Leahy, Joy; Walsh, Cathal – Research Synthesis Methods, 2019
If IPD is available for some or all trials in a network meta-analysis (NMA), then incorporating this IPD into an NMA is routinely considered to be preferable. However, the situation often arises where a researcher has IPD for trials concerning a particular treatment (eg, from a sponsor) but none for other trials. Therefore, one can reweight the…

Freeman, Suzanne C.; Carpenter, James R. – Research Synthesis Methods, 2017
Network meta-analysis (NMA) combines direct and indirect evidence from trials to calculate and rank treatment estimates. While modelling approaches for continuous and binary outcomes are relatively well developed, less work has been done with time-to-event outcomes. Such outcomes are usually analysed using Cox proportional hazard (PH) models.…

Saluja, Ronak; Cheng, Sierra; delos Santos, Keemo Althea; Chan, Kelvin K. W. – Research Synthesis Methods, 2019
Objective: Various statistical methods have been developed to estimate hazard ratios (HRs) from published Kaplan-Meier (KM) curves for the purpose of performing meta-analyses. The objective of this study was to determine the reliability, accuracy, and precision of four commonly used methods by Guyot, Williamson, Parmar, and Hoyle and Henley.…

Kim, Mi-Ok; Wang, Xia; Liu, Chunyan; Dorris, Kathleen; Fouladi, Maryam; Song, Seongho – Research Synthesis Methods, 2017
Phase I trials aim to establish appropriate clinical and statistical parameters to guide future clinical trials. With individual trials typically underpowered, systematic reviews and meta-analysis are desired to assess the totality of evidence. A high percentage of zero or missing outcomes often complicate such efforts. We use a systematic review…
