Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Disease

His scientific interests lie mostly in Leishmaniasis, Visceral leishmaniasis, Immunology, Virology and Antigen. His study in Leishmaniasis is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Transmission, Serology and Epidemiology. His Visceral leishmaniasis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Surgery, Internal medicine, Malnutrition, Risk factor and Leishmania.

His studies deal with areas such as Asymptomatic and Subclinical infection as well as Immunology. His Virology research focuses on Antibody and how it relates to Leishmania major and Northern blot. His research in Antigen intersects with topics in Interferon gamma and Tuberculosis.

His most cited work include:

  • New Perspectives on a Subclinical Form of Visceral Leishmaniasis (413 citations)
  • Molecular characterization of a kinesin-related antigen of Leishmania chagasi that detects specific antibody in African and American visceral leishmaniasis. (367 citations)
  • Identification of differentially expressed genes in human prostate cancer using subtraction and microarray. (354 citations)

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

Roberto Badaró focuses on Immunology, Leishmaniasis, Visceral leishmaniasis, Virology and Antigen. His work deals with themes such as Gastroenterology and Internal medicine, which intersect with Immunology. His Leishmaniasis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Immunotherapy, Disease and Leishmania.

His Visceral leishmaniasis study also includes

  • Subclinical infection which connect with Asymptomatic,
  • Interleukin 2 most often made with reference to Interferon gamma. Roberto Badaró has researched Virology in several fields, including Leishmania infantum, Serology and Leishmania chagasi. His study looks at the relationship between Antigen and topics such as Antibody, which overlap with Trypanosoma cruzi.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (51.30%)
  • Leishmaniasis (38.96%)
  • Visceral leishmaniasis (37.01%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2020)?

  • Immunology (51.30%)
  • Virology (27.27%)
  • Pediatrics (4.55%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Virology, Pediatrics, Leishmaniasis and Internal medicine. His study in Immunology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cross-sectional study, Hiv infected patients and Leishmania. His work carried out in the field of Leishmania brings together such families of science as Visceral leishmaniasis and Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome.

The concepts of his Virology study are interwoven with issues in Chemokine, Leishmania braziliensis, Skin ulcer and Immunopathology. In his works, Roberto Badaró performs multidisciplinary study on Leishmaniasis and Liposomal amphotericin. His work in the fields of Internal medicine, such as Cardiac status, overlaps with other areas such as Beating heart surgery.

Between 2011 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Zika Virus and the Guillain–Barré Syndrome — Case Series from Seven Countries (202 citations)
  • Comparative Study of rK39 Leishmania Antigen for Serodiagnosis of Visceral Leishmaniasis: Systematic Review with Meta-Analysis (94 citations)
  • Increased rates of Guillain-Barré syndrome associated with Zika virus outbreak in the Salvador metropolitan area, Brazil. (59 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Cancer

Leishmania, Immunology, Visceral leishmaniasis, Guillain-Barre syndrome and Zika virus are his primary areas of study. The various areas that Roberto Badaró examines in his Leishmania study include Serology and Leishmaniasis. Roberto Badaró performs integrative Leishmaniasis and Iris research in his work.

As part of one scientific family, Roberto Badaró deals mainly with the area of Guillain-Barre syndrome, narrowing it down to issues related to the Outbreak, and often Epidemiology and Pediatrics. The subject of his Transmission research is within the realm of Virology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Gold standard, Meta-analysis, Cochrane Library and Antigen in addition to Virology.
