Abstract

Psoriasis is a common inflammatory skin disease with a strong genetic component. We analyzed the genomic copy number polymorphism of the beta-defensin region on human chromosome 8 in 179 Dutch individuals with psoriasis and 272 controls and in 319 German individuals with psoriasis and 305 controls. Comparisons in both cohorts showed a significant association between higher genomic copy number for beta-defensin genes and risk of psoriasis.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 23. 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 07 November 2016.
All research outputs
#717,459
of 13,558,376 outputs
Outputs from Nature Genetics
#1,460
of 6,214 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#693,995
of 12,891,395 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Nature Genetics
#1,458
of 6,208 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,558,376 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 94th percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 6,214 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 32.2. This one has done well, scoring higher than 76% of its peers.
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 12,891,395 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 94% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 6,208 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 76% of its contemporaries.
