Claudia Denking has had problems with the
user-written command -midas-.
-findit midas- brings up one written by
Ben Dwamena (firstname.lastname@example.org), Division of Nuclear Medicine,
Department of Radiology, University of Michigan Health System,
Ann Arbor; designed for meta-analysis of diagnostic tests;
integrating results for both sensitivity and specificity,
without reducing them to a single measure, such as an odds ratio.

When I updated my copy from version 1 to 2, it initially
failed to run properly, but had no problems after I closed
and re-opened Stata.
However, Setor Kunutsor <firstname.lastname@example.org>
seems to locate a quite different one , via

which is not designed for diagnostic tests, but for
treatment effects, measured as odds ratios, differences in the mean etc.
If so, there is a newer version :

Subject: st: Midas
I am trying to use MIDAS for a systematic review.
midas tp fp fn tn, bfor ford
midas tp fp fn tn, bfor
midas tp fp fn tn, ford
does not seem to be working. I am trying to get a similar output to Revman with the description of the studies on the left and then the forest plot for sensitivity and specificity on the right.
I am using STATA 12.
Does anyone have experience with this and can help?
