Abstract

Chronic diseases, also known as noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), are complex disorders that last for long periods of time and progress slowly. They currently account for the major cause of death worldwide with an alarming increase in rate both in developed and developing countries. In this chapter, the principal metabolomic-based investigations on chronic diseases (cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and respiratory chronic diseases) and their major risk factors (particularly overweight/obesity) are described by focusing both on metabolites and metabolic pathways. Additional information on the contribution of metabolomics strategies in the ambit of the biomarker discovery for NCDs is also provided by exploring the major prospective studies of the last years (i.e., Framingham Heart Study, EPIC, MONICA, KORA, FINRIK, ECLIPSE). The metabolic signature of diseases, which arises from the metabolomic-based investigation, is therefore depicted in the chapter by pointing out the potential of metabolomics to explain the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying a disease, as well as to propose new therapeutic targets for alternative treatments.

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 04 February 2017.
All research outputs
#11,437,853
of 20,781,426 outputs
Outputs from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#1,525
of 4,630 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#170,117
of 387,311 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#182
of 664 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 20,781,426 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 4,630 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.4. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 66% 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 387,311 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 55% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 664 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 72% of its contemporaries.
