On April 20, 2007, the number of citations in PubMed surpassed 17 million (see NLM technical bulletin.)

Interestingly, the TRIP paper “Using the Turning Research Into Practice (TRIP) database: how do clinicians really search?” was added on the 20th April. So there is a chance (albeit remote) that the TRIP paper was the 17 millionth!
