Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Immune system
  • Cancer

His scientific interests lie mostly in Neopterin, Immunology, Internal medicine, Immune system and Endocrinology. The various areas that he examines in his Neopterin study include Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Oxidative stress, Interferon gamma, Urinary system and Kynurenine. Dietmar Fuchs focuses mostly in the field of Immunology, narrowing it down to matters related to Cerebrospinal fluid and, in some cases, Central nervous system and Biomarker.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Gastroenterology and Surgery in addition to Internal medicine. The concepts of his Immune system study are interwoven with issues in Pathogenesis, Inflammation, Interferon, Receptor and Antibody. His Endocrinology study combines topics in areas such as Pregnancy, Phenylalanine, Serotonergic and Population study.

His most cited work include:

  • Immune response-associated production of neopterin. Release from macrophages primarily under control of interferon-gamma. (940 citations)
  • Neopterin as a Marker for Immune System Activation (508 citations)
  • Neopterin as a marker for activated cell-mediated immunity: Application in HIV infection (506 citations)

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

Neopterin, Immunology, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Immune system are his primary areas of study. His research in Neopterin intersects with topics in Cytokine, Peripheral blood mononuclear cell, Urinary system, Urine and Kynurenine. His Immunology research includes elements of Cerebrospinal fluid, Indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase and Virology.

His study in Internal medicine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Gastroenterology and Phenylalanine. Dietmar Fuchs studies Endocrinology, namely Oxidative stress. His Immune system research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Antibody and Pathogenesis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neopterin (51.31%)
  • Immunology (43.55%)
  • Internal medicine (33.74%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (33.74%)
  • Kynurenine (15.69%)
  • Neopterin (51.31%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Kynurenine, Neopterin, Immunology and Endocrinology. His Internal medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Gastroenterology, Phenylalanine, Tyrosine and Bipolar disorder. His Kynurenine study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Serotonin, Pharmacology and Indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase.

Within one scientific family, Dietmar Fuchs focuses on topics pertaining to Peripheral blood mononuclear cell under Neopterin, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Interferon gamma. His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biomarker, Cerebrospinal fluid and Central nervous system. His studies in Inflammation integrate themes in fields like CD8 and Cytokine.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Plasma Concentration of the Neurofilament Light Protein (NFL) is a Biomarker of CNS Injury in HIV Infection: A Cross-Sectional Study (222 citations)
  • An enzyme in the kynurenine pathway that governs vulnerability to suicidal behavior by regulating excitotoxicity and neuroinflammation (71 citations)
  • Probiotic Supplementation in Patients with Alzheimer's Dementia - An Explorative Intervention Study (68 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Enzyme

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Neopterin, Kynurenine, Immunology and Immune system. The Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Gastroenterology, Endocrinology and Bipolar disorder. His work deals with themes such as Cancer, Cerebrospinal fluid, Pathogenesis, Inflammation and Interferon gamma, which intersect with Neopterin.

The concepts of his Kynurenine study are interwoven with issues in Psychiatry, Pharmacology and Serotonin. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Biomarker, Peripheral blood mononuclear cell and Indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase. His Immune system research incorporates elements of Proinflammatory cytokine, IRF1, Cytokine and Neurotransmitter.
