Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Antibiotics

His primary scientific interests are in Immunology, BCG vaccine, Tuberculosis, Immunity and Virology. His study brings together the fields of Disease and Immunology. In Tuberculosis, Nigel Curtis works on issues like Interferon gamma, which are connected to Latent tuberculosis.

His Immunity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Heterologous, Gene chip analysis, DNA microarray, Innate immune system and Pandemic. His work focuses on many connections between Heterologous and other disciplines, such as Pneumonia, that overlap with his field of interest in Pediatrics, Respiratory distress, Pregnancy and Bronchitis. His studies deal with areas such as Virulence factor, Mycobacterium bovis, Streptococcal Vaccines and Typing, Microbiology as well as Virology.

His most cited work include:

  • Coronavirus Infections in Children Including COVID-19: An Overview of the Epidemiology, Clinical Features, Diagnosis, Treatment and Prevention Options in Children. (398 citations)
  • Sick and tired: does sleep have a vital role in the immune system? (363 citations)
  • How reliable is a negative blood culture result? Volume of blood submitted for culture in routine practice in a children's hospital. (251 citations)

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

Nigel Curtis focuses on Immunology, Tuberculosis, Pediatrics, Internal medicine and Vaccination. His research on Immunology frequently links to adjacent areas such as Disease. His Tuberculosis study combines topics in areas such as Interferon gamma and Virology.

His study looks at the intersection of Pediatrics and topics like Incidence with Retrospective cohort study. His Internal medicine research includes themes of Antibiotics, Surgery and Cardiology. His Vaccination research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Randomized controlled trial and Immunization.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (48.78%)
  • Tuberculosis (25.51%)
  • Pediatrics (22.45%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Immunology (48.78%)
  • Vaccination (20.20%)
  • Tuberculosis (25.51%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Vaccination, Tuberculosis, Immunity and Immune system. His Immunology research incorporates elements of Active tb and Disease. His study in Vaccination is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Randomized controlled trial and Immunization.

Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Pediatrics and Tuberculosis. His work carried out in the field of Immunity brings together such families of science as Myeloid, Heterologous, CD14, Innate immune system and Pandemic. The Immune system study combines topics in areas such as Epigenetics and Allergy.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Coronavirus Infections in Children Including COVID-19: An Overview of the Epidemiology, Clinical Features, Diagnosis, Treatment and Prevention Options in Children. (398 citations)
  • Considering BCG vaccination to reduce the impact of COVID-19. (150 citations)
  • Considering BCG vaccination to reduce the impact of COVID-19. (150 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Antibiotics

Nigel Curtis mostly deals with Immunology, Immunity, Vaccination, Immune system and Disease. Nigel Curtis interconnects Respiratory tract infections and Tuberculosis in the investigation of issues within Immunology. His work deals with themes such as Acquired immune system, Heterologous, Pandemic, Innate immune system and Antibody, which intersect with Immunity.

The concepts of his Vaccination study are interwoven with issues in Heterologous vaccine and Immunization. His study in Immune system is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Bifidobacterium and Bifidobacteriaceae. His Disease study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Young adult, Lactobacillus, Asthma and Allergy.
