Abstract

The most common external ocular viral infections are caused by several human adenovirus (HAdV) types. Ganciclovir has been reported to inhibit cytomegalovirus, herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2, varicella zoster virus, and Epstein-Barr virus. Ganciclovir ophthalmic gel, 0.15% (Virgan®) is commercially available for cytomegalovirus or herpes virus keratitis. However its inhibitory activity against HAdV is reported only for types 2 and 5. We investigated the antiadenoviral activity of ganciclovir in vitro in several common types currently inducing keratoconjunctivitis.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. 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 26 March 2015.
All research outputs
#3,288,221
of 4,925,544 outputs
Outputs from Clinical Ophthalmology
#411
of 963 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#85,618
of 135,653 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Clinical Ophthalmology
#24
of 91 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,925,544 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 29th percentile – i.e., 29% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 963 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.4. This one is in the 45th percentile – i.e., 45% 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 135,653 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 33rd percentile – i.e., 33% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 91 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 64% of its contemporaries.
