Abstract

Procaine is a controversial substance which has been used for "antiageing" effects including cognitive improvement for more than 50 years.Preparations which contain procaine as a component are claimed to prevent, reverse and interrupt dementia. Several products are widely promoted and can be purchased "over the counter" outside the US and via the Internet. Procaine preparations are said to be readily available in over 70 countries and to be used by more than 100 million people.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. 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 February 2014.
All research outputs
#12,252,003
of 21,595,315 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#9,605
of 12,080 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#90,129
of 202,637 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#155
of 196 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 21,595,315 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 42nd percentile – i.e., 42% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 12,080 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 29.3. This one is in the 19th percentile – i.e., 19% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
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 202,637 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 54% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 196 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 18th percentile – i.e., 18% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
