    Stat Med 27:954-70. 2008
    ..The method allows the use of a more consistent comparison when summarizing published evidence, thus potentially improving the reliability of a meta-analysis...

    Rolf Weitkunat
    PMI Research and Development, Philip Morris Products S, A, Neuchatel, Switzerland
    BMC Public Health 7:334. 2007
    ..We report a detailed quantitative review of the evidence in American and European smokeless tobacco users, and compare our findings with previous reviews and meta-analyses...

    J Environ Sci Health C Environ Carcinog Ecotoxicol Rev 24:257-84. 2006
    ..Therefore, a 25% increase in lung cancer risk attributable to occupational acrylonitrile exposure is suggested. Possible contribution of smoking confounding the increased risk cannot be fully excluded...

    Zheng Sponsiello-Wang
    Philip Morris Products S A, PMI Research and Development, Neuchatel, Switzerland
    BMC Cancer 8:356. 2008
    ..We present a systematic review of studies from North America and Europe, since data are lacking from other continents. Risk is also difficult to quantify elsewhere due to the various products, compositions and usage practices involved...
