Abstract

Lipidomics is a lipid-targeted metabolomics approach aiming at comprehensive analysis of lipids in biological systems. Recent technological progresses in mass spectrometry, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and chromatography have significantly enhanced the developments and applications of metabolic profiling of lipids in more complex biological samples. As many diseases reveal a notable change in lipid profiles compared with that of healthy people, lipidomics have also been broadly introduced to scientific research on diseases. Exploration of lipid biochemistry by lipidomics approach will not only provide insights into specific roles of lipid molecular species in health and disease, but it will also support the identification of potential biomarkers for establishing preventive or therapeutic approaches for human health. This chapter aims to illustrate how lipidomics can contribute for understanding the biological mechanisms inherent to schizophrenia and why lipids are relevant biomarkers of schizophrenia. The application of lipidomics in clinical studies has the potential to provide new insights into lipid profiling and pathophysiological mechanisms underlying schizophrenia. The future perspectives of lipidomics in mental disorders are also discussed herein.

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 13 September 2017.
All research outputs
#9,031,963
of 11,761,635 outputs
Outputs from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#1,630
of 3,121 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#214,745
of 327,286 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#272
of 584 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,761,635 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 3,121 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.3. This one is in the 42nd percentile – i.e., 42% 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 327,286 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 29th percentile – i.e., 29% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 584 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.
