Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Virus
  • Cancer

William A. Blattner spends much of his time researching Immunology, Virology, Virus, Antibody and Leukemia. His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Internal medicine and Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. His Virology research integrates issues from HIV vaccine and Antigen, Immunogenicity.

His research integrates issues of RNA, Serology and Lymphoma in his study of Virus. William A. Blattner has included themes like Chronic infection and Sequence analysis in his Antibody study. His Leukemia research includes elements of T lymphocyte, Epidemiology, Cohort, Historical Cohort and Multiple myeloma.

His most cited work include:

  • Initial B-Cell Responses to Transmitted Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1: Virion-Binding Immunoglobulin M (IgM) and IgG Antibodies Followed by Plasma Anti-gp41 Antibodies with Ineffective Control of Initial Viremia (484 citations)
  • Natural History of HIV-1 Cell-Free Viremia (239 citations)
  • Human T-Cell Leukemia Virus (HTLV-I) Antibodies in Africa (203 citations)

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

William A. Blattner mainly focuses on Immunology, Virology, Virus, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and Antibody. His Immunology research incorporates elements of Internal medicine and Epidemiology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cervical cancer and Risk factor.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Serology, Immune system and Antigen in addition to Virology. As part of his studies on Virus, William A. Blattner often connects relevant subjects like Disease. His studies deal with areas such as Transmission and Incidence as well as Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (51.30%)
  • Virology (35.94%)
  • Virus (22.90%)

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

  • Internal medicine (16.23%)
  • Immunology (51.30%)
  • Viral load (4.93%)

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

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Immunology, Viral load, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and Men who have sex with men. His studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Neurocognitive, Neuropsychological test and Oncology. His Immunology research incorporates themes from Tropical medicine and Sputum.

William A. Blattner is investigating Virology and Virus as part of his examination of Viral load. William A. Blattner combines subjects such as Infectious disease and Genome with his study of Virology. His work deals with themes such as Cervical cancer, Regimen, Physical therapy and Gerontology, which intersect with Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Cancer Incidence in Nigeria: A Report from Population-based Cancer Registries (142 citations)
  • The immediate effect of the Same-Sex Marriage Prohibition Act on stigma, discrimination, and engagement on HIV prevention and treatment services in men who have sex with men in Nigeria: analysis of prospective data from the TRUST cohort (111 citations)
  • Safety and immunogenicity of an HIV-1 gag DNA vaccine with or without IL-12 and/or IL-15 plasmid cytokine adjuvant in healthy, HIV-1 uninfected adults. (82 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Virus

His scientific interests lie mostly in Viral load, Virology, Immunology, Men who have sex with men and Young adult. His Viral load study is associated with Virus. His work carried out in the field of Virology brings together such families of science as Infectious disease, Attributable risk and Viral phylodynamics.

His Internal medicine research extends to Immunology, which is thematically connected. His Men who have sex with men study incorporates themes from Health care, Psychiatry, Social stigma, Mass screening and Prospective cohort study. His Young adult research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Hiv acquisition, Sampling and Universal coverage.
