Subject   st: regression dilution bias: Stata instead of BUGS?

Dear List Members,
I'd like to perform regression analyses in the context of a meta-
analysis. The dependent variable is the relative risk (RR) and the 
independent variable the event rate in the placebo groups. Who could 
direct me to the correct commands in Stata (or do-files) to analyse 
such data while avoiding spurious associations due to regression 
dilution bias caused by regression of y-x on x?
