Matters Arising: Zhu et al, "A novel gene variation of TNFα associated with ankylosing spondylitis: A reconfirmed study"
Brown, M A (2008) Matters Arising: Zhu et al, "A novel gene variation of TNFα associated with ankylosing spondylitis: A reconfirmed study". Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases, 67(3), p. 434.
In a recently published study1 involving 79 ankylosing spondylitis (AS) patients and 132 unrelated healthy blood donors, Zhu et al report association of a tumour necrosis factor α (TNFα) single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), rs1799724, with AS.1 I have many concerns with this paper and its conclusions...
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
