Abstract

Efficacious new drugs to treat hepatitis C virus infection offer the potential to halt this epidemic. But their exorbitant cost may prove prohibitive for most patients in need. Strong patient and government advocacy will be necessary to ensure that accessibility to treatments is a right, not a privilege.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 12. 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 06 May 2014.
All research outputs
#1,387,486
of 13,909,836 outputs
Outputs from Nature Medicine
#2,483
of 6,718 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#21,608
of 191,306 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Nature Medicine
#46
of 97 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,909,836 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 90th percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 6,718 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 37.0. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 63% 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 191,306 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 88% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 97 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 52% of its contemporaries.
