Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Helminths

J. Armour mostly deals with Immunology, Helminths, Ostertagia ostertagi, Ostertagiasis and Immunity. His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Stomach and Feces. His work in Ostertagia ostertagi addresses subjects such as Pasture, which are connected to disciplines such as Larva.

His Ostertagiasis research is included under the broader classification of Veterinary medicine. His Immunity research includes themes of Zoology, Epidemiology, Outbreak and Cattle Diseases. The study incorporates disciplines such as Host immunity, Anthelmintic and Trichostrongylus in addition to Epidemiology.

His most cited work include:

  • A field study of parasitic gastritis in cattle. (150 citations)
  • The epidemiology of helminth disease in farm animals. (123 citations)
  • Experimental Ostertagia ostertagi infections in calves: parasitology and pathogenesis of a single infection. (119 citations)

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

J. Armour focuses on Veterinary medicine, Helminths, Ostertagia ostertagi, Ostertagiasis and Animal science. His research in Veterinary medicine tackles topics such as Lungworm which are related to areas like Viviparus. His Helminths research integrates issues from Ecology and Outbreak.

His work on Cooperia oncophora as part of general Ostertagia ostertagi research is frequently linked to Pepsin, bridging the gap between disciplines. In his study, Trichostrongyloidea is strongly linked to Cattle Diseases, which falls under the umbrella field of Ostertagiasis. His Animal science study incorporates themes from Fenbendazole, Feces, Larva, Ostertagia and Grazing.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Veterinary medicine (34.95%)
  • Helminths (29.13%)
  • Ostertagia ostertagi (27.18%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1986-1999)?

  • Veterinary medicine (34.95%)
  • Anthelmintic (16.50%)
  • Ostertagia ostertagi (27.18%)

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

J. Armour mainly investigates Veterinary medicine, Anthelmintic, Ostertagia ostertagi, Larva and Ivermectin. The concepts of his Anthelmintic study are interwoven with issues in Epidemiology, Helminths, Trichostrongylus and Immunity, Host immunity. Immunology is closely connected to Blood chemistry in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Helminths.

J. Armour works mostly in the field of Ostertagia ostertagi, limiting it down to concerns involving Bolus and, occasionally, Duodenum. His research integrates issues of Feces, Host, Pasture and Animal science in his study of Larva. In his research, Ostertagiasis is intimately related to Albumin, which falls under the overarching field of Physiology.

Between 1986 and 1999, his most popular works were:

  • The influence of host immunity on the epidemiology of trichostrongyle infections in cattle. (106 citations)
  • Arrested larval development in cattle nematodes (54 citations)
  • Pathophysiological and parasitological studies on Cooperia oncophora infections in calves (49 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Pathology

His main research concerns Immunology, Anthelmintic, Helminths, Ostertagia ostertagi and Physiology. His studies in Immunology integrate themes in fields like Feces and Domestic sheep reproduction. The Anthelmintic study combines topics in areas such as Epidemiology, Triclabendazole, Trichostrongylus, Pharmacology and Albendazole.

His Helminths course of study focuses on Gastrointestinal tract and Bolus and Blood proteins. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Third stage larvae, Significant difference and Transplantation. His Physiology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Duodenum, Jejunum, Pathophysiology and Ileum.
