Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Immune system

Neil E. Alexis mostly deals with Immunology, Mucin, Asthma, Spirometry and COPD. His research integrates issues of Ex vivo and Macrophage in his study of Immunology. The concepts of his Mucin study are interwoven with issues in Proteome, Mucus, Chronic bronchitis, Lung and Nicotine.

His Asthma research integrates issues from Diabetes mellitus, Systemic inflammation and Heart rate. The study incorporates disciplines such as Anesthesia, Airway, Physical exercise, Ozone and Physiology in addition to Spirometry. His work on Obstructive lung disease as part of general COPD study is frequently connected to Blood lipids, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

His most cited work include:

  • Health effects of air pollution (620 citations)
  • The health effects of nonindustrial indoor air pollution (364 citations)
  • Biological material on inhaled coarse fraction particulate matter activates airway phagocytes in vivo in healthy volunteers. (158 citations)

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

Neil E. Alexis mainly focuses on Immunology, Airway, Inflammation, COPD and Internal medicine. His Immunology research includes elements of Macrophage and Lung. His work in Airway covers topics such as Mucociliary clearance which are related to areas like Mucin.

His research investigates the connection between Inflammation and topics such as Immune system that intersect with problems in CD80. In his study, Anesthesia, Systemic inflammation and Pulmonary function testing is strongly linked to Spirometry, which falls under the umbrella field of COPD. His work deals with themes such as Air pollution, Respiratory disease, Pollutant and Allergy, which intersect with Asthma.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (55.62%)
  • Airway (22.47%)
  • Inflammation (18.54%)

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

  • COPD (17.98%)
  • Airway (22.47%)
  • Internal medicine (17.98%)

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

Neil E. Alexis focuses on COPD, Airway, Internal medicine, Immunology and Lung. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Biomarker, Cancer research and Toxicity. His Airway research also works with subjects such as

  • Cystic fibrosis and related Molecular biology,
  • Former Smoker that connect with fields like 6 min walking test, Macrophage and CD80.

He works mostly in the field of Internal medicine, limiting it down to concerns involving Gastroenterology and, occasionally, Mucus and Mucin. Inflammation and Immune system are the core of his Immunology study. His Lung research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Metabolism, Function, Neutrophilia and Pathology.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Chronic E-Cigarette Exposure Alters the Human Bronchial Epithelial Proteome (93 citations)
  • Chronic E-Cigarette Use Increases Neutrophil Elastase and Matrix Metalloprotease Levels in the Lung (53 citations)
  • Gamma tocopherol-enriched supplement reduces sputum eosinophilia and endotoxin-induced sputum neutrophilia in volunteers with asthma. (24 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Inflammation

His primary areas of study are Lung, Immunology, COPD, Internal medicine and Mucin. His Lung research incorporates themes from Inflammation, Clone, Cystic fibrosis and Airway. His research on Immunology frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Cell signaling.

His COPD research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Rate ratio, Propensity score matching, Asthma, Aspirin and Confounding. His research investigates the connection between Internal medicine and topics such as Gastroenterology that intersect with issues in Lung health, Induced sputum, Eosinophilia and Sputum Cytology. His Mucin study incorporates themes from gamma-Tocopherol, Proteome, Mucociliary clearance, Pharmacology and Nicotine.
