    Cancer Research UK Epidemiology Unit, University of Oxford, Gibson Building, Radcliffe Infirmary, Oxford, OX2 6HE, UK
    Biostatistics 6:1-9. 2005
    ..Because of the simple form of the test statistics, combination of evidence from different studies or strata is straightforward. Illustration of how the method could be extended to data from a 2xRxC table is also given...

    Cancer Research UK Epidemiology Unit, University of Oxford, Gibson Building, Radcliffe Infirmary, Oxford OX2 6HE, UK
    Br J Cancer 89:519-23. 2003
    ..These results provide evidence that the risk of pancreatic cancer may be weakly associated with obesity. However, the small magnitude of the summary risk means the possibility of confounding cannot be excluded...
