Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Cancer

Josep Dalmau mostly deals with Encephalitis, Pathology, Immunology, Antibody and Limbic encephalitis. His studies deal with areas such as Young adult, Internal medicine and Psychosis as well as Encephalitis. His Pathology study combines topics in areas such as Paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration, Autoantibody, Cancer and Central nervous system disease.

His study in Immunology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Hippocampus and Cerebrospinal fluid. His Antibody research includes themes of Receptor, Pathogenesis and Antigen. As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Autoimmune encephalitis, focusing on Cohort study and, on occasion, Retrospective cohort study.

His most cited work include:

  • Anti-NMDA-receptor encephalitis: case series and analysis of the effects of antibodies (1992 citations)
  • Paraneoplastic anti–N‐methyl‐D‐aspartate receptor encephalitis associated with ovarian teratoma (1561 citations)
  • Clinical experience and laboratory investigations in patients with anti-NMDAR encephalitis (1486 citations)

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

Josep Dalmau mainly investigates Antibody, Pathology, Immunology, Encephalitis and Autoantibody. The concepts of his Antibody study are interwoven with issues in Immunohistochemistry, Receptor and Antigen. As part of the same scientific family, Josep Dalmau usually focuses on Pathology, concentrating on Cancer and intersecting with Nervous system.

His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cerebrospinal fluid and Epilepsy. His research integrates issues of NMDA receptor and Internal medicine in his study of Encephalitis. Josep Dalmau interconnects Gastroenterology, Endocrinology, Neurology and Oncology in the investigation of issues within Internal medicine.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Antibody (51.34%)
  • Pathology (45.56%)
  • Immunology (47.67%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Encephalitis (46.54%)
  • Antibody (51.34%)
  • Internal medicine (23.98%)

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

His main research concerns Encephalitis, Antibody, Internal medicine, Autoimmune encephalitis and Autoantibody. Josep Dalmau does research in Encephalitis, focusing on Anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis specifically. Antibody is a subfield of Immunology that Josep Dalmau tackles.

Josep Dalmau combines subjects such as Gastroenterology, Endocrinology and Limbic encephalitis with his study of Internal medicine. His Autoimmune encephalitis research incorporates themes from Myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein, Prospective cohort study and Encephalopathy. His research on Autoantibody also deals with topics like

  • Lung cancer which is related to area like Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome,
  • Cancer which is related to area like Bioinformatics.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Antibody-Mediated Encephalitis (315 citations)
  • Frequency, symptoms, risk factors, and outcomes of autoimmune encephalitis after herpes simplex encephalitis: a prospective observational study and retrospective analysis. (160 citations)
  • An update on anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis for neurologists and psychiatrists: mechanisms and models. (114 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Cancer

His primary scientific interests are in Encephalitis, Autoimmune encephalitis, Autoantibody, Antibody and Internal medicine. The study incorporates disciplines such as Herpes simplex virus, Coma, Disease, Myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein and Optic neuritis in addition to Encephalitis. His Autoantibody study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cancer, Immunotherapy, Antigen and Bioinformatics.

The various areas that Josep Dalmau examines in his Antibody study include NMDA receptor, Receptor, Western blot and Pathology. The Pathology study combines topics in areas such as Neuromyelitis Optica Spectrum Disorders and Multiple sclerosis. His work deals with themes such as Gastroenterology and Limbic encephalitis, which intersect with Internal medicine.
