Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Pathology

His primary areas of study are Cysticercosis, Taenia solium, Neurocysticercosis, Helminthiasis and Immunology. His Cysticercosis study incorporates themes from Adverse effect, Taenia and Public health. His Taenia solium research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Antigen, Antibody, Serology, Taeniasis and Pediatrics.

His studies deal with areas such as Surgery, Albendazole, Disease and Epilepsy as well as Neurocysticercosis. His Helminthiasis research includes themes of Veterinary medicine, Helminths, Asymptomatic and Vaccination. His Immunology research incorporates themes from Developed country, Parasitic disease, Physiology and Acquired epilepsy.

His most cited work include:

  • Proposed diagnostic criteria for neurocysticercosis (609 citations)
  • Taenia solium cysticercosis (559 citations)
  • Associations of fats and carbohydrate intake with cardiovascular disease and mortality in 18 countries from five continents (PURE): a prospective cohort study (480 citations)

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

Hector H. Garcia spends much of his time researching Taenia solium, Neurocysticercosis, Cysticercosis, Immunology and Taeniasis. The Taenia solium study combines topics in areas such as Virology, Antigen, Veterinary medicine, Serology and Taenia. The various areas that he examines in his Neurocysticercosis study include Albendazole, Disease and Epilepsy.

His Cysticercosis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Surgery, Environmental health, Transmission, Internal medicine and Helminthiasis. His research integrates issues of Echinococcosis and Helminths, Cestoda in his study of Helminthiasis. His work on Taeniasis is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Epidemiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Taenia solium (62.74%)
  • Neurocysticercosis (58.49%)
  • Cysticercosis (54.72%)

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

  • Taenia solium (62.74%)
  • Neurocysticercosis (58.49%)
  • Cysticercosis (54.72%)

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

Hector H. Garcia mainly focuses on Taenia solium, Neurocysticercosis, Cysticercosis, Taeniasis and Pathology. His study in Taenia solium is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cyst, Antigen, Veterinary medicine, Transmission and Serology. His Neurocysticercosis research incorporates elements of Internal medicine, Magnetic resonance imaging, Radiology, Antibody and Epilepsy.

Hector H. Garcia combines subjects such as Virology, Environmental health, Immunology, Disease and Pediatrics with his study of Cysticercosis. His Taeniasis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Rural area, Surgery, Public health and Hygiene. His research in Pathology intersects with topics in Urinary system, Central nervous system and Tandem repeat.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Associations of fats and carbohydrate intake with cardiovascular disease and mortality in 18 countries from five continents (PURE): a prospective cohort study (480 citations)
  • Fruit, vegetable, and legume intake, and cardiovascular disease and deaths in 18 countries (PURE): a prospective cohort study (200 citations)
  • Association of dietary nutrients with blood lipids and blood pressure in 18 countries: a cross-sectional analysis from the PURE study. (109 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Pathology

His scientific interests lie mostly in Taenia solium, Neurocysticercosis, Cysticercosis, Pathology and Serology. His research on Taenia solium also deals with topics like

  • Cyst which is related to area like Veterinary medicine,
  • Pharmacology and related Necrosis. Hector H. Garcia has included themes like Epilepsy, Tropical medicine, Internal medicine, Disease and Hygiene in his Neurocysticercosis study.

His work carried out in the field of Cysticercosis brings together such families of science as Cystic lesion, Taeniasis, Radiology and Taenia. His Taeniasis research includes elements of Developing country and Environmental health. His work in the fields of Cerebrospinal fluid overlaps with other areas such as Association.
