Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Immune system

His primary areas of investigation include Immunology, Plasmodium falciparum, Malaria, Virology and Wuchereria bancrofti. His Immunity, Holoendemic, Antibody, Cord blood and Cytokine study are his primary interests in Immunology. His Plasmodium falciparum study incorporates themes from Genetics, Antigen and Allele.

James W. Kazura has included themes like Vector and Disease in his Malaria study. As a part of the same scientific study, James W. Kazura usually deals with the Virology, concentrating on Parasitemia and frequently concerns with Circumsporozoite protein, Malarial parasites, Malaria falciparum and Kenya. His work deals with themes such as Diethylcarbamazine, Ivermectin, Helminthiasis and Vaccination, which intersect with Wuchereria bancrofti.

His most cited work include:

  • Plasmodium falciparum erythrocyte invasion through glycophorin C and selection for Gerbich negativity in human populations. (282 citations)
  • Helminth- and Bacillus Calmette-Guérin-Induced Immunity in Children Sensitized In Utero to Filariasis and Schistosomiasis (242 citations)
  • The role of animal models for research on severe malaria. (201 citations)

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

His main research concerns Immunology, Malaria, Plasmodium falciparum, Antigen and Virology. Antibody, Immune system, Immunity, Lymphatic filariasis and Wuchereria bancrofti are subfields of Immunology in which his conducts study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Veterinary medicine, Diethylcarbamazine, Internal medicine and Helminthiasis in addition to Wuchereria bancrofti.

James W. Kazura combines subjects such as Epidemiology and Allele with his study of Malaria. James W. Kazura has researched Plasmodium falciparum in several fields, including Genetics, ELISPOT and Polymerase chain reaction. His Antigen research focuses on subjects like Brugia malayi, which are linked to Molecular biology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (54.40%)
  • Malaria (32.40%)
  • Plasmodium falciparum (28.40%)

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

  • Malaria (32.40%)
  • Immunology (54.40%)
  • Plasmodium falciparum (28.40%)

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

James W. Kazura mostly deals with Malaria, Immunology, Plasmodium falciparum, Plasmodium vivax and Immunity. His Malaria research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Acquired immune system, Infection control, Cohort and Environmental health. James W. Kazura works mostly in the field of Acquired immune system, limiting it down to topics relating to Virology and, in certain cases, Apical membrane antigen 1.

Immune system, Antigen, Antibody, Innate immune system and Parasitemia are among the areas of Immunology where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. His study in Plasmodium falciparum is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Veterinary medicine, Transporter, Asymptomatic and Epidemiology. His Plasmodium vivax research incorporates themes from Incidence, Cohort study, Genetic diversity, Linkage disequilibrium and Microsatellite.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A Trial of a Triple-Drug Treatment for Lymphatic Filariasis. (58 citations)
  • Cutting Edge: Plasmodium falciparum Induces Trained Innate Immunity (45 citations)
  • Human antibodies activate complement against Plasmodium falciparum sporozoites, and are associated with protection against malaria in children (39 citations)
