Use "findit metareg" and install the ado below:

SJ-8-4  sbe23_1 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Meta-regression in Stata
        (help metareg if installed) . . . . R. M. Harbord and J. P. T. Higgins
        Q4/08   SJ 8(4):493--519
        presents a revised version of the metareg command, which
        performs meta-analysis regression on study-level summary
        data
Then type "help metareg" to see examples of how to use the command.

Subject: st: Metareg challenges with meta-analysis for diagnostic accuracy studies

Hi all
I'm working on a meta-analysis of diagnostic accuracy studies and am having a challenging time getting metareg to work with my data.
I've tried to run this syntax:

metareg TP FP TN FN

and the error message comes:
wsse() option required


This must seem very stupid and basic, but how do I get and enter the wise for my data? What is the syntax string I should be using. I have the raw data if that helps.

Thank you very much for your assistance, it is truly appreciated.
