He published 65 peer-reviewed papers as the only or first author, and solved several important scientific/clinical puzzles, such as for example: the peculiar disposition of drugs in cystic fibrosis patients, the dangerous diuretic tienilic acid-coumarin derivatives interaction, the aquarium fish food proteins as the triggering agents in development of autoimmune hepatitis, the possible accumulation of cimetidine after multiple oral doses, the need for calculation of plasma elimination half-life of drugs only after reaching steady-state concentration, and an important role of viral infections in inhibition of xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes leading to development of autoimmune hepatitis. Dr Prandota demonstrated that T. gondii may cause recurrent headaches (Am J Ther 2007,14,63). He is an Editor of more than 35 scientific journals including World J Clin Pediatrics (China), Int J Neurol Res (Hong Kong), Arch Clin Hypertension (India), Global J Gastroenterol Hepatol (UK), and The Open Neurol J (USA). Recently, Dr Prandota et al found the increased seroprevalence of T. gondii in autistic children [Int J Neurol Res 2015,1,102]; suggested that T. gondii may be responsible for development of atherosclerosis (J Cardiol Ther 2017,4,611) and several autoimmune diseases (IJNR 2018,4,379); and elucidated pathomechanisms of several unexplained liver abnormalities (J Gastroenterol Hepatol Res 2019,8,2824).
