Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

His primary scientific interests are in Immunology, Cytokine, Inflammation, Pharmacology and Tumor necrosis factor alpha. His Immunology study incorporates themes from Hyperalgesia and Chemotaxis. His study in Cytokine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Endocrinology and Leukocyte migration.

His Inflammation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Endogeny and Pathogenesis. His Pharmacology research includes themes of Zymosan, Anesthesia and Biochemistry. In his research on the topic of Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Interleukin 10 is strongly related with Lipopolysaccharide.

His most cited work include:

  • The pivotal role of tumour necrosis factor α in the development of inflammatory hyperalgesia (692 citations)
  • Involvement of resident macrophages and mast cells in the writhing nociceptive response induced by zymosan and acetic acid in mice (485 citations)
  • A cascade of cytokines mediates mechanical inflammatory hypernociception in mice (468 citations)

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

His main research concerns Immunology, Pharmacology, Internal medicine, Inflammation and Endocrinology. His work carried out in the field of Immunology brings together such families of science as Chemotaxis and Nitric oxide. The Chemotaxis study which covers In vivo that intersects with In vitro.

The various areas that he examines in his Nitric oxide study include Molecular biology, Biochemistry and Microbiology. The Pharmacology study combines topics in areas such as Anesthesia, Arthritis, Hyperalgesia, Nociception and Zymosan. His Inflammation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Receptor, Peritoneal cavity and Immune system.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (44.80%)
  • Pharmacology (25.73%)
  • Internal medicine (22.27%)

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

  • Immunology (44.80%)
  • Inflammation (19.87%)
  • Pharmacology (25.73%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Inflammation, Pharmacology, Internal medicine and Arthritis. Immune system, Cytokine, Sepsis, Rheumatoid arthritis and Pathogenesis are the primary areas of interest in his Immunology study. Fernando Q. Cunha has included themes like Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Receptor, Cancer research and Lipopolysaccharide in his Inflammation study.

His Pharmacology research includes elements of Oxidative stress, Edema, Hyperalgesia, Nociception and Nitric oxide. His Internal medicine research incorporates elements of Gastroenterology, Anterior cruciate ligament and Endocrinology. His research in Arthritis intersects with topics in Zymosan, Brain stimulation and Sympathetic nervous system.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • SARS-CoV-2-triggered neutrophil extracellular traps mediate COVID-19 pathology. (112 citations)
  • IL-33 contributes to sepsis-induced long-term immunosuppression by expanding the regulatory T cell population (88 citations)
  • Paclitaxel Reduces Tumor Growth by Reprogramming Tumor-Associated Macrophages to an M1 Profile in a TLR4-Dependent Manner (87 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

His scientific interests lie mostly in Immunology, Inflammation, Arthritis, Internal medicine and Sepsis. His Immunology study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Peripheral blood mononuclear cell. Fernando Q. Cunha has researched Inflammation in several fields, including Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Extracellular, Cell biology and Pathophysiology.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Dental plaque, Clinical attachment loss, Rheumatoid arthritis and Cytokine. His research in Internal medicine focuses on subjects like Endocrinology, which are connected to Cathepsin K. The study incorporates disciplines such as Receptor, Nitric oxide and Inflammatory reflex in addition to Sepsis.
