Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Immune system

His main research concerns Immunology, Rheumatic fever, Heart disease, Antigen and Molecular mimicry. All of his Immunology and Autoimmunity, Epitope, Chagas disease, Human leukocyte antigen and T cell investigations are sub-components of the entire Immunology study. His Epitope research integrates issues from Myosin and Virology.

His Rheumatic fever study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Mannose binding, Disease and Genotype. His studies in Antigen integrate themes in fields like Cellular differentiation, Peripheral blood mononuclear cell, Lymphocyte and Antibody, Phage display. His Molecular mimicry study combines topics in areas such as Pathogenesis and Pathology.

His most cited work include:

  • Genetic localization of a locus controlling the intensity of infection by Schistosoma mansoni on chromosome 5q31-q33 (294 citations)
  • Human heart-infiltrating T-cell clones from rheumatic heart disease patients recognize both streptococcal and cardiac proteins. (187 citations)
  • Autoimmunity in Chagas disease cardiopathy: biological relevance of a cardiac myosin-specific epitope crossreactive to an immunodominant Trypanosoma cruzi antigen. (184 citations)

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

Immunology, Antigen, Virology, Internal medicine and T cell are his primary areas of study. His Immunology study frequently links to related topics such as Heart disease. His work in Antigen addresses issues such as Molecular biology, which are connected to fields such as Monoclonal antibody.

His work investigates the relationship between Virology and topics such as Epitope that intersect with problems in Trypanosoma cruzi. His T cell study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cytotoxic T cell and CD8. His studies examine the connections between Rheumatic fever and genetics, as well as such issues in Molecular mimicry, with regards to Autoimmunity.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (64.78%)
  • Antigen (17.16%)
  • Virology (15.37%)

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

  • Immunology (64.78%)
  • Internal medicine (12.09%)
  • Dermatology (5.52%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Internal medicine, Dermatology, Anaphylaxis and Virology. The various areas that he examines in his Immunology study include Heart disease and Disease. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Heart disease, concentrating on Rheumatic fever and intersecting with Molecular mimicry and Toxicity.

In the field of Virology, his study on Dengue virus and Neutralizing antibody overlaps with subjects such as Pandemic, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 and 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak. The study incorporates disciplines such as Epitope and Zika virus in addition to Immune system. The Chagas disease study combines topics in areas such as Trypanosoma cruzi and Cardiomyopathy.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Development of vaccines against Zika virus. (77 citations)
  • Animal models of asthma: utility and limitations. (71 citations)
  • Viral Load and Cytokine Response Profile Does Not Support Antibody-Dependent Enhancement in Dengue-Primed Zika Virus-Infected Patients. (61 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Immune system

Jorge Kalil spends much of his time researching Immunology, Internal medicine, Anaphylaxis, Disease and Asymptomatic. His Immunology research includes themes of Trypanosoma cruzi and Cell biology. His study in Internal medicine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Gastroenterology, Placebo and Syphilis.

His Disease research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Inhalation, Asthma and Pathogenesis. His Asymptomatic research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Transmission, Seroprevalence and Environmental health. His studies deal with areas such as Acquired immune system, Cardiomyopathy and Gene expression as well as Chagas disease.
