Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Bacteria
  • Internal medicine

Her primary areas of investigation include Microbiology, Immune system, Immunology, Lactobacillus casei and Immunity. The Microbiology study combines topics in areas such as Lactobacillus acidophilus, Antigen, Lactobacillus, Antibody and Lactic acid. Her research integrates issues of Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Respiratory tract, Respiratory system and Streptococcus pneumoniae in her study of Immune system.

Immunology is a component of her Acquired immune system and Nasal administration studies. Her work deals with themes such as Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Inflammation and Bronchoalveolar lavage, Lung, which intersect with Nasal administration. She works mostly in the field of Lactobacillus casei, limiting it down to concerns involving Oral administration and, occasionally, White blood cell, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Cystic fibrosis.

Her most cited work include:

  • Immune system stimulation by probiotics. (340 citations)
  • Study of the possible mechanisms involved in the mucosal immune system activation by lactic acid bacteria. (175 citations)
  • Immunoadjuvant activity of oral Lactobacillus casei: influence of dose on the secretory immune response and protective capacity in intestinal infections. (155 citations)

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

Her primary areas of study are Immunology, Microbiology, Immune system, Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Streptococcus pneumoniae. Her Immunology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Lactobacillus casei and Respiratory system. She combines subjects such as Probiotic, Lactobacillus, Bacteria, Lactococcus lactis and Antibody with her study of Microbiology.

Her Immune system research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cytokine, Respiratory tract, Pneumococcal pneumonia and Antigen. Her Lactobacillus rhamnosus study combines topics in areas such as Peptidoglycan, Taste and TLR3. Her Streptococcus pneumoniae research integrates issues from Respiratory infection, Immunization, Immunoglobulin A and Vaccination.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (110.71%)
  • Microbiology (94.64%)
  • Immune system (83.93%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Immunology (110.71%)
  • Lactobacillus rhamnosus (46.43%)
  • Microbiology (94.64%)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Immunology, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Microbiology, Immune system and Innate immune system. Her study in Immunology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Lactobacillus casei, Receptor and Respiratory infection, Respiratory system. Her Lactobacillus rhamnosus research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Streptococcus pneumoniae, Antigen, Peptidoglycan, Adjuvant and Antibody.

Susana Alvarez interconnects Probiotic and Bacteria in the investigation of issues within Microbiology. Her work in Immune system covers topics such as Respiratory tract which are related to areas like Superinfection and Pneumococcal pneumonia. Many of her research projects under Innate immune system are closely connected to Myelopoiesis with Myelopoiesis, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.

Between 2015 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Respiratory Commensal Bacteria Corynebacterium pseudodiphtheriticum Improves Resistance of Infant Mice to Respiratory Syncytial Virus and Streptococcus pneumoniae Superinfection. (56 citations)
  • Respiratory antiviral immunity and immunobiotics: Beneficial effects on inflammation-coagulation interaction during influenza virus infection (37 citations)
  • Respiratory antiviral immunity and immunobiotics: Beneficial effects on inflammation-coagulation interaction during influenza virus infection (37 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Bacteria
  • Internal medicine

Her primary scientific interests are in Immune system, Immunology, Microbiology, Respiratory tract and Lactobacillus rhamnosus. Her work on Pneumococcal pneumonia and Streptococcus pneumoniae as part of general Microbiology research is often related to Gene chip analysis, thus linking different fields of science. Her Pneumococcal pneumonia research includes elements of Lung and Respiratory system.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Innate immune system and Immunity in addition to Respiratory tract. Her Innate immune system research incorporates themes from Acquired immune system, Virus, Vaccination, Virology and Disease. The various areas that Susana Alvarez examines in her Lactobacillus rhamnosus study include Chemokine, TLR3 and Intraepithelial lymphocyte.
