Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Cytokine

His main research concerns Immunology, Cytokine, Interleukin 17, Immune system and Cell biology. In most of his Immunology studies, his work intersects topics such as Cytotoxic T cell. The Cytokine study which covers Tumor necrosis factor alpha that intersects with Apoptosis.

While the research belongs to areas of Interleukin 17, he spends his time largely on the problem of Interferon gamma, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Graft-versus-host disease. Yoichiro Iwakura has included themes like Receptor, Microbiology, Candida albicans and Arthritis in his Immune system study. His work carried out in the field of Cell biology brings together such families of science as Caspase 1, Cellular differentiation and Nervous system.

His most cited work include:

  • IL-17 Plays an Important Role in the Development of Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis (1326 citations)
  • Suppression of Immune Induction of Collagen-Induced Arthritis in IL-17-Deficient Mice (1165 citations)
  • Th17 functions as an osteoclastogenic helper T cell subset that links T cell activation and bone destruction (1124 citations)

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

Yoichiro Iwakura mainly focuses on Immunology, Cytokine, Immune system, Interleukin 17 and Cell biology. Inflammation, Proinflammatory cytokine, Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Interleukin and Arthritis are among the areas of Immunology where Yoichiro Iwakura concentrates his study. He interconnects Molecular biology and Cancer research in the investigation of issues within Cytokine.

In his study, Immunity is inextricably linked to Microbiology, which falls within the broad field of Immune system. His research integrates issues of T cell and Pathogenesis in his study of Interleukin 17. His T cell study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cytotoxic T cell and Antigen.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (54.97%)
  • Cytokine (20.37%)
  • Immune system (16.93%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Immunology (54.97%)
  • Immune system (16.93%)
  • Inflammation (14.72%)

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

Immunology, Immune system, Inflammation, Receptor and Cell biology are his primary areas of study. His is doing research in Interleukin 17, Cytokine, Chemokine, Proinflammatory cytokine and T cell, both of which are found in Immunology. His research in Immune system intersects with topics in Autoimmune disease and Infiltration.

His Inflammation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Endocrinology, Interleukin and Atopic dermatitis. Yoichiro Iwakura studied Receptor and Microbiology that intersect with Syk and Interferon gamma. The study incorporates disciplines such as Dendritic cell and In vitro in addition to Cell biology.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • IL-17-producing γδ T cells enhance bone regeneration (130 citations)
  • Inhibition of Dectin-1 Signaling Ameliorates Colitis by Inducing Lactobacillus-Mediated Regulatory T Cell Expansion in the Intestine (119 citations)
  • An Ocular Commensal Protects against Corneal Infection by Driving an Interleukin-17 Response from Mucosal γδ T Cells (112 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Cytokine

His primary scientific interests are in Immunology, Inflammation, Interleukin 17, Immune system and Receptor. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Signal transduction and Lung. His Inflammation research includes elements of Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Cell, Macrophage and Lesion.

His Interleukin 17 research incorporates elements of Myofibroblast, Mucosal immunology, Candida albicans, Neutrophil elastase and Transplantation. The concepts of his Immune system study are interwoven with issues in Chronic liver disease, Autoantibody, Scleroderma and Pathogenesis. His Receptor research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Molecular biology, Colitis, Pancreatic cancer and CLEC7A.
