Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Cytokine
  • Inflammation

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Inflammation, HMGB1, Tumor necrosis factor alpha and Cytokine. The various areas that Kevin J. Tracey examines in his Immunology study include Inflammatory reflex and Cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway. His Inflammatory reflex research integrates issues from Acetylcholine, Cholinergic, Reflex and Nervous system.

His studies examine the connections between Inflammation and genetics, as well as such issues in Arthritis, with regards to Extracellular. The study incorporates disciplines such as Proinflammatory cytokine, Molecular biology and Mediator, Cell biology in addition to HMGB1. His Tumor necrosis factor alpha research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Lipopolysaccharide, Septic shock and Shock.

His most cited work include:

  • HMG-1 as a Late Mediator of Endotoxin Lethality in Mice (2913 citations)
  • Vagus nerve stimulation attenuates the systemic inflammatory response to endotoxin (2795 citations)
  • The inflammatory reflex (2503 citations)

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

Immunology, Inflammation, HMGB1, Cytokine and Tumor necrosis factor alpha are his primary areas of study. Immunology is closely attributed to Pharmacology in his research. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Inflammation, focusing on Inflammatory reflex and, on occasion, Cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway.

His HMGB1 research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Molecular biology, Mediator, Cell biology and TLR4. While the research belongs to areas of Cytokine, Kevin J. Tracey spends his time largely on the problem of Endocrinology, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Parenteral nutrition. His Tumor necrosis factor alpha study combines topics in areas such as Lipopolysaccharide, Interleukin, Cachexia, Septic shock and Macrophage.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (37.90%)
  • Inflammation (31.63%)
  • HMGB1 (27.70%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Inflammation (31.63%)
  • Neuroscience (10.35%)
  • HMGB1 (27.70%)

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

His main research concerns Inflammation, Neuroscience, HMGB1, Immunology and Inflammatory reflex. His Inflammation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Cholinergic, Innate immune system, Immune system and Stimulation. His studies in Tumor necrosis factor alpha integrate themes in fields like Cytokine and Pharmacology.

In his research on the topic of Neuroscience, TLR4 is strongly related with Immunity. His research in HMGB1 intersects with topics in Inflammasome, Extracellular, Cell biology, Endocytosis and Proinflammatory cytokine. His Immunology study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Lung injury.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Vagus nerve stimulation inhibits cytokine production and attenuates disease severity in rheumatoid arthritis (402 citations)
  • Mechanisms and Therapeutic Relevance of Neuro-immune Communication (206 citations)
  • Neural regulation of immunity: molecular mechanisms and clinical translation (201 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Immune system
  • Cytokine

Kevin J. Tracey mainly investigates HMGB1, Inflammation, Immunology, Neuroscience and Immune system. His HMGB1 research incorporates themes from Inflammasome, Sepsis, Extracellular, Cell biology and Proinflammatory cytokine. Kevin J. Tracey combines subjects such as Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Forebrain, Choline acetyltransferase, Cholinergic and Innate immune system with his study of Inflammation.

His Immunology research includes elements of Inflammatory reflex, Hippocampus, Pharmacology and Basal forebrain. In general Neuroscience study, his work on Vagus nerve, Reflex and Neuroglia often relates to the realm of Dendritic spine, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cytokine and Nervous system.
