Keywords: Alzheimer’s disease, bibliometric analysis, biomarker.
Objectives: The aim of this study was to examine trends in biomarker studies in Alzheimer's disease (AD)using bibliometric analysis.
Materials and methods: A bibliometric analysis was performed on research articles published about biomarkers in AD in the Scopus database. The data was retrieved from January 1, 1970 to October 27, 2021, using the keywords “biomarker” or “biomarkers” and “Alzheimer” or “Alzheimer’s disease” in the search bar.
Results: A total of 1,385 articles were included in the study. The first article was published in 1995. Most of the articles were written in English [n=1,346 (97.18%)] and were from the United States of America (USA) [n=535 (38.62%)]. The most productive researchers and institutions were from Sweden.
Conclusion: Since AD is a global health problem, developing countries, as well as developed countries, should be encouraged to participate in biomarker studies on AD.
