Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Internal medicine

His scientific interests lie mostly in Immunology, Immune system, Cell biology, Interleukin 10 and Allergy. His study in the fields of IL-2 receptor, Asthma and FOXP3 under the domain of Immunology overlaps with other disciplines such as Population. His study in Immune system is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Evolutionary biology, Adaptation, Antigen and Effector.

Hermelijn H. Smits usually deals with Effector and limits it to topics linked to T lymphocyte and Dendritic cell. The concepts of his Cell biology study are interwoven with issues in Phenotype, Schistosoma mansoni and Immunity. His Allergy research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Eosinophilia, Inflammation, Chronic infection, Immunoglobulin E and Bronchoalveolar lavage.

His most cited work include:

  • Selective probiotic bacteria induce IL-10-producing regulatory T cells in vitro by modulating dendritic cell function through dendritic cell-specific intercellular adhesion molecule 3-grabbing nonintegrin. (633 citations)
  • Dendritic cell-mediated T cell polarization. (317 citations)
  • Dendritic cell-mediated T cell polarization. (317 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Immune system, Asthma, Antigen and Cytokine. His is doing research in Allergy, Regulatory B cells, Interleukin 10, T cell and Inflammation, both of which are found in Immunology. His Immune system study incorporates themes from Helminths, Schistosoma mansoni and Cell biology.

His Cell biology research incorporates elements of Phenotype and Cell growth. His Asthma research focuses on Sputum and how it connects with Hypertonic saline. His work in Cytokine addresses subjects such as Dendritic cell, which are connected to disciplines such as Antigen-presenting cell.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (66.92%)
  • Immune system (38.46%)
  • Asthma (16.92%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Immunology (66.92%)
  • Immune system (38.46%)
  • Asthma (16.92%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Immunology, Immune system, Asthma, Innate immune system and Family medicine. Immunology is closely attributed to Host in his study. His Immune system research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Schistosoma mansoni and Antigen.

His Asthma study combines topics in areas such as Dendritic cell migration, Allergen, Interleukin 17 and Lymph. His Innate immune system study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Inflammation and Interleukin 10. The study incorporates disciplines such as Disease, Airway and Effector in addition to Immunity.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Bronchiolitis needs a revisit: Distinguishing between virus entities and their treatments (36 citations)
  • Primary prevention of asthma: from risk and protective factors to targeted strategies for prevention (15 citations)
  • Worms: Pernicious parasites or allies against allergies? (10 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Internal medicine

Hermelijn H. Smits focuses on Immune system, Asthma, Disease, Immunology and Immunity. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Interaction with host, Schistosoma mansoni and Cell biology. His studies deal with areas such as Primary prevention, Bronchiolitis, Virus and Vitamin D and neurology as well as Asthma.

The Disease study combines topics in areas such as Bystander effect, Helminths, Host, Allergy and Smoking ban. He is involved in the study of Immunology that focuses on Mucous membrane of nose in particular. The various areas that Hermelijn H. Smits examines in his Immunity study include Inflammation, Allergic asthma, Innate immune system, Airway and Effector.
