Abstract

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a virus that usually affects people with reduced immunity. In recent years, this virus has been thought to cause repeated inflammation in the eye, in otherwise healthy people. This form of inflammation can cause damage to the cornea (the outer layer of the eye) or to the optic nerve by causing secondary glaucoma, or to both, leading to visual loss. Our primary objective was to assess the effects of drug therapies for the treatment of CMV-associated anterior segment inflammation.Our secondary objective was to determine the optimal dose and duration of treatment with respect to recurrence and adverse effects. We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) (which contains the Cochrane Eyes and Vision Trials Register) (2017, Issue 2), MEDLINE Ovid (1946 to 21 March 2017), Embase Ovid (1947 to 21 March 2017), the ISRCTN registry (www.isrctn.com/editAdvancedSearch); searched 21 March 2017, ClinicalTrials.gov (www.clinicaltrials.gov); searched 21 March 2017, and the WHO International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (ICTRP) (www.who.int/ictrp/search/en); searched 21 March 2017. We did not use any date or language restrictions in the electronic searches for trials. Two review authors independently reviewed the titles and abstracts. We searched for randomised controlled trials (RCTs) on the management of CMV-associated anterior segment inflammation. We planned to have two review authors independently extract data from reports of included studies and analyse data based on methods expected by Cochrane. We did not identify any RCTs that met our inclusion criteria. There is currently no good-quality evidence on the management of CMV-associated anterior segment inflammation. Ideally, a well-designed RCT is needed to evaluate the effectiveness of different anti-CMV medications as well as the optimal dose and duration.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 12. 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 May 2020.
All research outputs
#2,122,946
of 18,511,551 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#4,764
of 11,840 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#45,932
of 281,287 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#138
of 259 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 18,511,551 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 88th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 11,840 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 26.0. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 59% 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 281,287 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 83% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 259 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 47th percentile – i.e., 47% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
