Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Echinococcus multilocularis, Feces, Veterinary medicine, Virology and Antigen. His Echinococcus multilocularis study improves the overall literature in Echinococcosis. His Feces study combines topics in areas such as Anthelmintic, Juvenile, Cestoda and Parasitism.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Helminths, Echinococcus multilocularis infection and Vole in addition to Veterinary medicine. His research integrates issues of Seroepidemiologic Studies, Serology and Helminthiasis in his study of Virology. His Antigen study incorporates themes from Antibody and Immune system.

His most cited work include:

  • Molecular phylogeny of the genus Taenia (Cestoda: Taeniidae): proposals for the resurrection of Hydatigera Lamarck, 1816 and the creation of a new genus Versteria. (86 citations)
  • Preliminary study of the role of red foxes in Echinococcus multilocularis transmission in the urban area of Sapporo, Japan. (66 citations)
  • Time course of coproantigen excretion in Echinococcus multilocularis infections in foxes and an alternative definitive host, golden hamsters (60 citations)

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

Yuzaburo Oku spends much of his time researching Echinococcus multilocularis, Veterinary medicine, Zoology, Taenia taeniaeformis and Pathology. Yuzaburo Oku interconnects Echinococcus, Feces, Antigen and Virology in the investigation of issues within Echinococcus multilocularis. His work focuses on many connections between Antigen and other disciplines, such as Immune system, that overlap with his field of interest in Metacestode.

His Veterinary medicine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Helminths and Polymerase chain reaction. His Zoology research incorporates elements of Ecology and Intermediate host. Yuzaburo Oku has researched Taenia taeniaeformis in several fields, including Larva, Molecular biology, Infectivity, Taenia and Hyperplasia.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Echinococcus multilocularis (39.56%)
  • Veterinary medicine (26.92%)
  • Zoology (15.93%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2017)?

  • Echinococcus multilocularis (39.56%)
  • Veterinary medicine (26.92%)
  • Molecular biology (8.79%)

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

Yuzaburo Oku mainly focuses on Echinococcus multilocularis, Veterinary medicine, Molecular biology, Antigen and Metacestode. Echinococcosis covers Yuzaburo Oku research in Echinococcus multilocularis. His Veterinary medicine research incorporates themes from Feces, Nodular lesions and Restriction fragment length polymorphism, Polymerase chain reaction.

His Molecular biology study combines topics in areas such as Peptide sequence, Gene expression, Gene, RNA interference and Echinococcus granulosus. The concepts of his Antigen study are interwoven with issues in Antibody and Immune system. His studies in Metacestode integrate themes in fields like Cysticercosis, Oncosphere, Tetraspanin, Vaccination and Helminthiasis.

Between 2008 and 2017, his most popular works were:

  • Molecular phylogeny of the genus Taenia (Cestoda: Taeniidae): proposals for the resurrection of Hydatigera Lamarck, 1816 and the creation of a new genus Versteria. (86 citations)
  • Echinococcus multilocularis primary cells: Improved isolation, small-scale cultivation and RNA interference (51 citations)
  • Gene silencing in Echinococcus multilocularis protoscoleces using RNA interference (41 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Echinococcus multilocularis, Echinococcus, Metacestode, Immunology and Echinococcosis. His Echinococcus multilocularis research includes elements of Multiplex polymerase chain reaction, Feces, Gene expression, Molecular biology and RNA interference. His research in Echinococcus intersects with topics in Ascaris, Trichuris vulpis, Dipylidium caninum, Toxocara canis and Spirocerca lupi.

His Metacestode research incorporates themes from Oncosphere, Tetraspanin, Immune system, Vaccination and Helminthiasis. His work on Antigen, Adjuvant, Immunization and Freund's adjuvant as part of general Immunology study is frequently connected to CpG Oligodeoxynucleotide, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. The Echinococcosis study combines topics in areas such as Cysticercosis, Antibody, Intermediate host and Virology.
