Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Biochemistry
  • Animal science

His primary scientific interests are in Animal science, Corn oil, Meal, Endocrinology and Internal medicine. His Animal science research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Amino acid and Biochemistry. His Corn oil study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Tallow, Coconut oil, Weanling and Animal fat.

He combines subjects such as Apposition, Small intestine and Jejunum with his study of Weanling. The various areas that D. C. Mahan examines in his Meal study include Randomized block design, Glutathione peroxidase, Selenium and Lysine. His research in Endocrinology intersects with topics in Sperm, Semen and Vitamin E.

His most cited work include:

  • Effect of age, weaning and postweaning diet on small intestinal growth and jejunal morphology in young swine. (276 citations)
  • Comparative effects of high dietary levels of organic and inorganic selenium on selenium toxicity of growing-finishing pigs. (139 citations)
  • Changes in swine body composition from birth to 145 kg. (126 citations)

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

D. C. Mahan mainly investigates Animal science, Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Weaning and Weanling. His studies deal with areas such as Body weight and Meal as well as Animal science. Glutathione peroxidase and Toxicity is closely connected to Selenium in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Meal.

His work on Vitamin and Small intestine as part of general Endocrinology research is frequently linked to Colostrum and Lactation, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. D. C. Mahan studied Weaning and Hemoglobin that intersect with Hematocrit. His Weanling study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Randomized block design, Digestion and Corn oil.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (61.64%)
  • Endocrinology (36.99%)
  • Internal medicine (36.99%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2016)?

  • Animal science (61.64%)
  • Randomized block design (23.29%)
  • Urine (4.11%)

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

Animal science, Randomized block design, Urine, Feces and Meal are his primary areas of study. His Animal science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Endocrinology and Biochemistry. His Endocrinology study incorporates themes from Net energy and Mineral composition.

His study in Randomized block design is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Weanling, Weaning, Hemoglobin, Internal medicine and Phytase. His Kilogram study in the realm of Internal medicine connects with subjects such as Mineral, Accretion and Allometry. He interconnects Basal, Loin, Marbled meat, Feed conversion ratio and Intramuscular fat in the investigation of issues within Meal.

Between 2010 and 2016, his most popular works were:

  • Effect of Dietary Inulin and Phytase on Mineral Digestibility and Tissue Retention in Weanling and Growing Swine (31 citations)
  • Effect of dietary organic microminerals on starter pig performance, tissue mineral concentrations, and liver and plasma enzyme activities. (26 citations)
  • Effect of injected and dietary iron in young pigs on blood hematology and postnatal pig growth performance (24 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Biochemistry
  • Endocrinology

His primary areas of investigation include Randomized block design, Animal science, Weanling, Hemoglobin and Endocrinology. His Randomized block design research incorporates themes from Catalase and Saline. GPX3 and Glutathione peroxidase are the subjects of his Catalase studies.

His Saline research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Litter, Hematocrit and Hematology. Hemoglobin is often connected to Weaning in his work. His study in Feces intersects with areas of studies such as Prebiotic, Inulin, Phytase, Urine and Acclimatization.
