Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Immune system

His primary areas of study are Immunology, Atopic dermatitis, Allergy, Internal medicine and Asthma. His Immunology study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Pathology. His research on Atopic dermatitis also deals with topics like

  • Disease which is related to area like Immune system,
  • Cathelicidin that intertwine with fields like Virology.

In his study, Eczema herpeticum is strongly linked to Immunopathology, which falls under the umbrella field of Allergy. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Gastroenterology, Placebo and Endocrinology. His Asthma study incorporates themes from Respiratory disease and Prednisone.

His most cited work include:

  • Endogenous Antimicrobial Peptides and Skin Infections in Atopic Dermatitis (1536 citations)
  • New insights into atopic dermatitis (1142 citations)
  • The treatment of Kawasaki syndrome with intravenous gamma globulin. (1072 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Atopic dermatitis, Dermatology, Internal medicine and Allergy. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Peripheral blood mononuclear cell and Immunology. His work in Atopic dermatitis covers topics such as Staphylococcus aureus which are related to areas like Microbiology.

As part of one scientific family, Donald Y.M. Leung deals mainly with the area of Internal medicine, narrowing it down to issues related to the Endocrinology, and often Receptor. The various areas that Donald Y.M. Leung examines in his Allergy study include Cytokine and Immunopathology. His Asthma research includes themes of Respiratory disease and Corticosteroid.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (55.98%)
  • Atopic dermatitis (34.76%)
  • Dermatology (15.53%)

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

  • Immunology (55.98%)
  • Atopic dermatitis (34.76%)
  • Dermatology (15.53%)

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

Immunology, Atopic dermatitis, Dermatology, Food allergy and Staphylococcus aureus are his primary areas of study. His work on Immunology is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Microbiome. His work in Atopic dermatitis addresses issues such as Allergy, which are connected to fields such as Skin infection.

His studies deal with areas such as Eczema herpeticum and MEDLINE as well as Dermatology. Donald Y.M. Leung combines subjects such as Observational study, Environmental health, Family medicine and Desensitization with his study of Food allergy. His Peanut allergy research incorporates themes from Internal medicine and Immunotherapy.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Antimicrobials from human skin commensal bacteria protect against Staphylococcus aureus and are deficient in atopic dermatitis (378 citations)
  • The immunology of atopic dermatitis and its reversibility with broad-spectrum and targeted therapies (214 citations)
  • Epicutaneous immunotherapy for the treatment of peanut allergy in children and young adults (164 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Immune system

Donald Y.M. Leung mainly investigates Immunology, Atopic dermatitis, Food allergy, Staphylococcus aureus and Microbiology. He has included themes like Microbiome and Disease in his Immunology study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Internal medicine and Allergy in addition to Atopic dermatitis.

Allergy and Asthma are commonly linked in his work. His work in the fields of Peanut allergy overlaps with other areas such as Psychological intervention. His research integrates issues of Virulence factor, Symbiosis, Toxic shock syndrome and Superantigen in his study of Microbiology.
