OBJECTIVE: To explore patient characteristics associated with treatment response in patients receiving salvianolate injection for stable angina. METHODS: An analysis was conducted of data from a multicenter, phase IV clinical trial undertaken in China that enrolled 2150 patients hospitalized for stable angina from 50 hospitals. The treatment outcomes were changes of angina severity and nitroglycerin use between baseline and the last day of treatment. We used logistic regression models to explore patient characteristics associated with the treatment response...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is one of the most common causes of chronic liver disease. Several epidemiologic studies have suggested that patients with HCV infection might have a higher risk of osteoporotic fracture. However, the data are inconclusive. This systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted with the aims to summarize all available evidence. METHODS: A literature search was performed using MEDLINE and EMBASE database from inception to June 2016...

AIMS: Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is a major concern for public health worldwide. Interestingly, the risk of poor clinical outcomes of CDI in patients with nasogastric tube (NGT) insertion is still controversial. The aim of this study was to assess the outcomes of CDI in patients with NGT insertion. METHODS: A literature search was performed using MEDLINE, EMBASE, and The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews from inception through November 2017. Studies that reported relative risks, odds ratios, or hazard ratios comparing the clinical outcome of CDI in patients with NGT versus those who did not were included...

Systematic reviews aid the analysis and dissemination of evidence, using rigorous and transparent methods to generate empirically attained answers to focused research questions. Identifying all evidence relevant to the research questions is an essential component, and challenge, of systematic reviews. Grey literature, or evidence not published in commercial publications, can make important contributions to a systematic review. Grey literature can include academic papers, including theses and dissertations, research and committee reports, government reports, conference papers, and ongoing research, among others...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Gallstones and its complications are one of the most common hepatobiliary tract diseases. Several epidemiologic studies have suggested that patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection might be at an increased risk of gallstones. However, the data on this relationship remain inconclusive. This meta-analysis was conducted with the aims to summarize all available evidence. METHODS: A literature search was performed using MEDLINE and EMBASE databases from inception to May 2016...

AIM: To assess the use of Cochrane Reviews to inform the medical policy documents of major US private payers. METHODS: The publically available drug policy documents of the five major US private payers (covering about 50% market) namely: Anthem, Aetna, Cigna, Humana and United Healthcare (UHC) were assessed in February 2017 and reviewed to find whether they had used Cochrane Reviews. We extracted information such as use of Cochrane Reviews, number of Cochrane Reviews used, context of use and impact of Cochrane Reviews on policy, and Cochrane Review Group (CRG) and Cochrane Center linked to the Cochrane Review...

OBJECTIVE: Evidence-based medicine (EBM) was designed to foster student critical thinking (CT) while conveying knowledge to them. Chinese medical schools have adopted EBM to a varying degree but studies to examine its intended effect are few. This study evaluates the effect of an EBM course on Chinese medical student CT. METHODS: A total of 158 medical students at a Chinese medical school took a seven-category Chinese version of the critical thinking disposition inventory (CTDI-CV) before and after taking an EBM course...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the sixth most common cancer worldwide and its incidence has increased during the past decade. While hepatitis B and C virus infections and alcohol were established risk factors, the impact of smoking on the incidence and mortality of HCC was needed to be confirmed. METHODS: We reviewed cohort and case-control studies evaluating the association between cigarette smoking and incidence and mortality of HCC from MEDLINE and Google Scholar...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to identify risk factors for postoperative infection in Chinese lung cancer patients. METHODS: A comprehensive search was performed in PubMed, EMbase, CNKI, and WanFang Data databases to identify studies investigating risk factors for postoperative infection in Chinese lung cancer patients. Meta-analysis was performed by using Revman 5.2 software. RESULTS: A total of 12 studies were included. The results of meta-analysis showed that old age, male gender, diabetes, cigarette smoking, squamous cell carcinoma, pulmonary diseases, longer of mechanical ventilation, and longer time of surgery procedure were associated with increased risk of postoperative infection...

BACKGROUND: Conventional three-incision laparoscopic appendectomy (CTLA) is considered the new golden standard for the treatment of acute appendicitis. However, single-incision laparoscopic appendectomy (SILA) can further reduce the number of abdominal incisions and visible scars. METHODS: Major databases were researched for randomized clinical trials (RCTs) comparing SILA and CTLA for acute appendicitis from January 1983 and to March 2015. The technical feasibility, effectiveness, and safety between SILA and CTLA were compared...
