Title

Osteoarthritis: Small studies overestimate the benefit of therapies for OA

Authors
Published in Nature Reviews Rheumatology. 2010, vol. 6, no. 11, p. 617-618
Abstract a meta-epidemiological study has revealed that the inclusion of small studies in meta-analyses of osteoarthritis interventions could lead to an overestimation of the benefit of these interventions. Does this mean meta-analyses should be restricted to trials with large sample sizes?
