Traditional reviews, meta-analyses and pooled analyses in epidemiology. (1/844)

BACKGROUND: The use of review articles and meta-analysis has become an important part of epidemiological research, mainly for reconciling previously conducted studies that have inconsistent results. Numerous methodologic issues particularly with respect to biases and the use of meta-analysis are still controversial. METHODS: Four methods summarizing data from epidemiological studies are described. The rationale for meta-analysis and the statistical methods used are outlined. The strengths and limitations of these methods are compared particularly with respect to their ability to investigate heterogeneity between studies and to provide quantitative risk estimation. RESULTS: Meta-analyses from published data are in general insufficient to calculate a pooled estimate since published estimates are based on heterogeneous populations, different study designs and mainly different statistical models. More reliable results can be expected if individual data are available for a pooled analysis, although some heterogeneity still remains. Large prospective planned meta-analysis of multicentre studies would be preferable to investigate small risk factors, however this type of meta-analysis is expensive and time-consuming. CONCLUSION: For a full assessment of risk factors with a high prevalence in the general population, pooling of data will become increasingly important. Future research needs to focus on the deficiencies of review methods, in particular, the errors and biases that can be produced when studies are combined that have used different designs, methods and analytic models.  (+info)

Erythropoietin and platelet production. (2/844)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Erythropoietin (Epo) is the primary growth factor for the red cell lineage but treatment with recombinant human Epo (rHuEpo) has been shown to increase platelet counts. In several animal species treatment with rHuEpo stimulated platelet production, but platelet counts tended to normalize after 1-2 weeks and large, chronic doses even caused thrombocytopenia. This paper aims to review the evidence about the effects of Epo on megakaryopoiesis. INFORMATION SOURCES: I examined the literature published in journals covered by Medline(R)a concerning the effects of Epo, hypoxia and iron deficiency on megakaryopoiesis and platelets. The reference list of each article was reviewed to try to identify further contributions. STATE OF THE ART: In vivo data have shown that moderate Epo stimulation, i.e. that produced by standard doses of rHuEpo, short-term hypoxia or moderate iron deficiency, causes a moderate elevation of platelet counts, whereas intense Epo stimulation, as produced by high doses of rHuEpo, prolonged hypoxia or severe iron deficiency, causes some degree of thrombocytopenia. In the latter case, there appears to be a diphasic response to Epo, the initial positive response (a stimulation of platelet production) being followed by thrombocytopenia. Contrarily to the thrombocytopenia due to increased platelet destruction induced by other growth factors, Epo-induced thrombocytopenia is the result of an inhibition of platelet production. CONCLUSION AND PERSPECTIVE: Stem-cell competition between erythroid and platelet precursors appears to be the cause of these phenomena in situations of prolonged, intense stimulation by Epo. In vitro data support the existence of a common erythrocytic and megakaryocytic precursor. It remains to be determined whether these effects of rHuEpo are a result of the dose itself or of the magnitude of the erythropoietic effect of that dose. It is not known whether a lower dose given in a patient with decreased marrow function would bring about the same biological effects as those induced by high doses of rHuEpo in the presence of a normal marrow function. Caution should be exercised before using high doses of hematopoietic growth factors.  (+info)

Systematic reviews and meta-analyses on treatment of asthma: critical evaluation. (3/844)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical, methodological, and reporting aspects of systematic reviews and meta-analyses on the treatment of asthma and to compare those published by the Cochrane Collaboration with those published in paper based journals. DESIGN: Analysis of studies identified from Medline, CINAHL, HealthSTAR, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, personal collections, and reference lists. STUDIES: Articles describing a systematic review or a meta-analysis of the treatment of asthma that were published as a full report, in any language or format, in a peer reviewed journal or the Cochrane Library. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: General characteristics of studies reviewed and methodological characteristics (sources of articles; language restrictions; format, design, and publication status of studies included; type of data synthesis; and methodological quality). RESULTS: 50 systematic reviews and meta-analyses were included. More than half were published in the past two years. Twelve reviews were published in the Cochrane Library and 38 were published in 22 peer reviewed journals. Forced expiratory volume in one second was the most frequently used outcome, but few reviews evaluated the effect of treatment on costs or patient preferences. Forty reviews were judged to have serious or extensive flaws. All six reviews associated with industry were in this group. Seven of the 10 most rigorous reviews were published in the Cochrane Library. CONCLUSIONS: Most reviews published in peer reviewed journals or funded by industry have serious methodological flaws that limit their value to guide decisions. Cochrane reviews are more rigorous and better reported than those published in peer reviewed journals.  (+info)

The building blocks of evidence-based dentistry. (4/844)

The practice of dentistry is becoming more complex and challenging. Changing socio-demographic patterns, patients as knowledgeable health care consumers, rapid technical advances and the information "explosion" all place greater demands on clinical decision making. The need for reliable information and the electronic revolution have come together to allow the "paradigm shift" towards evidence-based health care to progress swiftly. Evidence-based dentistry closes the gap between clinical research and real world dental practice and provides dentists with powerful tools to interpret and apply research findings. Central to evidence-based practice is the systematic literature review, which synthesizes the best evidence and provides the basis for clinical practice guidelines.  (+info)

Evidence based medicine in practice: lessons from a Scottish clinical genetics project. (5/844)

OBJECTIVE: To establish national clinical guidelines and integrated care pathways for five conditions (tuberous sclerosis (TS), Huntington's disease (HD), myotonic dystrophy (MD), neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), and Marfan syndrome (MS)) and audit their use in Scotland. DESIGN: Systematic review of published reports followed by consensus conferences to prepare clinical guidelines and integrated care pathways. Structured review of medical records before and after introduction of integrated care pathways to document changes in practice. Survey of staff views on procedures adopted. SETTING: All four clinical genetics centres in Scotland. RESULTS: Project resulted in reduced variation in practice across centres, improved data recording in medical records, and improved communication with other professional groups. A very poor evidence base for management of patients with the conditions studied was found. CONCLUSIONS: A collaborative structure for undertaking clinical research would improve the evidence base for current practice. National discussion of the boundaries of responsibility of care for the long term management of patients with these disorders is required. The integrated care pathway approach shows promise as a means of facilitating the development of audit within clinical genetics services.  (+info)

Clarifying the abstracts of systematic literature reviews. (6/844)

BACKGROUND: There is a small body of research on improving the clarity of abstracts in general that is relevant to improving the clarity of abstracts of systematic reviews. OBJECTIVES: To summarize this earlier research and indicate its implications for writing the abstracts of systematic reviews. METHOD: Literature review with commentary on three main features affecting the clarity of abstracts: their language, structure, and typographical presentation. CONCLUSIONS: The abstracts of systematic reviews should be easier to read than the abstracts of medical research articles, as they are targeted at a wider audience. The aims, methods, results, and conclusions of systematic reviews need to be presented in a consistent way to help search and retrieval. The typographic detailing of the abstracts (type-sizes, spacing, and weights) should be planned to help, rather than confuse, the reader.  (+info)

Evidence-based medicine in nephrology: identifying and critically appraising the literature. (7/844)

BACKGROUND: Uncertainties about best management of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are reflected in wide variations in practice. Systematic reviews aim to reduce uncertainty by strengthening the evidence base for clinical practice, allowing estimation of the benefits and risks of particular interventions, whilst minimizing the potential for bias. This paper describes the methods and conduct of six systematic reviews of aspects of the management of ESRD, and the yield in terms of trials found. METHODS: Our methodology was based on that recommended by the Cochrane Collaboration (an international initiative set up to perform and disseminate systematic reviews of health care). It involved a systematic search of electronic databases and bibliographic reference lists, together with handsearching of Kidney International for studies relevant to the management of ESRD, followed by a systematic assessment of study quality. RESULTS: Around 12,000 abstracts were assessed which had been identified from electronic sources. Of these, 2085 (18%) were deemed to be reports of possible randomized or quasi-randomized controlled trials relevant to the management of ESRD. Three hundred and forty were relevant to the six specific reviews, and after assessment of the full manuscripts, 39 studies were finally included in our reviews. Reports of a further nine trials, which were identified from other sources, were also included. The broad search adopted allowed the parallel development of a register of trials of all aspects of the management of ESRD. CONCLUSIONS: This study has demonstrated that the methodology of systematic reviews, as promoted by the Cochrane Renal Group, is feasible but has significant resource implications. The development of a register of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) related to the management of ESRD will facilitate this form of research in the future.  (+info)

Comparison of information processing technologies. (8/844)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the type of information obtainable from scientific papers, using three different methods for the extraction, organization, and preparation of literature reviews. DESIGN: A set of three review papers was identified, and the ideas represented by the authors of those papers were extracted. The 161 articles referenced in those three reviews were then analyzed using 1) a formalized data extraction approach, which uses a protocol-driven manual process to extract the variables, values, and statistical significance of the stated relationships; and 2) a computerized approach known as "Idea Analysis," which uses the abstracts of the original articles and processes them through a computer software program that reads the abstracts and organizes the ideas presented by the authors. The results were then compared. The literature focused on the human papillomavirus and its relationship to cervical cancer. RESULTS: Idea Analysis was able to identify 68.9 percent of the ideas considered by the authors of the three review papers to be of importance in describing the association between human papillomavirus and cervical cancer. The formalized data extraction identified 27 percent of the authors' ideas. The combination of the two approaches identified 74.3 percent of the ideas considered important in the relationship between human papillomavirus and cervical cancer, as reported by the authors of the three review articles. CONCLUSION: This research demonstrated that both a technically derived and a computer derived collection, categorization, and summarization of original articles and abstracts could provide a reliable, valid, and reproducible source of ideas duplicating, to a major degree, the ideas presented by subject specialists in review articles. As such, these tools may be useful to experts preparing literature reviews by eliminating many of the clerical-mechanical features associated with present-day scientific text processing.  (+info)

The current study used a convenience sample of 95 SRs included across seven overview topics to provide empirical evidence on issues surrounding quality assessments of SRs in overviews. This study found that AMSTAR assessments and inter-rater reliability were higher for Cochrane compared to non-Cochrane SRs; these results were consistent within each overview topic and for many of the individual questions of the AMSTAR tool. Minor challenges were encountered when assessing quality of SRs in the context of overviews, but decision rules were developed and recommendations for overview authors were provided. Results also suggested that inter-rater reliability of Cochrane and non-Cochrane SRs may be lower for SRs with moderate AMSTAR assessments and higher for SRs that were assessed as strong; inter-rater reliability may also be higher for non-Cochrane SRs assessed as weak. Consistent with a previous study [33], we found that the conclusions, but not the results, of Cochrane and non-Cochrane SRs ...
Introduction Dementia is the fastest growing major cause of disability globally and may have a profound impact on the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) of both the patient with dementia and those who care for them.

Therapeutic exercises play a crucial role in the management of burn injuries. The broad objective of this review is to systematically evaluate the effectiveness, safety and applicability to low-income countries of therapeutic exercises utilised by physiotherapists to improve function in patients with burns. Population = adults and children/adolescents with burns of any aspect of their bodies. Interventions = any aerobic and/or strength exercises delivered as part of a rehabilitation programme by anyone (e.g. physiotherapists, occupational therapists, nurses, doctors, community workers and patients themselves). Comparators = any comparator. Outcomes = any measure of outcome (e.g. quality of life, pain, muscle strength, range of movement, fear or quality of movement). Settings = any setting in any country. A systematic review will be conducted by two blinded independent reviewers who will search articles on PubMed, CiNAHL, Cochrane library, Medline, Pedro, OTseeker, EMBASE, PsychINFO and EBSCOhost using
OBJECTIVE: We examined how assessments of risk of bias of primary studies are carried out and incorporated into the statistical analysis and overall findings of a systematic review. DESIGN: A cross-sectional review. SAMPLE: We assessed 200 systematic reviews of randomised trials published between January and March 2012; Cochrane (n=100), non-Cochrane (Database of Reviews of Effects) (n=100). MAIN OUTCOMES: Our primary outcome was a descriptive analysis of how assessments of risk of bias are carried out, the methods used, and the extent to which such assessments were incorporated into the statistical analysis and overall review findings. RESULTS: While Cochrane reviews routinely reported the method of risk of bias assessment and presented their results either in text or table format, 20% of non-Cochrane reviews failed to report the method used and 39% did not present the assessment results. Where it was possible to evaluate the individual results of the risk of bias assessment (n=154), 75% (n=116/154) of

Asthma is a highly prevalent condition that is the reason behind many morbidity and mortality cases in the world.1 2 Asthma management and control can be influenced, among other things, by the presence of other comorbid conditions.3-7 Our recently completed scoping review investigating the prevalence of comorbidities among patients with asthma identified a number of conditions including, but not limited to depression, anxiety, rhinitis, gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) and obesity, may occur more frequently in people with asthma than in those without, leading to potential additional difficulties in asthma management.8-10 It has been shown that health-related quality of life and daily-life functionality are diminished, and the use of healthcare services is increased with the presence of comorbid conditions.3 6 9-15 In addition, other studies showed that controlling these conditions at an early stage may improve asthma outcomes.6 12 14 15. These international studies focused on different ...
Review authors will work independently to assess risk of bias using criteria described in the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions (Higgins 2011) to assess trial quality. This set of criteria is based on evidence of associations between overestimate of effect and high risk of bias of the article such as sequence generation, allocation concealment, blinding, incomplete outcome data and selective reporting. If the raters disagreed, the final rating was made by consensus, with the involvement of another member of the review group. Where inadequate details of randomization and other characteristics of trials were provided, authors of the studies were contacted in order to obtain further information. Nonconcurrence in quality assessment was reported, but if disputes arose as to in which category a trial was to be allocated, again, resolution was made by discussion. The level of risk of bias was noted in both the text of the review and in the Summary of findings tables. ...

The number of women who have had breast cancer is higher than ever before. These women may face many challenges when trying to assimilate back into life following their cancer diagnosis and treatment, and it is imperative to understand the long-term psychological consequences. This systematic review aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the associations between breast cancer history and mental health conditions.. Most reviews on the topic have been restricted to studying the prevalence of depression among cancer patients [15, 20]. We opted for considering a much broader list of mental disorders that have their onset during adulthood as outcomes, to give a more comprehensive picture of the spectrum of mental disorders that may affect breast cancer survivors. We also chose to include only studies in which a comparison group was available, so that the relative frequency or severity of these conditions compared to the general population could be studied.. We will include studies in which women ...

This study supports the recommendations by Cochrane Collaboration to prioritize MEDLINE, EMBASE and CENTRAL as the basic databases for literature search to locate RCTs in the musculoskeletal area. Secondly, this study indicates that besides MEDLINE, EMBASE and CENTRAL a literature search to locate RCTs in the musculoskeletal area could also consider SCOPUS and CINAHL. Finally, this study indicates that even with the addition search of 10 other often used databases median recall is not improved noticeably.. Thirteen different databases were not enough to identify all relevant references. Searching MEDLINE, EMBASE and CENTRAL retrieved 88.9%, and searches in 10 additional databases increased the median recall by only 2 percentage point. Thus, results from this study could be interpreted, as an indication that searching databases is not sufficient to identify all relevant references and that other sources must be included in the literature search in order to achieve a larger recall. This study does ...

Accurate diagnosis, treatment and prevention of HIV and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) should be priorities for health systems around the world. Untreated or undertreated STIs can lead to infertility, cancer, chronic pelvic pain, and facilitate HIV transmission.1 New and existing treatments, tests and prevention strategies therefore need to be rigorously evaluated to assess their benefits and harms as this information is important for clinical decision-making and policy and guideline development. This editorial introduces the new Sexually Transmitted Infections Cochrane Review (STICR) group, which aims to support authors in summarising evidence about interventions and diagnostic tests used for genital tract infections.. The Cochrane Collaboration focuses on developing and maintaining systematic reviews of healthcare interventions to allow well-informed decisions about healthcare.2 A systematic review is an assessment and evaluation of all research studies that examine a particular ...
Systematic reviews can be used to inform decision making in many different disciplines, such as evidence-based healthcare and evidence-based policy and practice.[8] A systematic review can be designed to provide an exhaustive summary of current literature relevant to a research question. A systematic review uses a rigorous and transparent approach for research synthesis, with the aim of assessing and, where possible, minimizing bias in the findings. While many systematic reviews are based on an explicit quantitative meta-analysis of available data, there are also qualitative reviews and other types of mixed-methods reviews which adhere to standards for gathering, analyzing and reporting evidence.[9] Systematic reviews of quantitative data or mixed-method reviews sometimes use statistical techniques (meta-analysis) to combine results of eligible studies. Scoring levels are sometimes used to rate the quality of the evidence depending on the methodology used, although this is discouraged by the ...
Clinical practice guidelines support optimal decision making in medical care. Guidelines should use the best available evidence.1 Systematic reviews use transparent criteria (such as Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE)) to evaluate the quality of evidence2 and so systematic reviews (where available) should be the primary source of evidence in guidelines. The Cochrane Collaboration produces systematic reviews (Cochrane Reviews) using a rigorous methodology. These are peer reviewed at the protocol and review stage, and are updated regularly.3 Previous work indicates that guidelines do not make full use of Cochrane Reviews.4 ,5 This represents research wastage, and may lead to suboptimal medical care..

We identified 121 reports of network meta-analyses covering a wide range of medical areas. Key methodological components of the systematic review process were missing in most reports. The reporting did not differ by publication in a general or specialty journal or by public or private funding.. Several guidelines have been developed to assess the methodological quality and reporting of systematic reviews and meta-analyses,26 30 31 32 33 and according to all these guidelines, retrieving all relevant studies is crucial for the success of every systematic review. The literature search needs to be exhaustive and adequate to maximise the likelihood of capturing all relevant studies and minimise the effects of reporting biases that might influence the nature and direction of results.34 35 36 More than half of our network meta-analyses failed to report exhaustive searches; for those with adequate reporting, 11% searched only one electronic database (web table 6).. In addition, more than half of our ...

Many themes that Lorraine discussed were echoed in an excellent workshop in the Consumer Stream of the scientific program called, Stakeholder/consumer engagement in systematic reviews. Facilitators Dwayne Van Eerd and Emma Irvin of The Institute for Work and Health (IWH) presented a stakeholder engagement model and led a small but experienced group of consumers in an engaging discussion comparing the roles of Cochrane consumers and IWH stakeholders (a term preferred by IWH to consumer) in the systematic review process.. As many of us know, the main difference is that although some Cochrane Collaboration review groups use their consumers in a variety of roles including writing/editing plain language summaries and contributing to writing teams, the primary role of most of us is to provide comments for protocols and reviews in the draft stage. The IWH, on the other hand, utilizes its stakeholders throughout the entire review process including topic selection, research question refinement and ...
All countries face significant challenges from complex manifestations of malnutrition, which affects one in three people globally. Systematic reviews provide ready-to-use syntheses of quality-appraised evidence to inform decision-making for actions. To enhance the utility and quality of future Cochrane nutrition evidence, we described the scope and quality of all nutrition systematic reviews in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR). We screened all active CDSR records (31 July 2015) to identify reviews and protocols using pre-specified eligibility criteria and definitions. Duplicate, independent data extraction included criteria for inclusion of studies in completed reviews (PICOS). We assessed methodological quality (AMSTAR), use of GRADE, mapped reviews against 2013 Global Burden of Disease data, and categorised the paradigm (medical, lifestyle and socio-ecological) of the review question. We analysed our results using descriptive statistics. We screened 8484 records, and included 470 (8%
Systematic reviews (SRs) can help decision makers interpret the deluge of published biomedical literature. However, a SR may be of limited use if the methods used to conduct the SR are flawed, and reporting of the SR is incomplete. To our knowledge, since 2004 there has been no cross-sectional study of the prevalence, focus, and completeness of reporting of SRs across different specialties. Therefore, the aim of our study was to investigate the epidemiological and reporting characteristics of a more recent cross-section of SRs.We searched MEDLINE to identify potentially eligible SRs indexed during the month of February 2014. Citations were screened using prespecified eligibility criteria. Epidemiological and reporting characteristics of a random sample of 300 SRs were extracted by one reviewer, with a 10% sample extracted in duplicate. We compared characteristics of Cochrane versus non-Cochrane reviews, and the 2014 sample of SRs versus a 2004 sample of SRs. We identified 682 SRs, suggesting that more

Network meta-analyses are increasingly used to determine the best available healthcare interventions among all existing treatments for one specific disease. We showed that the conduct, reporting and interpretation of network meta-analyses was questionable. Particularly, the search strategy, assessment of risk of bias and publication bias were inappropriate in most publications. Furthermore, we showed that treatment rankings usually reported with no credibility interval have a substantial degree of imprecision, with a 50% or greater probability that the best-ranked treatment was actually not the best in 28% of networks. We also investigated whether conventional meta-analyses meet clinicians and patients needs. Our results revealed a substantial waste of research, with more than 40% of treatments, treatment comparisons, and trials not covered by existing systematic reviews. We developed a new paradigm, the live cumulative network meta-analysis, a single network meta-analysis covering all ...

Here we summarise our thinking behind the items in AMSTAR 2, which are numbered as in the instrument (see supplementary figure). Supplementary appendix 1 provides a more complete users guide.. 1. Did the research questions and inclusion criteria for the review include the components of PICO?. It is common practice to use the PICO description (population, intervention, control group, and outcome) as a convenient and easily memorised framework for a study question. Sometimes a timeframe should be added if this is critical in determining the likelihood of a study capturing relevant clinical outcomes (eg, an effect of the intervention is only expected after several years).. 2. Did the report of the review contain an explicit statement that the review methods were established prior to the conduct of the review and did the report justify any significantdeviations from the protocol?. Systematic reviews are a form of observational research, and the methods for the review should be agreed on before the ...
This webinar is the fifth in a series that Cochrane Learning Live is running in partnership with GESI: the Global Evidence Synthesis Initiative.. Rapid reviews are a type of knowledge synthesis for which the steps of a systematic review are streamlined or accelerated to produce evidence in a shortened timeframe. In this webinar, Dr Andrea C. Tricco and Dr Etienne V. Langlois will outline the usefulness of rapid reviews for providing actionable and relevant evidence to make informed decisions, describe how to engage knowledge users (e.g. patients, healthcare providers, policy-makers) in the conduct of rapid reviews, and discuss different rapid review methods that can be used in various contexts. Prof John Lavis will describe similarities and differences across a range of EVIPNet-affiliated rapid evidence services and provide examples of how theyve evolved over time in response to their experiences working with health-system policymakers and stakeholders.. This webinar is for anyone interested in ...

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine conducted a rapid turn-around comprehensive review of recent medical literature on The Health Effects of Cannabis and Cannabinoids. The 16-member committee adopted the key features of a systematic review process, conducting an extensive search of relevant databases and considered 10,000 recent abstracts to determine their relevance. Primacy was given to recently published systematic reviews and primary research that studied one of the committees 11 prioritized health endpoints- therapeutic effects; cancer incidence; cardiometabolic risk; respiratory disease; immune function; injury and death; prenatal, perinatal and postnatal outcomes; psychosocial outcomes; mental health; problem Cannabis use; and Cannabis use and abuse of other substances ...
This systematic review shows that despite several limitations, there is epidemiologic evidence to support an association between NAFLD or NASH and an increased risk of HCC; risk seems to be limited to individuals with cirrhosis.
Background: Frequently, interventions for a given health problem have never been compared in head-to-head randomized controlled trials. In this context, adjusted indirect comparisons based on network meta-analyses (NMAs) could answer the question posed by most healthcare professionals: what is the best intervention among the existing interventions for a specific condition? Objectives: To evaluate the trend in NMAs publication topic in medical electronic databases and in the top five impact factor journals in the Medicine, General and Internal category. Methods: A search strategy was performed in Medline (PubMed), EMBASE, and CENTRAL, since inception (Figure 1). We analysed the general yearly trend all together and separately by database and by journal. Results: During the analysed period, the reporting of studies mentioning NMA has increased since the beginning of the XXI century and markedly since 2009. EMBASE was the database with the highest cumulative number of references bout NMA and the ...

Aims To give an updated perspective of interventions from additional data collected since our first review, conducted in 2008. Background This updated Cochrane Review incorporates new information from recent randomized controlled trials on culturally appropriate diabetes health education interventions. Methods An electronic literature search of six databases was repeated, with databases of ongoing trials checked and three journals hand-searched. Meta-analysis was carried out for sufficiently homogeneous outcomes, and common themes among trials were highlighted. Results A total of 22 new trials were added to the original 11. Meta-analysis of 28 trials containing suitable data showed significant improvements in glycaemic control (HbA1c) and diabetes knowledge over a period of 24 months, after the delivery of culturally appropriate education to participants, compared with those receiving conventional care. There were no consistent benefits over the control group in other selected outcome ...
Medical day hospitals provide multidisciplinary health services to older people in one location. In this Cochrane review, the authors investigated their effectiveness in preventing death, disability, institutionalisation and improving subjective health status.. Sixteen randomised and quasi-randomised trials ... compared day hospitals with comprehensive care (five trials), domiciliary care (seven trials) or no comprehensive care (four trials). The authors conclude from their analysis that there is low quality evidence that medical day hospitals appear effective compared to no comprehensive care for the combined outcome of death or poor outcome, and for deterioration in [activities of daily living ]. There is no clear evidence for other outcomes, or an advantage over other medical care provision.. This article can be read in free full text at: http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/14651858.CD001730.pub3.

Antibiotic treatments are indispensable for human and animal health. However, the heavy usage of antibiotics has led to the emergence of resistance. Antibiotic residues, antibiotic-resistant bacteria and genes are introduced into the terrestrial and aquatic environments via application of human and animal wastes. The emergence and the spread of antibiotic resistance in environmental reservoirs (i.e., soil, water, wildlife) threatens the efficacy of all antibiotics. Therefore, there is an urgent need to determine what effective solutions exist to minimize the dissemination of antibiotic resistance in the environment. The aim of this article is to describe the protocol of a systematic review of the literature considering these solutions. The primary questions addressed by the systematic review protocol are: how antibiotic resistance in the environment is impacted by changes in practice concerning (i) the use of antibiotics, (ii) the management of wastes or (iii) the management of the natural compartment.
Strontium and magnesium doped lanthanum gallate La0.85Sr0.15Ga0.85Mg0.15O3-delta (LSGM) oxygen ionic conducting ceramics were prepared by a steric entrapment synthesis (SES) method, which is a polymeric precursor synthesis method by using polyvinyl alcohol in aqueous solution. The perovskite LSGM phase formed essentially at a calcination temperature of 900 degrees C. Pure and single perovskite LSGM phase with high relative density of 97.1% was obtained after sintering at 1450 degrees C, while the relative density of the LSGM sample sintered at the same temperature by solid state reaction (SSR) method was 80.6% in present experiment. Comparing with SSR synthesis method, the sintering temperature by SES can be reduced at least 100 degrees C. Impedance spectra revealed that the grain-boundary resistivity of LSGM synthesized by SES was smaller than that by SSR method. and the conductivities of the samples by SES were higher than those by SSR method at all measuring temperatures.. ...
BACKGROUND: Although many machine learning algorithms have been developed to detect anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the performance of different algorithms required further investigation. The objectives of this current systematic review are to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of machine-learning-assisted detection for ACL injury based on MRI and find the current best algorithm. METHOD: We will conduct a comprehensive database search for clinical diagnostic tests in PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, and Web of science without restrictions on publication status and language. The reference lists of the included articles will also be checked to identify additional studies for potential inclusion. Two reviewers will independently review all literature for inclusion and assess their methodological quality using Quality Assessment of Diagnostic Accuracy Studies version 2. Clinical diagnostic tests exploring the efficacy of machine-learning-assisted ...
Whether overweight or obese end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients are suitable for renal transplantation (RT) is often debated. The objective of this review and meta-analysis was to systematically investigate the outcome of low versus high BMI recipients after RT. Comprehensive searches were conducted in MEDLINE OvidSP, Web of Science, Google Scholar, Embase, and CENTRAL (the Cochrane Library 2014, issue 8). We reviewed four major guidelines that are available regarding (potential) RT recipients. The methodology was in accordance with the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions and written based on the PRISMA statement. The quality assessment of studies was performed by using the GRADE tool. A meta-analysis was performed using Review Manager 5.3. Random-effects models were used. After identifying 5,526 studies addressing this topic, 56 studies were included. We extracted data for 37 outcome measures (including data of more than 209,000 RT recipients), of which 26 could be meta

Since 1994, the CIDG has been preparing systematic reviews on the benefits and harms of healthcare interventions for infectious diseases, particularly malaria, tuberculosis, diarrhoea, and tropical diseases. As of 2015, we now also manage the HIV/AIDS portfolio of reviews.. Over the years the Groups name has changed to reflect the expansion of its scope: Parasitic Diseases Group (1994 to 1995); Tropical Diseases Group (1996 to 1997); and Infectious Diseases Group (1997 to present). The CIDG, which is supported by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) through the Research, Evidence and Development Initiative (READ-It) programme aims to ensure that healthcare diseases and healthcare delivery related to low- and middle-income countries are included in the brief of Cochrane, and that people from these countries are involved in preparing Cochrane Reviews.. The CIDGs main areas of work are on determination of the effects of interventions on the prevention or treatment infectious ...

How safe is it for anyone else? The second hit on Google scholar addresses that. Its a review paper which is good because systematic reviews are at the top of the hierarchy of evidence. I keep telling you that you shouldnt trust just one source of evidence, even a well-conducted scientific study. A systematic review gathers together all the scientific studies on a particular topic, weights them according to how well-conducted and therefore reliable they are, and weighs up the balance of evidence from all the available research. So a good, recent systematic review is about as dependable evidence as you can ask for.

The modern practice of medicine necessitates that where feasible our practice should be based on the best available information. We can search for this ourselves, but where a rigorously conducted systematic review has been undertaken by a group of people with a specific knowledge and interest in the question you seek to answer, it would seem foolhardy to ignore it or under estimate its significance. This Cochrane Database of systematic reviews is a rapidly expanding collection of regularly updated systematic reviews of research on the effectiveness of health care.. At the time, our work was undertaken there were 52 Collaborative Review groups.. Each group being made up of institutions and individuals who share an interest in generating reliable up to date evidence relevant to the prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of particular health problems. These groups had produced 1750 articles.. Each of these in turn is a complete review or protocol (that is, review in preparation) of studies that ...
