Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Virus
  • Gene
  • DNA

His primary areas of investigation include Virology, Virus, Hepatitis, Immunology and Antibody. His research ties Hepatitis E virus and Virology together. Robert H. Purcell has researched Virus in several fields, including Molecular biology, Genome, Gene and Recombinant virus.

His research in Hepatitis intersects with topics in Hepatitis C, Seroconversion, Blood transfusion and Non b hepatitis. His study focuses on the intersection of Immunology and fields such as Cirrhosis with connections in the field of Hepatocellular carcinoma. His work deals with themes such as Radioimmunoassay, Antigen and Microbiology, which intersect with Antibody.

His most cited work include:

  • An assay for circulating antibodies to a major etiologic virus of human non-A, non-B hepatitis (3065 citations)
  • Detection of antibody to hepatitis C virus in prospectively followed transfusion recipients with acute and chronic non-A, non-B hepatitis (1485 citations)
  • Interrelationship of blood transfusion, non‐A, non‐B hepatitis and hepatocellular carcinoma: Analysis by detection of antibody to hepatitis C virus (1115 citations)

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

Robert H. Purcell mostly deals with Virology, Virus, Hepatitis, Immunology and Antibody. His Virology study combines topics in areas such as Antigen and Hepatitis E virus. Robert H. Purcell works mostly in the field of Virus, limiting it down to concerns involving Molecular biology and, occasionally, RNA.

His Hepatitis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Viral hepatitis, Serology and Outbreak. His Antibody study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Radioimmunoassay and Microbiology. The concepts of his Hepatitis C virus study are interwoven with issues in Hepatitis C and Genotype.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (87.95%)
  • Virus (42.66%)
  • Hepatitis (41.41%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2003-2020)?

  • Virology (87.95%)
  • Antibody (33.93%)
  • Virus (42.66%)

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

His primary areas of study are Virology, Antibody, Virus, Immunology and Hepatitis E virus. Robert H. Purcell combines subjects such as Epitope and Monoclonal antibody with his study of Virology. His Antibody research includes elements of Dengue virus, Antigen and Vaccination.

His Virus study is concerned with the larger field of Genetics. His Hepatitis E virus research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Hepatitis E, Hepatitis B virus DNA polymerase, Viral hepatitis, Caliciviridae and Seroprevalence. As a part of the same scientific study, Robert H. Purcell usually deals with the Hepatitis B virus, concentrating on Hepatitis B and frequently concerns with Hepatitis delta Antigens.

Between 2003 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Hepatitis E: an emerging awareness of an old disease. (548 citations)
  • Monoclonal antibody-mediated enhancement of dengue virus infection in vitro and in vivo and strategies for prevention (285 citations)
  • Acute Hepatitis E Infection Accounts for Some Cases of Suspected Drug-Induced Liver Injury (244 citations)

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

  • Virus
  • Gene
  • DNA

His scientific interests lie mostly in Virology, Virus, Hepatitis E virus, Antibody and Immunology. The various areas that Robert H. Purcell examines in his Virology study include Epitope, Monoclonal antibody and Genotype. His study in Virus is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Molecular biology and RNA virus.

Robert H. Purcell has included themes like Caliciviridae, Rickettsia typhi, Hepatitis E and Zoonosis in his Hepatitis E virus study. His Hepatitis E research incorporates elements of Serology, Seroprevalence and Hepatitis. The Antibody study which covers Immunity that intersects with Norwalk virus and Immunogenicity.
