Abstract

Prevention of relapses is a major issue in the management of Crohn's disease. Corticosteroids, the mainstay of treatment of acute exacerbations are not effective in the maintenance of remission and its chronic use is limited by numerous adverse events. A number of randomised controlled trials comparing various 5-ASA agents with either placebo or other drugs have had conflicting results.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 19 October 2012.
All research outputs
#7,562,096
of 12,101,174 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#6,465
of 7,978 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#68,249
of 121,590 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#59
of 80 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,101,174 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 7,978 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 14.6. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 121,590 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 32nd percentile – i.e., 32% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 80 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
