Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Cytokine
  • Internal medicine

Her primary scientific interests are in Immunology, Trophoblast, Immune system, Receptor and Placenta. The Immunology study combines topics in areas such as Secretion, Fetus and Preeclampsia. Her work carried out in the field of Trophoblast brings together such families of science as Internal medicine, Cytokine, Cell biology, Innate immune system and Programmed cell death.

Her Immune system research integrates issues from Macrophage, Apoptotic cell clearance and Monocyte. Her study in Placenta is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Autocrine signalling and Paracrine signalling. Her Inflammation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Antiphospholipid syndrome and Beta 2-Glycoprotein I.

Her most cited work include:

  • Inflammation and pregnancy: the role of the immune system at the implantation site. (523 citations)
  • TLR-4 signaling promotes tumor growth and paclitaxel chemoresistance in ovarian cancer. (388 citations)
  • Macrophages and Apoptotic Cell Clearance During Pregnancy (243 citations)

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

Trophoblast, Immunology, Internal medicine, Placenta and Endocrinology are her primary areas of study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cytokine, Antiphospholipid syndrome, Preeclampsia, Receptor and Cell biology in addition to Trophoblast. Her Immunology study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Fetus.

In her research on the topic of Placenta, Interleukin is strongly related with Andrology. Her Endocrinology research includes elements of Cancer research, Antibody and Placentation. Her Inflammation study combines topics in areas such as Secretion and Chorioamnionitis.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Trophoblast (52.17%)
  • Immunology (51.55%)
  • Internal medicine (28.57%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Immunology (51.55%)
  • Inflammation (22.36%)
  • Trophoblast (52.17%)

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

Vikki M. Abrahams mostly deals with Immunology, Inflammation, Trophoblast, Inflammasome and Chemistry. Her research links Microbiome with Immunology. Her Inflammation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Secretion, Chorioamnionitis, Lipopolysaccharide and Pathophysiology.

Her Trophoblast research includes themes of Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Preeclampsia and Immune system. The various areas that Vikki M. Abrahams examines in her Inflammasome study include MERTK and Cell biology. She has researched Placenta in several fields, including Flavivirus and Virology.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • A Role for the Inflammasome in Spontaneous Labor at Term. (64 citations)
  • A Role for the Inflammasome in Spontaneous Preterm Labor With Acute Histologic Chorioamnionitis. (59 citations)
  • Zika virus infection of Hofbauer cells (54 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Cytokine
  • Internal medicine

Her primary areas of investigation include Inflammasome, Immunology, Caspase 1, Chorioamnionitis and Extramural. Vikki M. Abrahams combines subjects such as Trophoblast and MERTK with her study of Inflammasome. Vikki M. Abrahams has included themes like Lipopolysaccharide, Innate immune system, Immune system and Cancer research in her MERTK study.

Molecular mimicry, Autoantibody, Autoimmune disease, B cell and Antigen are among the areas of Immunology where Vikki M. Abrahams concentrates her study. Her work deals with themes such as Pyrin domain, NOD2, Caspase, Andrology and Interleukin, which intersect with Caspase 1. Her Inflammation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Secretion, Endocrinology and Uric acid.
