Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Cancer
  • Immune system

Silvano Ferrini mainly investigates Molecular biology, Immunology, Cancer research, Cytokine and T cell. His Molecular biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cell culture, Antigen, Monocyte, CD3 and T-cell receptor. As part of his studies on Immunology, Silvano Ferrini frequently links adjacent subjects like Cytotoxic T cell.

He has researched Cancer research in several fields, including Carcinogenesis, Cancer stem cell, Stem cell, Genetic enhancement and Tumor progression. His Cytokine study incorporates themes from Chronic lymphocytic leukemia and Cell growth. His T cell research integrates issues from Human leukocyte antigen, CTL*, Cytolysis and Cell biology.

His most cited work include:

  • Enhancement of the antitumor properties of interleukin-2 by its targeted delivery to the tumor blood vessel extracellular matrix (271 citations)
  • HIV-1 Tat protein mimicry of chemokines (266 citations)
  • Cytolytic T lymphocytes displaying natural killer (NK)-like activity: expression of NK-related functional receptors for HLA class I molecules (p58 and CD94) and inhibitory effect on the TCR-mediated target cell lysis or lymphokine production (207 citations)

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

Silvano Ferrini focuses on Cancer research, Molecular biology, Immunology, Antigen and Monoclonal antibody. The Cancer research study combines topics in areas such as Interleukin 12, ALCAM, Pathology, Neuroblastoma and Regulation of gene expression. His Molecular biology research includes themes of Cell culture, T cell, T-cell receptor, Lymphokine and CD3.

His Cytokine, Immunotherapy, Immune system, Interleukin 15 and Interleukin 21 investigations are all subjects of Immunology research. He has included themes like Signal transduction and In vivo in his Cytokine study. His biological study deals with issues like Interleukin 2, which deal with fields such as Cytolysis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cancer research (35.22%)
  • Molecular biology (35.22%)
  • Immunology (34.82%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Cancer research (35.22%)
  • Immunology (34.82%)
  • Cytokine (15.79%)

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

Cancer research, Immunology, Cytokine, Immunotherapy and Neuroblastoma are his primary areas of study. Silvano Ferrini works in the field of Cancer research, focusing on Melanoma in particular. The concepts of his Cytokine study are interwoven with issues in Human leukocyte antigen and Signal transduction.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cytotoxic T cell, Monoclonal antibody and T cell. In his work, Molecular biology is strongly intertwined with SOCS3, which is a subfield of Interleukin 27. As a part of the same scientific study, Silvano Ferrini usually deals with the Molecular biology, concentrating on Carcinogenesis and frequently concerns with microRNA.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Context-dependent role of IL-18 in cancer biology and counter-regulation by IL-18BP (77 citations)
  • IL-27 induces the expression of IDO and PD-L1 in human cancer cells. (64 citations)
  • The biology of uveal melanoma (61 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Cancer
  • Immune system

Silvano Ferrini mainly investigates Cancer research, Immunology, Cancer immunotherapy, Cancer and Immunotherapy. His biological study focuses on Melanoma. Silvano Ferrini studies Immunology, focusing on Immune checkpoint in particular.

His research in Cancer immunotherapy intersects with topics in Natural killer T cell, Lymphokine-activated killer cell and Interleukin 15. His studies deal with areas such as Monoclonal antibody, Treatment failure, Immune system and Drug resistance as well as Cancer. His Immunotherapy study deals with Cytokine intersecting with Glycoprotein 130, Cytotoxic T cell and Cell biology.
