Carlo,

You can find a very nice powerpoint summary of both diagnostic test
meta-analysis concepts and their implementation using Stata, downloadable at
http://ideas.repec.org/p/boc/asug07/4.html. The Stata program that does this
is called -midas- but I could not find it with -findit-, instead try
http://econpapers.repec.org/paper/bocasug07/4.htm, though I've not yet used
it myself.

Cheers

Steve Pitts

Dear Statalisters,

I would like to run a metatanlysis comparino different clinical trials which
report different resulta in terms of specificitÓ and sensibiity for two
different diagnostic procedure.

I have just downloaded the package of meta commands for Stata 9/SE and the
related .pdf chapters from www.systematicreviews.com, as suggested by Svend
Juul in its (really helpful) textbook An Introduction to Stata for Health
Researchers.

However, I was not able to find any suggestions about my research goal.

Any hints would be, as ever, highly welcomed.

Thanks a lot for your kindness and for your time.

Kind Regards,

Carlo
