Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Bacteria
  • Disease

His primary scientific interests are in Immunology, Virology, Plasmodium falciparum, Antibiotic resistance and Malaria. Jan Jacobs interconnects Respiratory disease, COPD and Sputum in the investigation of issues within Immunology. His Virology research integrates issues from Syphilis, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and Mass screening.

His work deals with themes such as Ciprofloxacin, Multiple drug resistance, Drug resistance, Environmental health and Salmonella typhi, which intersect with Antibiotic resistance. In his research on the topic of Salmonella typhi, Global health is strongly related with Typhoid fever. His Malaria research incorporates elements of Internal medicine, Intensive care medicine and External quality assessment.

His most cited work include:

  • Local and systemic inflammation in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: soluble tumor necrosis factor receptors are increased in sputum. (344 citations)
  • Phylogeographical analysis of the dominant multidrug-resistant H58 clade of Salmonella Typhi identifies inter- and intracontinental transmission events (267 citations)
  • Phylogeographical analysis of the dominant multidrug-resistant H58 clade of Salmonella Typhi identifies inter- and intracontinental transmission events (267 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Microbiology, Malaria, Internal medicine, Virology and Immunology. His research in Microbiology tackles topics such as Salmonella which are related to areas like Salmonella typhi. His Malaria research focuses on Parasitology and how it relates to Tropical medicine.

The Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Gastroenterology and Antibiotics. In his research, Ventilator-associated pneumonia is intimately related to Bronchoalveolar lavage, which falls under the overarching field of Immunology. His research investigates the connection with Ciprofloxacin and areas like Antibiotic resistance which intersect with concerns in Multiple drug resistance and Environmental health.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (32.73%)
  • Malaria (27.58%)
  • Internal medicine (23.97%)

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

  • Internal medicine (23.97%)
  • Blood culture (15.72%)
  • Antibiotic resistance (20.10%)

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

Jan Jacobs focuses on Internal medicine, Blood culture, Antibiotic resistance, Microbiology and Salmonella. He has included themes like Antibiotics, Malaria and Antimicrobial in his Internal medicine study. His Blood culture research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Bacteremia, Carriage, Typhoid fever and Veterinary medicine.

His Antibiotic resistance study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Ciprofloxacin, Escherichia coli and Ceftriaxone. Jan Jacobs is interested in Multiple drug resistance, which is a field of Microbiology. His work is dedicated to discovering how Salmonella, Serotype are connected with Multiple Loci VNTR Analysis, Salmonella typhi and Multilocus sequence typing and other disciplines.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • An African Salmonella Typhimurium ST313 sublineage with extensive drug-resistance and signatures of host adaptation. (18 citations)
  • An African Salmonella Typhimurium ST313 sublineage with extensive drug-resistance and signatures of host adaptation. (18 citations)
  • Best Practices of Blood Cultures in Low- and Middle-Income Countries. (15 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Bacteria
  • Disease

His primary areas of study are Blood culture, Internal medicine, Salmonella, Microbiology and Antibiotic resistance. The concepts of his Blood culture study are interwoven with issues in Incubator, Bloodstream infection, Typhoid fever, Bacteremia and Multilocus sequence typing. His studies deal with areas such as Gastroenterology and Lactoferrin as well as Internal medicine.

The various areas that he examines in his Salmonella study include Veterinary medicine, Livestock, Serotype and Multiple Loci VNTR Analysis. His Microbiology study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Salmonella enterica. Jan Jacobs works mostly in the field of Antibiotic resistance, limiting it down to topics relating to Epidemiological Monitoring and, in certain cases, Salmonella typhi, as a part of the same area of interest.
