Abstract

Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), are fairly common chronic inflammatory conditions of the gastrointestinal tract. Although the exact etiology of IBD remains uncertain, dysfunctional immunoregulation of the gut is believed to be the main culprit. Amongst the immunoregulatory factors, reactive oxygen species are produced in abnormally high levels in IBD. Their destructive effects may contribute to the initiation and/or propagation of the disease. We provided an extensive overview on the evidences from animal and human literature linking oxidative stress to IBD and its activity. Moreover, the effects of antioxidant therapy on IBD patients in randomized, controlled trials were reviewed and the need for further studies elaborated. We also summarized the evidence in support for causality of oxidative stress in IBD.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. 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 19 January 2016.
All research outputs
#3,305,801
of 12,316,589 outputs
Outputs from Digestive Diseases & Sciences
#509
of 2,405 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#38,359
of 149,786 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Digestive Diseases & Sciences
#8
of 24 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,316,589 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 72nd percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,405 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.3. This one has done well, scoring higher than 78% 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 149,786 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 73% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 24 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 66% of its contemporaries.
