Abstract

Germline loss-of-function mutations in PALB2 are known to confer a predisposition to breast cancer. However, the lifetime risk of breast cancer that is conferred by such mutations remains unknown.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 792. 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 30 July 2019.
All research outputs
#6,421
of 13,464,110 outputs
Outputs from New England Journal of Medicine
#330
of 25,509 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#89
of 192,543 outputs
Outputs of similar age from New England Journal of Medicine
#3
of 355 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,464,110 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 99th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 25,509 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 62.9. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 98% 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 192,543 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 99% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 355 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% of its contemporaries.
