Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Virus
  • Gene
  • Internal medicine

His primary scientific interests are in Virology, Mimivirus, Giant Virus, Mimiviridae and Marseilleviridae. Virus is the focus of his Virology research. Philippe Colson has included themes like Hydroxychloroquine, Coxiella burnetii, Doxycycline and Azithromycin in his Virus study.

Philippe Colson works mostly in the field of Mimivirus, limiting it down to concerns involving Acanthamoeba and, occasionally, Phylogenetics and Lineage. His studies examine the connections between Giant Virus and genetics, as well as such issues in Asfarviridae, with regards to Metagenomics. The Marseilleviridae study combines topics in areas such as Marseillevirus and Mamavirus.

His most cited work include:

  • Hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin as a treatment of COVID-19: results of an open-label non-randomized clinical trial. (2594 citations)
  • New insights on the antiviral effects of chloroquine against coronavirus: what to expect for COVID-19? (491 citations)
  • Pig liver sausage as a source of hepatitis E virus transmission to humans. (477 citations)

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

Philippe Colson focuses on Virology, Giant Virus, Virus, Genetics and Genome. His Virology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Immunology and Genotype, Hepatitis E virus. His work carried out in the field of Hepatitis E virus brings together such families of science as Epidemiology, Hepatitis E, Zoonosis and Hepatitis.

His study looks at the intersection of Giant Virus and topics like Mimivirus with Acanthamoeba and Evolutionary biology. Philippe Colson is interested in Viral load, which is a field of Virus. His research brings together the fields of Hydroxychloroquine and Viral load.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (54.27%)
  • Giant Virus (20.11%)
  • Virus (17.63%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Virology (54.27%)
  • Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (8.26%)
  • Coronavirus disease 2019 (7.16%)

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

His main research concerns Virology, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Coronavirus disease 2019, Genome and Internal medicine. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction, Complementary DNA, DNA sequencing, Peripheral blood and Coronavirus. His Genome research includes elements of Virus, Clade and Genotype.

His Internal medicine study incorporates themes from Viral load and Azithromycin. His Azithromycin study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Young adult, Clinical trial and Viral shedding. His Hydroxychloroquine research includes themes of Observational study and Randomized controlled trial.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin as a treatment of COVID-19: results of an open-label non-randomized clinical trial. (2594 citations)
  • New insights on the antiviral effects of chloroquine against coronavirus: what to expect for COVID-19? (491 citations)
  • Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine as Available Weapons to Fight COVID-19 (465 citations)

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

  • Virus
  • Gene
  • Internal medicine

Philippe Colson spends much of his time researching Coronavirus disease 2019, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Hydroxychloroquine, Internal medicine and Virology. His Hydroxychloroquine research incorporates elements of Observational study, Randomized controlled trial, Virus, Pandemic and Azithromycin. His Virus study combines topics in areas such as Genome project and Genome.

His research integrates issues of Young adult and Clinical trial in his study of Azithromycin. His Internal medicine research integrates issues from Point of care, Point-of-care testing and Viral load. His study in Virology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both DNA sequencing, Coronavirus and Pneumonia.
