Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia. It is characterized by extracellular deposition of a specific protein, beta-amyloid peptide fibrils, and is accompanied by extensive loss of neurons in the brains of affected individuals. Although the pathophysiologic mechanism is not fully established, inflammation appears to be involved. Neuroinflammation has been known to play a critical role in the pathogenesis of chronic neurodegenerative disease in general, and in AD in particular. Numerous studies show the presence of a number of markers of inflammation in the AD brain: elevated inflammatory cytokines and chemokines, and accumulation of activated microglia in the damaged regions. Epidemiological studies have shown that long-term use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs suppresses the progression of AD and delays its onset, suggesting that there is a close correlation between neuroinflammation and AD pathogenesis. The aim of this review is (1) to assess the association between neuroinflammation and AD through discussion of a variety of experimental and clinical studies on AD and (2) to review treatment strategies designed to treat or prevent AD.

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 18 July 2011.
All research outputs
of 12,646,662 outputs
Outputs from Archives of Pharmacal Research
of 913 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 83,460 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Archives of Pharmacal Research
of 7 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,646,662 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 78th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 913 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.4. This one has done well, scoring higher than 80% 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 83,460 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 76% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 7 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 4 of them.
