Summarising the Evidence for Drug Safety: A Methodological Discussion of Different Meta-Analysis Approaches

The different data sources for summarising drug safety outcomes, according to study design, publication of data, and origin of the information are reviewed, focusing on meta-analyses of aggregate data and meta-Analyses of individual patient data.

Get real in individual participant data (IPD) meta‐analysis: a review of the methodology

A literature review is conducted to provide an overview of methods for performing an IPD‐MA using evidence from clinical trials or non‐randomized studies when investigating treatment efficacy.

Meta‐Analysis in Nonclinical Risk Assessment

Systematic review and meta-analysis methods should be adopted both for assessing evidence from human epidemiological studies alone or from animal studies alone and in combining animal and human data in risk assessment processes.

Recent developments in meta‐analysis

Highlights of recent developments in meta‐analysis in medical research are reviewed, outlining in particular how emphasis has been placed on heterogeneity and random‐effects analyses and extension of ideas to complex evidence synthesis.



The potential and limitations of meta-analysis.

The differing applications and limitations of meta analysis are discussed, with a review of the analytic methods used and the problems and biases encountered.

Asymptotically Unbiased Estimation in Generalized Linear Models with Random Effects

SUMMARY Obtaining estimates that are nearly unbiased has proven to be difficult when random effects are incorporated into a generalized linear model. In this paper, we propose a general method of

Bias correction in generalised linear mixed models with a single component of dispersion

SUMMARY General expressions are derived for the asymptotic biases in three approximate estimators of regression coefficients and variance component, for small values of the variance component, in

A general discussion is given of the statistical issues involved in merging information from different sets of data, a common parameter of interest being involved. In the simplest situation, a

Traditional reviews, meta-analyses and pooled analyses in epidemiology.

For a full assessment of risk factors with a high prevalence in the general population, pooling of data will become increasingly important and future research needs to focus on the deficiencies of review methods.
