The vast majority of Parkinson's disease (PD) cases are of sporadic origin and despite extensive research in recent years, the etiology still remains unclear. Several current case control studies are aiming to characterize a putative PD-specific composition of the gut microbiome, reflecting the potential relevance of microbiota in the pathogenesis of PD. Although methodologies and cohort sizes differed, the currently available studies showed reproducible or consistent results in terms of PD-specific alterations to the intestinal bacteria. By applying metagenomic sequencing procedures, it is even possible to distinguish PD cases from healthy individuals at a very early disease stage by means of individually modified microbiota. Among others, microbiota that are associated with an altered intestinal barrier or immune function, such as Akkermansia, Lactobacillus, Faecalibacterium and Prevotella were significantly over-represented or under-represented. There may even be a prodromal microbiome, as a comparable microbial shift is also found in patients with rapid eye movement (REM) sleep behavior disorder (RBD), a risk factor for the later development of synucleinopathies, such as PD.

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 13 September 2019.
All research outputs
of 13,617,861 outputs
Outputs from Nervenarzt
of 473 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 264,707 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Nervenarzt
of 14 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,617,861 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 473 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.4. This one has done well, scoring higher than 79% 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 264,707 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 64% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 14 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 85% of its contemporaries.
