Yes, the *metan* command will perform meta-analysis using simply the four cells of the 2x2 table such as you describe. Type *help metan* to see the many many options available to you. If you want to perform meta-analysis of failure (instead of cure) simply subtract:
#treated - # cured = # failed

I am trying to do a meta-analysis for the first time with a series
Of older randomized trials. The only results that are provided in
#cured in treated/#treated vs #cured in controls/#controls and a
Ttest or chi squared.  Without having OR and 95% CI or even std errors,can I
do a
Meta-analysis in Stata ?

Can anybody with any experience help guide a poor Stata Virgin through this?
Or at least tell me if I'm barking up the wrong tree!

Thank in Advance, hope everyone had a great July 4th and didn't blow up
Their BBQ!
