Abstract

The review focuses on the current knowledge and the most pertinent hypotheses regarding the local host immune response as the key factor for the pathogenesis of implant-associated infections. Although bacterial biofilms have long been recognized as causative agents, the link between the infection and the devastating inflammatory response, particularly the localized tissue destruction and bone degradation is less well understood. Understanding these consequences of infection, however, is of utmost importance, because suppressing inflammation and preventing bone destruction could be a novel, alternative therapeutic option in cases when eradicating the infections fails.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. 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 10 November 2016.
All research outputs
#1,691,937
of 8,614,122 outputs
Outputs from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#334
of 2,665 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#66,233
of 244,934 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#3
of 15 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 8,614,122 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 80th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,665 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.4. This one has done well, scoring higher than 87% 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 244,934 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 72% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 15 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 80% of its contemporaries.
