Olive oil marked its importance not only in commercial terms but also for medical purpose. Mediterranean countries where olive oil is consumed in huge amounts found that they suffer very less with Alzheimers disease (AD).
In terms of action of oleocanthal a phenolic compound which is exclusively present in extra-virgin olive oil, It clears proteins by up regulation of P-glycoprotein (P-gp) and LDL lipoprotein receptor related protein-1 (LRP1), major beta-amyloid transport proteins, at the blood-brain barrier and keeps the neural system safe from Alzheimers disease. More studies have to be made to have a clear multiple effects of oleocanthal. This mechanism has been clearly studied in the brains (invivo) and cultured brain cells (in vitro) of laboratory mice.
The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
