PURPOSE To explore whether reported methodologic quality affects estimated intervention effects in randomized trials and contributes to discrepancies between the results of large randomized trials and small randomized trials in meta-analyses. DATA SOURCES Meta-analyses of randomized trials that included at least one large trial (>/=1000 participants) were(More)
OBJECTIVE Tesofensine (TE) is a norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin reuptake inhibitor. We conducted a meta-analysis of TE's effect on body weight in trials investigating its potential for treatment of Parkinson's or Alzheimer's disease. METHODS AND PROCEDURES Four randomized, double-blind, multicenter trials compared TE (n = 740) and placebo (n =(More)
Nation-wide screening for microalbuminuria in Denmark was performed in 22 paediatric departments treating children with Type 1 diabetes. Over a period of 6 months 1020 children (less than or equal to 12 years) and adolescents (greater than 12 to 19 years) were screened (81% of total). Of these, 957 (94%) performed at least two timed overnight urine(More)
The aim of this Danish multicenter trial was to compare the proportion of women with lower urinary tract symptoms after total abdominal hysterectomy (TAH) and subtotal abdominal hysterectomy (SAH) for benign uterine disorders. A total of 319 women were randomized to TAH (n=158) or SAH (n=161). Women were followed up for 1 year by strict data collection(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The antipsoriatic effect of an innovative aerosol foam formulation of fixed combination calcipotriol 50 μg/g (as hydrate; Cal) and betamethasone 0.5 mg/g (as dipropionate; BD) was explored in order to compare the effect with that of the first-line treatment Cal/BD ointment. METHODS This was a Phase IIa, single-centre,(More)
The authors performed a pooled analysis of three randomized, 4-week, phase II/III studies in adult patients with mild to severe psoriasis and assessed the safety/tolerability of aerosol foam fixed-combination calcipotriene 0.005% (Cal) plus betamethasone dipropionate 0.064% (BD) versus different comparators. Overall, 1104 patients were randomized to Cal/BD(More)
PURPOSE Actinic keratoses (AKs) exist on a continuum with squamous cell carcinoma and can occur as sub-clinical and clinically visible lesions in cancerized fields on sun-damaged skin. Ingenol mebutate effectively treats AKs on areas up to 25 cm2, but actinic keratosis can affect larger areas of skin. This trial evaluated systemic exposure and safety of(More)
BACKGROUND An aerosol foam formulation of fixed combination calcipotriene 0.005% (as hydrate; Cal) plus betamethasone dipropionate 0.064% (BD) was developed to improve psoriasis treatment. OBJECTIVES To compare the efficacy and safety of Cal/BD aerosol foam with Cal/BD ointment after 4 weeks. METHODS In this Phase II, multicenter, investigator-blind,(More)
INTRODUCTION Good treatment adherence is important in the effective management of psoriasis and is related to both the frequency of applications and the amount of product used versus the recommended dose. The efficacy and safety of fixed combination calcipotriol 50 µg/g (Cal) and betamethasone 0.5 mg/g as dipropionate (BD) in the treatment of psoriasis is(More)
