Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Immune system

Rheumatic fever, Immunology, Heart disease, Molecular mimicry and Pathology are her primary areas of study. Her Rheumatic fever study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Primary prevention, Pathogen and Peptide vaccine. Her Heart disease research incorporates themes from Human leukocyte antigen and Antigen.

Her Molecular mimicry research includes elements of Epitope, T cell, Autoimmunity and Pathogenesis. As part of the same scientific family, she usually focuses on Autoimmunity, concentrating on Autoimmune disease and intersecting with Carditis and Erythema marginatum. Her Pathology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Tumor necrosis factor alpha and Interleukin 4.

Her most cited work include:

  • Acute rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease (193 citations)
  • Acute rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease (193 citations)
  • Human heart-infiltrating T-cell clones from rheumatic heart disease patients recognize both streptococcal and cardiac proteins. (187 citations)

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

Luiza Guilherme spends much of her time researching Immunology, Rheumatic fever, Heart disease, Molecular mimicry and Antigen. Immunology is frequently linked to Virology in her study. In her study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Rheumatic fever, Peripheral blood mononuclear cell is strongly linked to Pathology.

Luiza Guilherme works mostly in the field of Heart disease, limiting it down to concerns involving Disease and, occasionally, Acquired immune system. Her studies deal with areas such as Autoantibody, Genetic predisposition and Pathogenesis as well as Molecular mimicry. In her study, CD8 is inextricably linked to Cytotoxic T cell, which falls within the broad field of T cell.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (89.55%)
  • Rheumatic fever (71.64%)
  • Heart disease (46.27%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Rheumatic fever (71.64%)
  • Heart disease (46.27%)
  • Immunology (89.55%)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Rheumatic fever, Heart disease, Immunology, Molecular mimicry and Immune system. Luiza Guilherme combines subjects such as Dermatology and Autoimmunity, Disease, Pathology with her study of Rheumatic fever. The various areas that Luiza Guilherme examines in her Heart disease study include Group A, Toxicity, Pharyngitis and Intensive care medicine.

Her Immunology study combines topics in areas such as Insulin and Transplantation. She interconnects Carditis and Chorea in the investigation of issues within Molecular mimicry. Her research in Immune system tackles topics such as Autoimmune disease which are related to areas like Antigen, B cell and T cell.

Between 2014 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Acute rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease (193 citations)
  • Acute rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease (193 citations)
  • The epidemiology of sepsis in Brazilian intensive care units (the Sepsis PREvalence Assessment Database, SPREAD): an observational study (101 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Immune system

Her primary scientific interests are in Rheumatic fever, Heart disease, Streptococcal Vaccines, Immunology and Acute rheumatic fever. Her studies in Rheumatic fever integrate themes in fields like Mitral valve prolapse, Myxomatous degeneration, Collagen VI and Pathology. Her Heart disease research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Inflammation, Genotype, Allele, Haplotype and Ficolin.

Among her Streptococcal Vaccines studies, you can observe a synthesis of other disciplines of science such as Bacterial Outer Membrane Proteins, Low and middle income countries, Primary prevention, Peptide vaccine and Pathogen. Her work carried out in the field of Immunology brings together such families of science as Insulin and Transplantation. Her work deals with themes such as Quality of life, Pharyngitis and Intensive care medicine, which intersect with Acute rheumatic fever.
