Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Veterinary medicine

Domenico Otranto mainly focuses on Veterinary medicine, Zoology, Thelazia callipaeda, Thelazioidea and CATS. Domenico Otranto studies Rhipicephalus sanguineus which is a part of Veterinary medicine. His biological study deals with issues like Phylogenetics, which deal with fields such as Myiasis.

His study in Thelazia callipaeda is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Transmission and Thelaziasis, Helminths, Thelazia. The concepts of his Thelazioidea study are interwoven with issues in Keratitis and Spirurida. Domenico Otranto combines subjects such as Feces, Capillaria aerophila and Epidemiology with his study of CATS.

His most cited work include:

  • Ticks and tick-borne diseases: a One Health perspective. (535 citations)
  • On a Cercopithifilaria sp. transmitted by Rhipicephalus sanguineus: a neglected, but widespread filarioid of dogs (335 citations)
  • Managing canine vector-borne diseases of zoonotic concern: part two (230 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Veterinary medicine, Zoology, Leishmania infantum, Rhipicephalus sanguineus and Parasitology. His Veterinary medicine research includes themes of Spirurida, Vector, Dirofilaria immitis and CATS. His work on Entomology and Taxonomy as part of general Zoology research is frequently linked to Disease prevention and Disease control, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His research integrates issues of Serology and Virology in his study of Leishmania infantum. The Rhipicephalus sanguineus study which covers Canis that intersects with Ehrlichia canis. His Thelazia callipaeda research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Thelazioidea and Thelazia.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Veterinary medicine (44.48%)
  • Zoology (30.03%)
  • Leishmania infantum (12.46%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Veterinary medicine (44.48%)
  • Zoology (30.03%)
  • Dirofilaria immitis (11.61%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Veterinary medicine, Zoology, Dirofilaria immitis, Leishmania infantum and Vector. He has researched Veterinary medicine in several fields, including Ehrlichia canis and Anaplasma platys. His research in Zoology intersects with topics in Transmission, Haplotype and Canis.

Domenico Otranto works mostly in the field of Dirofilaria immitis, limiting it down to topics relating to Serology and, in certain cases, Parasitology and Asymptomatic, as a part of the same area of interest. His Leishmania infantum study combines topics in areas such as Antibody, Endemic area and Globulin. His Vector study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Thelazia callipaeda, Epidemiology and Larva.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Leishmania infantum and Dirofilaria immitis infections in Italy, 2009–2019: changing distribution patterns (23 citations)
  • Leishmania infantum and Dirofilaria immitis infections in Italy, 2009–2019: changing distribution patterns (23 citations)
  • Zoonotic Vectorborne Pathogens and Ectoparasites of Dogs and Cats in Eastern and Southeast Asia. (17 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Genus

Domenico Otranto mostly deals with Veterinary medicine, Zoology, Babesia, Dirofilaria immitis and Ehrlichia canis. His work deals with themes such as Leishmania infantum, Aelurostrongylus abstrusus and CATS, which intersect with Veterinary medicine. He interconnects Parasitic disease, Leishmaniasis and Phlebotomus perniciosus in the investigation of issues within Zoology.

His Dirofilaria immitis research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Vector, Serology, Parasitology and Filarial worms. His studies deal with areas such as Dirofilaria repens, Mediterranean climate, Culex pipiens and High prevalence as well as Vector. His Ehrlichia canis research focuses on subjects like Rhipicephalus sanguineus, which are linked to Spotted fever, Rickettsia, Rickettsia felis, Canis and Tick-borne disease.
