Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
  • Virus
  • Internal medicine

Her primary areas of study are Immunology, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Virology, Viral load and Viral disease. Her study in Immunology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both RNA and Transmission. The Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome study which covers Semen that intersects with Physiology and Reverse transcriptase.

Her study in Virus and Zidovudine is carried out as part of her Virology studies. The various areas that Susan A. Fiscus examines in her Viral load study include Chronic infection and Blood plasma. Her Viral disease study which covers Immunopathology that intersects with CD8, CXCR4, CD28 and Longitudinal study.

Her most cited work include:

  • Reduction of concentration of HIV-1 in semen after treatment of urethritis: implications for prevention of sexual transmission of HIV-1 (761 citations)
  • The relation of virologic and immunologic markers to clinical outcomes after nucleoside therapy in HIV-infected adults with 200 to 500 CD4 cells per cubic millimeter (453 citations)
  • Maternal or Infant Antiretroviral Drugs to Reduce HIV-1 Transmission (375 citations)

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

Susan A. Fiscus spends much of her time researching Virology, Immunology, Viral load, Virus and Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Her research investigates the connection between Virology and topics such as RNA that intersect with problems in Human Immunodeficiency Virus RNA. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Internal medicine and Sexual transmission.

Her studies deal with areas such as Nucleic acid amplification technique, Cerebrospinal fluid, Saliva, Genotype and Blood plasma as well as Viral load. Her research investigates the link between Virus and topics such as Antigen that cross with problems in P24 antigen. Her work carried out in the field of Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome brings together such families of science as Semen and Disease.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (51.11%)
  • Immunology (43.56%)
  • Viral load (33.78%)

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

  • Viral load (33.78%)
  • Immunology (43.56%)
  • Virology (51.11%)

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

Her primary scientific interests are in Viral load, Immunology, Virology, Pediatrics and Transmission. Her Immunology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Internal medicine, Plasma samples and Blood plasma. Her Virology study combines topics in areas such as RNA, TaqMan, Antibody and Immune activation.

Her Pediatrics study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Nevirapine, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Antiretroviral therapy and Randomized controlled trial. Her research in Nevirapine intersects with topics in Lamivudine, Zidovudine and Breast feeding. Her Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome research includes elements of Concordance and Health facility.

Between 2011 and 2020, her most popular works were:

  • Benefits and Risks of Antiretroviral Therapy for Perinatal HIV Prevention (169 citations)
  • Detection of Acute HIV Infection: A Field Evaluation of the Determine® HIV-1/2 Ag/Ab Combo Test (106 citations)
  • Efficacy and safety of three antiretroviral regimens for initial treatment of HIV-1: a randomized clinical trial in diverse multinational settings. (103 citations)

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

  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
  • Virus
  • Internal medicine

Susan A. Fiscus mainly focuses on Pediatrics, Immunology, Virology, Viral load and Randomized controlled trial. The study incorporates disciplines such as Nevirapine, Dried blood, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and Transmission in addition to Pediatrics. Susan A. Fiscus has included themes like Breastfeeding, Lamivudine, Zidovudine and Breast feeding in her Nevirapine study.

Susan A. Fiscus is interested in BDNA test, which is a field of Immunology. As part of the same scientific family, she usually focuses on Virology, concentrating on Antibody and intersecting with Virus and Viral replication. Her Viral load research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Whole blood, Trial registration, Population study, Blood plasma and Dried Blood Spot Testing.
