    Stat Methods Med Res 21:223-42. 2012
    ..Under the correct conditions, multiple instrument analyses are a promising approach for Mendelian randomisation studies. Further research is required into multiple imputation methods to address missing data issues in IV estimation...

    Am J Epidemiol 173:1392-403. 2011
    ..Based on the theoretical properties of the estimators, structural mean models make weaker assumptions than other IV estimators and can therefore be expected to be consistent in a wider range of situations...
