Abstract

There is strong evidence of reductions in major vascular events from statins across all cardiovascular risk categories. However, trials of statin therapy have provided conflicting results regarding statin use and type 2 diabetes (T2DM). We aimed to assess the effect of statins on T2DM development.

Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 20. 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 15 February 2020.
All research outputs
#1,894,474
of 25,789,020 outputs
Outputs from BMC Cardiovascular Disorders
#66
of 1,949 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#18,305
of 242,495 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Cardiovascular Disorders
#5
of 26 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 25,789,020 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 92nd percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,949 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.2. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 96% 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 242,495 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 92% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 26 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.
