J Clin Epidemiol 57:911-24. 2004..Dissemination bias, in how and what outcomes are reported or published, may be causing this incompleteness. This article illustrates these problems and presents possible sensitivity analyses to allow the most reliable conclusions...

Stat Med 24:2241-54. 2005..We show how either maximum likelihood or a Bayesian approach with vague prior distributions can be used to fit the alternative model...
- Primer: an evidence-based approach to prognostic markersDouglas G Altman
Cancer Research UK Medical Statistics Group, Centre for Statistics in Medicine, Wolfson College, Oxford, UK
Nat Clin Pract Oncol 2:466-72. 2005..Prospectively planned pooled analyses of high-quality studies, along with general availability of individual patient data and adherence to reporting guidelines, would help alleviate many of these problems...
- Evidence synthesis combining individual patient data and aggregate data: a systematic review identified current practice and possible methodsRichard D Riley
Centre for Medical Statistics and Health Evaluation, School of Health Sciences, University of Liverpool, UK
J Clin Epidemiol 60:431-9. 2007..In this situation researchers might need to combine IPD with AD to utilize all the evidence available. Here, we review applied IPD meta-analysis articles to assess if and how AD is combined with IPD in practice...

Department of Biostatistics, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, L69 3GS, United Kingdom
Stat Med 31:2179-95. 2012..We also examine the use of the Pearson correlation as a novel approach for dealing with missing within-study correlations, and provide an extension to bivariate random-effects models that reduce ORB in the presence of heterogeneity...

Stat Med 27:6111-36. 2008..The models reveal that between-study heterogeneity is partly explained by the use of different measurement devices, but there is no evidence that being an infant modifies diagnostic accuracy...
