Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Bacteria
  • Disease

David A. Sack mainly focuses on Cholera, Microbiology, Vibrio cholerae, Virology and Diarrhea. His Cholera research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cholera toxin, Immunology, Vaccination, El Tor and Cholera vaccine. The Immunology study combines topics in areas such as Pediatrics and Cohort.

His study in Microbiology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Plasmid, Bacteria, Escherichia coli, Transmission and Virulence. His Vibrio cholerae research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Ecology, Zooplankton, Biofilm, Vibrionaceae and Genetic variation. He interconnects Feces, Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli, Serotype and Incidence in the investigation of issues within Diarrhea.

His most cited work include:

  • Global Dissemination of Vibrio parahaemolyticus Serotype O3:K6 and Its Serovariants (402 citations)
  • Human reovirus-like agent as the major pathogen associated with "winter" gastroenteritis in hospitalized infants and young children. (369 citations)
  • Cross-Protection by B Subunit-Whole Cell Cholera Vaccine Against Diarrhea Associated with Heat-Labile Toxin-Producing Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli: Results of a Large-Scale Field Trial (313 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cholera, Microbiology, Virology, Diarrhea and Vibrio cholerae. His Cholera research includes themes of Environmental health, Outbreak, Immunology, Vaccination and Cholera vaccine. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli, Shigella, Antigen and Virulence.

David A. Sack has included themes like Bacteriophage, Nalidixic acid and Enterobacteriaceae in his Virology study. His work in Diarrhea tackles topics such as Pediatrics which are related to areas like Incidence and Odds ratio. His Vibrio cholerae research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cholera toxin and Vibrionaceae.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cholera (39.61%)
  • Microbiology (36.40%)
  • Virology (28.48%)

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

  • Cholera (39.61%)
  • Outbreak (8.35%)
  • Environmental health (10.49%)

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

His main research concerns Cholera, Outbreak, Environmental health, Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli and Hygiene. His Cholera study contributes to a more complete understanding of Virology. The various areas that David A. Sack examines in his Virology study include Bacteriophage and Rapid diagnostic test.

His Outbreak course of study focuses on Case fatality rate and Young adult. David A. Sack has researched Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli in several fields, including Antigen, Microbiology, Diarrhea, Bacterial adhesin and Antibody. His Immunology research extends to Diarrhea, which is thematically connected.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Protection against cholera from killed whole-cell oral cholera vaccines: a systematic review and meta-analysis (69 citations)
  • Psychosocial Factors Mediating the Effect of the CHoBI7 Intervention on Handwashing With Soap: A Randomized Controlled Trial. (54 citations)
  • Campylobacter jejuni transcriptional and genetic adaptation during human infection (33 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Bacteria
  • Disease

His primary scientific interests are in Cholera, Vibrio cholerae, Outbreak, Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli and Microbiology. His Cholera research includes elements of Sanitation, Incidence, Environmental health, Pediatrics and Hygiene. His research investigates the link between Pediatrics and topics such as Observational study that cross with problems in Cholera vaccine.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Veterinary medicine, Multiple Loci VNTR Analysis and Wet season in addition to Vibrio cholerae. His Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli research incorporates elements of Bacterial adhesin and Immunology, Antigen. His Microbiology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Infectious disease and Hemagglutination.
