Indirect Comparison: a fundamental breakthrough in evidence synthesis But how valid is it?

By Laure Ngouanfo To decide, on the benefits/harms of an intervention or the validity of a clinical hypothesis, based on a single study alone is unrealistic. Results often vary from one study to the next. A meta-analytic approach is used to synthesize the body of evidence gathered from a systematic […]
