Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Internal medicine
  • Cytokine

Zahra Toossi mainly investigates Immunology, Tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Immune system and Interferon gamma. Cellular immunity is closely connected to Peripheral blood mononuclear cell in her research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Immunology. Zahra Toossi has researched Tuberculosis in several fields, including Viral disease, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Lentivirus and Virology.

Her Mycobacterium tuberculosis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Microbiology, Monocyte, Interleukin and Transforming growth factor beta. Her study of IL-2 receptor is a part of Immune system. Her study looks at the intersection of Interferon gamma and topics like Interleukin 10 with Immunopathology, Immunity and Endocrinology.

Her most cited work include:

  • Influence of vitamin D deficiency and vitamin D receptor polymorphisms on tuberculosis among Gujarati Asians in west London: a case-control study (636 citations)
  • Depressed T-Cell Interferon-γ Responses in Pulmonary Tuberculosis: Analysis of Underlying Mechanisms and Modulation with Therapy (267 citations)
  • Influence of Polymorphism in the Genes for the Interleukin (IL)-1 Receptor Antagonist and IL-1β on Tuberculosis (259 citations)

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

Zahra Toossi focuses on Immunology, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Tuberculosis, Virology and Peripheral blood mononuclear cell. Her research in Immune system, Interferon gamma, Cytokine, T cell and Antigen are components of Immunology. Her Interferon gamma research incorporates themes from Interferon, IL-2 receptor, Immunity and Interleukin 10.

Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Microbiology, Chemokine, Monocyte and Transforming growth factor beta. Her Tuberculosis study combines topics in areas such as Viral disease, Macrophage, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and Immunodeficiency. While the research belongs to areas of Peripheral blood mononuclear cell, Zahra Toossi spends her time largely on the problem of FOXP3, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Regulatory T cell.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (81.25%)
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis (63.19%)
  • Tuberculosis (61.81%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2008-2016)?

  • Virology (43.75%)
  • Immunology (81.25%)
  • Tuberculosis (61.81%)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Virology, Immunology, Tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Peripheral blood mononuclear cell. Zahra Toossi works mostly in the field of Virology, limiting it down to concerns involving T cell and, occasionally, Cytotoxic T cell and CD8. All of her Immunology and Interferon gamma and Antigen investigations are sub-components of the entire Immunology study.

Her work carried out in the field of Tuberculosis brings together such families of science as Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Interleukin, Cytokine and Intracellular. Her studies deal with areas such as Immunodeficiency, Molecular biology, Monocyte, Transforming growth factor beta and Effector as well as Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Her work deals with themes such as Viral replication and Immune system, FOXP3, which intersect with Peripheral blood mononuclear cell.

Between 2008 and 2016, her most popular works were:

  • Relationship of immunodiagnostic assays for tuberculosis and numbers of circulating CD4+ T-cells in HIV infection (63 citations)
  • Characterizing Traditionally-defined Periodontal Disease in HIV+ Adults (27 citations)
  • Polyfunctional Mycobacterium tuberculosis-specific effector memory CD4+ T cells at sites of pleural TB (21 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Internal medicine
  • Cytokine

Her primary scientific interests are in Immunology, Virology, Tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Immunodeficiency. Her study in Effector, Flow cytometry, Interleukin 2, Immune system and Interferon gamma is carried out as part of her Immunology studies. Her study in Virology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Regulatory T cell, Cytokine, Peripheral blood mononuclear cell, Immunophenotyping and Proinflammatory cytokine.

Her Tuberculosis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Interleukin, Immunopathology, Outpatient clinic and FOXP3. Her research integrates issues of Transforming growth factor, Transforming growth factor beta, Signal transduction and Molecular biology in her study of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Zahra Toossi has included themes like Viral load, Tuberculosis diagnosis, Monocyte, Coinfection and Opportunistic infection in her Immunodeficiency study.
