Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Immune system

His primary areas of investigation include Trypanosoma cruzi, Biochemistry, Cell biology, Microbiology and Proinflammatory cytokine. The Trypanosoma cruzi study combines topics in areas such as Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Cytokine, Immunology, Chagas disease and Glycoprotein. Igor C. Almeida has researched Chagas disease in several fields, including Benznidazole, Internal medicine, Randomized controlled trial and Antigen.

His Mucin, Intracellular and ATP synthase study in the realm of Biochemistry interacts with subjects such as Midgut. His Cell biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Vesicle, Innate immune system, Amastigote and Virulence. His Microbiology research includes elements of Micrococcus luteus, Antibody, Antibacterial agent and Serine.

His most cited work include:

  • Activation of Toll-like receptor-2 by glycosylphosphatidylinositol anchors from a protozoan parasite. (512 citations)
  • Randomised trial of efficacy of benznidazole in treatment of early Trypanosoma cruzi infection (407 citations)
  • Extracellular Vesicles Produced by Cryptococcus neoformans Contain Protein Components Associated with Virulence (376 citations)

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

Trypanosoma cruzi, Biochemistry, Chagas disease, Microbiology and Cell biology are his primary areas of study. His studies deal with areas such as Serology, Virology, Glycoprotein, Antigen and Mucin as well as Trypanosoma cruzi. His work in Biochemistry covers topics such as Molecular biology which are related to areas like Histone H1.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Benznidazole and Intracellular in addition to Chagas disease. He focuses mostly in the field of Microbiology, narrowing it down to topics relating to Macrophage and, in certain cases, Proinflammatory cytokine. In Cell biology, Igor C. Almeida works on issues like Vesicle, which are connected to Secretion.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Trypanosoma cruzi (42.03%)
  • Biochemistry (39.13%)
  • Chagas disease (24.15%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Trypanosoma cruzi (42.03%)
  • Chagas disease (24.15%)
  • Cell biology (20.77%)

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

His main research concerns Trypanosoma cruzi, Chagas disease, Cell biology, Virology and Antibody. His study in Trypanosoma cruzi is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Immunology, Antigen, Interaction with host, Mucin and Macrophage. Igor C. Almeida works mostly in the field of Chagas disease, limiting it down to concerns involving Benznidazole and, occasionally, Internal medicine and Serology.

He combines subjects such as Innate immune system, Immune system and Trypanosoma brucei with his study of Cell biology. His studies in Virology integrate themes in fields like Epitope and Leishmania major. The concepts of his Antibody study are interwoven with issues in Parasite hosting, Tick and Glycan.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Extracellular Vesicles from Trypanosoma brucei Mediate Virulence Factor Transfer and Cause Host Anemia (130 citations)
  • Treatment of adult chronic indeterminate Chagas disease with benznidazole and three E1224 dosing regimens: a proof-of-concept, randomised, placebo-controlled trial. (117 citations)
  • Amblyomma sculptum tick saliva: α-Gal identification, antibody response and possible association with red meat allergy in Brazil (53 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Immune system

Igor C. Almeida focuses on Internal medicine, Epitope, Virology, Antibody and Immune system. His study in Immune system is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Microvesicles, Intracellular, Cell biology and Antigen. Igor C. Almeida has included themes like Interaction with host, Trypanosoma cruzi and Chagas disease in his Microvesicles study.

The Trypanosoma cruzi study combines topics in areas such as Secretory protein, Cruzipain, Glycoprotein and Microbiology. The Cell biology study which covers Virulence factor that intersects with Infectivity. Glycan is the subject of his research, which falls under Biochemistry.
