Abstract

Since detection of the prion protein gene (PRNP) more than 30 mutations have been discovered. Some have only been found in single case reports without known intrafamilial accumulation or neuropathological proof so that the causal connection between mutation and disease could not be proved. Those patients often present atypical clinical phenotypes, and it is not unusual that they are classified as diseases other than Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD).

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 09 March 2013.
All research outputs
#11,104,730
of 12,487,420 outputs
Outputs from Dementia & Geriatric Cognitive Disorders
#604
of 671 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#119,334
of 142,154 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Dementia & Geriatric Cognitive Disorders
#1
of 3 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,487,420 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 671 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.6. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% 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 142,154 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 3 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
