epidemiology, Genotype, Parasitology and Locus. His work carried out in the field of Ascaris lumbricoides brings together such families of science as Ivermectin and Anthelmintic. Bruno Levecke interconnects Protozoan infection and Canis in the investigation of issues within Helminths.

His most cited work include:

  • Assessment of the anthelmintic efficacy of albendazole in school children in seven countries where soil-transmitted helminths are endemic. (193 citations)
  • Molecular characterization of Blastocystis isolates from zoo animals and their animal-keepers (174 citations)
  • Is anthelmintic resistance a concern for the control of human soil-transmitted helminths? (162 citations)

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

Bruno Levecke focuses on Veterinary medicine, Helminths, Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura and Anthelmintic. His Veterinary medicine research incorporates themes from Ascaris, Trichuris, Eggs per gram, Feces and Albendazole. His Helminths research integrates issues from Serology and Seroprevalence.

His studies deal with areas such as Ascariasis and Ascaris suum as well as Ascaris lumbricoides. His research in Trichuris trichiura tackles topics such as Ancylostoma duodenale which are related to areas like Ancylostoma ceylanicum. His Anthelmintic research incorporates elements of Herd, Biotechnology, Mebendazole and Drug resistance.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Veterinary medicine (47.45%)
  • Helminths (20.44%)
  • Ascaris lumbricoides (18.98%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Veterinary medicine (47.45%)
  • Helminths (20.44%)
  • Ascaris lumbricoides (18.98%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Veterinary medicine, Helminths, Ascaris lumbricoides, Soil-transmitted helminth and Ascaris. His research in Veterinary medicine intersects with topics in Eggs per gram, Deworming, Kato katz and Soil transmitted helminthiases. His work is dedicated to discovering how Helminths, Serology are connected with Onchocerca volvulus and other disciplines.

His is involved in several facets of Ascaris lumbricoides study, as is seen by his studies on Trichuris trichiura and Necator americanus. His Trichuris trichiura study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as DNA, Nucleic acid and Schistosoma mansoni. The study incorporates disciplines such as Trichuris, Mortality rate and Longevity in addition to Ascaris.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Toward the 2020 goal of soil-transmitted helminthiasis control and elimination. (37 citations)
  • Diagnostic tools for soil-transmitted helminths control and elimination programs: A pathway for diagnostic product development. (28 citations)
  • Diagnostic performance of a single and duplicate Kato-Katz, Mini-FLOTAC, FECPAKG2 and qPCR for the detection and quantification of soil-transmitted helminths in three endemic countries. (25 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Genetics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ascaris lumbricoides, Helminths, Efficacy, Albendazole and Ascaris. Specifically, his work in Ascaris lumbricoides is concerned with the study of Trichuris trichiura. Bruno Levecke interconnects Veterinary medicine and Physiology in the investigation of issues within Helminths.

His Efficacy research integrates issues from Necator americanus, Eggs per gram, Internal medicine and Anthelmintic. The Albendazole study combines topics in areas such as Soil-transmitted helminthiasis and Helminthiasis. His work carried out in the field of Helminthiasis brings together such families of science as Mass drug administration and Environmental health.
