What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Antibiotics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Streptococcus pneumoniae, Immunology, Serotype, Microbiology and Vaccination. The Streptococcus pneumoniae study combines topics in areas such as Carriage, Antibiotic resistance and Streptococcaceae. His Immunology research includes themes of Pneumococcal vaccine, Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine, Haemophilus influenzae and Virology.

The concepts of his Serotype study are interwoven with issues in Epidemiology, Pneumococcal serotypes, Pneumonia, Disease and Typing. His research integrates issues of Antimicrobial and Pediatrics in his study of Pneumococcal infections. His work deals with themes such as Internal medicine, Surgery and Drug resistance, which intersect with Antibiotics.

His most cited work include:

  • Reduction of Nasopharyngeal Carriage of Pneumococci during the Second Year of Life by a Heptavalent Conjugate Pneumococcal Vaccine (431 citations)
  • Evaluation and Improvement of Real-Time PCR Assays Targeting lytA, ply, and psaA Genes for Detection of Pneumococcal DNA (390 citations)
  • The fundamental link between pneumococcal carriage and disease (388 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Streptococcus pneumoniae, Immunology, Pediatrics, Microbiology and Serotype. His Streptococcus pneumoniae study incorporates themes from Carriage and Antibiotic resistance. His study looks at the intersection of Pediatrics and topics like Incidence with Meningitis.

His study connects Otitis and Microbiology. His work carried out in the field of Serotype brings together such families of science as Pneumococcal disease, Disease and Colonization. Ron Dagan has researched Antibiotics in several fields, including Internal medicine, Drug resistance and Intensive care medicine.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Streptococcus pneumoniae (36.12%)
  • Immunology (31.49%)
  • Pediatrics (24.33%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Serotype (19.85%)
  • Streptococcus pneumoniae (36.12%)
  • Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (13.43%)

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

Ron Dagan focuses on Serotype, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine, Carriage and Pediatrics. Immunology and Virology are the main topics of his Serotype study. His Immunology research focuses on Disease and how it relates to Pneumococcal serotypes.

Ron Dagan interconnects Penicillin and Haemophilus influenzae in the investigation of issues within Streptococcus pneumoniae. His Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Internal medicine, Pneumonia, Antibiotic resistance and Vaccination. His study focuses on the intersection of Pediatrics and fields such as Incidence with connections in the field of Meningitis, Cohort and Herd immunity.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A Novel Host-Proteome Signature for Distinguishing between Acute Bacterial and Viral Infections (93 citations)
  • Prevention of early episodes of otitis media by pneumococcal vaccines might reduce progression to complex disease. (79 citations)
  • Impact of Widespread Introduction of Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccines on Pneumococcal and Nonpneumococcal Otitis Media (65 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Virus

Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Serotype, Pneumococcal infections and Pediatrics are his primary areas of study. His Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine research incorporates themes from Penicillin, Erythromycin and Internal medicine. His Streptococcus pneumoniae research entails a greater understanding of Microbiology.

His Serotype study is focused on Immunology and Virology. The various areas that Ron Dagan examines in his Pneumococcal infections study include Transmission and Pneumococcal vaccine. His Pediatrics study combines topics in areas such as Incidence, Immunization, Family medicine, Rotavirus and Vaccination.
