Abstract

This report will detail a case of immune-mediated encephalitis in the context of daclizumab therapy. Daclizumab is a humanised monoclonal antibody which, prior to its recent worldwide withdrawal due to safety concerns, was utilised as a disease-modifying therapy in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. The withdrawal of this therapy was prompted by concerns over 12 cases of serious immune-mediated adverse reactions in the central nervous system. We report an additional case, including clinical data and results of neuroimaging, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) examination and brain biopsy.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 18. 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 05 September 2018.
All research outputs
#737,842
of 12,247,570 outputs
Outputs from Multiple Sclerosis (13524585)
#148
of 2,346 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#29,089
of 255,611 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Multiple Sclerosis (13524585)
#5
of 40 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,247,570 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 93rd percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,346 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.3. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 93% 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 255,611 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 40 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 87% of its contemporaries.
