Systematic reviews and meta-analysis

Lead Research Organisation: MRC Clinical Trials Unit

Abstract

A number of clinical trials comparing the same treatments might not show which treatment is best. In this situation, the CTU Meta-analysis Group searches for all the trials and describes them - a systematic review. Then, we put the results of these trials together in a meta-analysis. This gives a better picture of how good or bad a treatment is, than any single trial.|Most researchers use information written about trials for systematic reviews and meta-analyses. If trials are not written about or not written about in much detail, this method is not so reliable. Instead, we ask all the doctors who did the trials, for all the relevant information on each patient. This so called individual patient data method is much more reliable, but can take much longer. We are one of only a few groups worldwide that do systematic reviews and meta-analyses in this way.|In the past we have looked at treatments in ovarian, lung, oesophageal, bladder, brain, cervical and endometrial cancer, and sarcoma, as well as in pregnancy, human prion disease and venous leg ulcers. Now we have projects in lung and colorectal cancer, and in stroke.|We also research different ways of doing systematic reviews and meta-analyses, to try to improve how they are done.

Technical Summary

The Meta-analysis Group of the MRC Clinical Trials Unit (CTU) aims to rigorously evaluate the effectiveness of interventions for cancer and other diseases/conditions using systematic reviews and meta-analysis, to inform both clinical practice and research. We also aim to improve the quality and reliability of systematic reviews and meta-analyses through associated methodological research.|Moderate improvements in outcome are often the best that can be expected of new interventions, but these can be clinically worthwhile and important in terms of public health. Where randomised trials recruit too few patients to detect such modest differences reliably, they may have inconclusive results, or by chance, have results in favour of a particular intervention. Collating and appraising such trials in a systematic review, provides an objective summary of all the available evidence. Combining the results of these trials in a meta-analysis, can give sufficient statistical power to obtain a reliable and precise estimate of effect.|The Group predominantly conducts systematic reviews and meta-analyses based on individual patient data (IPD MA). These involve the collection, checking and re-analysis of the original IPD from all the relevant trials worldwide, necessitating extensive collaboration. Compared to standard systematic reviews based on trial-level data extracted from publications or obtained from trial investigators, the collection of IPD can improve the quality of data and breadth of analysis, and so it is considered the gold standard approach. As IPD MAs are resource-intensive and take time to complete, we also use standard systematic reviews to identify questions that require the IPD approach, when a more timely answer is needed, or when resource is limited. We are one of few groups worldwide with expertise in IPD MAs and have an international reputation in their conduct.|The Group has completed IPD MAs and other systematic reviews of therapies for ovarian, lung, oesophageal, bladder, brain and cervical cancer, and soft tissue sarcoma, as well as human prion disease, pre-eclampsia and venous leg ulcers. We have ongoing projects in lung and colorectal cancer, and in stroke. We are piloting consumer involvement in our IPD projects. Methodological projects have included investigations of publication and patient exclusion bias, and the development of methods for analysing published time-to-event data. Ongoing projects include comparing meta-analyses based on summary data with those based on IPD, evaluating the methods for assessing treatment by patient covariate interactions and methods for analysing IPD.|We act as the main CTU link to the Cochrane Collaboration, with members of the Group active in a number of Cochrane Review Groups and Methods Groups. We also co-convene the IPD Meta-analysis Methods Group.

Impact "Si suggerisce di non eseguire la chemioterapia adiuvante" "Nel 2005 il gruppo ABC ha condotto una metanalisi dei dati individuali di 491 pazienti dai sei studi clinici randomizzati condotti fino ad allora (di cui uno non pubblicato). Nonostante la limitazione della metanalisi dovuta al numero ridotto dei pazienti, al fatto che quattro dei 6 studi inclusi erano stati interrotti al momento della analisi ad interim, non permettendo così di trarre conclusioni definitive, è stata evidenziata una riduzione del rischio di morte del 25% (hazard ratio: 0.75; p=0.019) a favore del gruppo trattato con chemioterapia ma il dato è ancora controverso." Translation: "Use of adjuvant chemotherapy is not advised" "In 2005, the ABC group conducted an analysis of 491 patients from 6 RCTs, 5 published and 1 unpublished.

Impact "Si suggerisce di considerare la chemioterapia neoadiuvante dopo discussione con il paziente a riguardo del rapporto costo/ beneficio" "Nel 2005 l'Advanced Bladder Cancer (ABC) Meta-analysis Collaboration ha condotto una metanalisi dei dati individuali di 3005 pazienti di 11 studi randomizzati (alcuni dei quali già considerati nella metanalisi di Winquist) di chemioterapia neoadiuvante + trattamento locale (radioterapia o cistectomia) versus trattamento locale [10] (H). Questa metanalisi, eccetto l'undicesimo studio successivamente inserito, era la rivalutazione di quella precedente pubblicata su Lancet nel 2003 [11] (H) relativa ai dati di 2688 pazienti di 10 studi clinici randomizzati che aveva evidenziato una riduzione del 13% del rischio di morte a favore della chemioterapia neoadiuvante (HR: 0.87; p=0.016). E' stato evidenziato un beneficio clinico associato alla chemioterapia neoadiuvante di combinazione "platinum-based" (HR= 0.86; p=0.003) con riduzione del 14% del rischio di morte, il che equivale ad un vantaggio assoluto di sopravvivenza del 5% e ad un vantaggio assoluto del 9% in termini di "disease-free survival" a 5 anni (HR: 0.78; p<0.0001), indipendentemente dal tipo di trattamento locale eseguito e dai sottogruppi di pazienti considerati." Translation: "Use of noeadjuvant chemotherapy should be considered after discussions with the patient with respect to the cost/benefit of treatment" "In 2005 the ABC Meta-analysis Collaboration conducted an IPD meta-analysis based on 3005 patients from 11 RCTs, looking at neoadjuvant chemotherapy + local treatment (radiotherapy or cystectomy) versus local treatment. This meta-analysis was an update of the one published in the Lancet in 2003, including an additional study. The Lancet 2003 study was based on 2688 patients from 10 RCTs and showed a 13% reduction in the risk of death with neoadjuvant chemotherapy (HR=0.87; p=0.016). There was a clinical benefit associated with platinum-based combination chemotherapy with a 14% reduction in the risk of death (HR=0.86; p=0.003) which is equivalent to a 5% absolute survival benefit and a 9% disease-free survival benefit at 5 years (HR=0.78; p<0.0001), independent of the type of local treatment received and across all patient subgroups.", based on our systematic review and meta-analysis of IPD (PMID: 12801735; PMID: 15939524)

Impact "Stages IIB, III and IVA: This category has traditionally included patients with stage IIB-IVA disease. However, currently patients with IB2 and IIA2 disease are also included in this category. Concomitant chemoradiation represents the standard treatment. This modality is superior to RT alone for local control, metastasis rate, disease-free and overall survival. A meta-analysis based on 18 trials with individual patient data was recently performed. Cisplatin-based chemotherapy was used in 85% of the patients. The most common regimen was cisplatin monotherapy 40 mg/m2 on a weekly schedule.The results demonstrated a 6% and 8% improvement in absolute 5-year survival and disease-free survival with chemoradiotherapy respectively. In addition a decreasing relative effect of chemoradiotherapy on survival with increasing tumour stage was observed, with estimated absolute survival benefits of 10% (stage Ia to IIA), 7% (stage IIB) and 3% (stage III to IVA) at 5 years", based on our systematic review and meta-analysis of IPD (PMID: 19001332)

When data from a European intergroup trial was added to this meta-analysis, the statistical significance was no longer present (HR, 0.88; 95% CI, 0.76-1.01; P=.07). When this meta-analysis was restricted to only patients with stage III disease, an HR of 0.73 (95% CI, 0.51-1.07; P 5 .1) was found.

Recurrence-free survival was also adversely affected by postoperative radiotherapy but that effect was not statistically significant (HR 1.09; 95%CI 0.95-1.25). Subgroup analyses for predefined factors shows no evidence that the effect of postoperative radiotherapy is different for any group of patients defined by age, sex or histology. Results for stage III disease (for the meta-analysis defined as any T-stage with N2,3 disease) show no clear evidence for neither a detrimental nor a beneficial effect of postoperative radiotherapy.

Impact There are multiple randomized trials of PORT, all of which were collectively analyzed in a landmark study by the PORT Meta-analysis Trialists Group published almost 15 years ago. Because of confounders, it is impractical to use each individual randomized trial for guideline development, but rather, the aggregate data presented in the meta-analysis provide a more comprehensive view. For patients with completely resected pathologic stage I NSCLC, it is recommended that postoperative radiation therapy should not be used (Grade 1A)", based on our systematic review and meta-analysis of IPD (PMID: 9690404; PMID: 15603857)

Impact The use of chemotherapy in patients with stage IV NSCLC with WHO/ECOG/Zubrod performance status (PS) of 0 or 1 and (based on clinical judgement) in some cases PS 2 is recommended. This is based on a recent metaanalysis that compared the efficacy of chemotherapy with BSC and showed a benefit to chemotherapy in reduction of risk of death and an increase in 1-year survival. The meta-analysis included 16 trials with a total of 2,714 patients; 12 trials used platinum-based regimens, and 13 reported the PS. The meta-analysis found that patients with a PS of 2 also received a benefit, although it was less than the benefit seen in patients with a PS of 0 to 1. Dutch guideline7 recommends to start chemotherapy as soon as possible based on a individual based meta-analysis of 2008 on 2714 patients showing a significant benefit of chemotherapy (HR, 0.77; 95% CI, 0.71 to 0.83; P =< 0.0001), equivalent to a relative increase in survival of 23% or an absolute improvement in survival of 9% at 12 months, increasing survival from 20% to 29%.", based on our systematic review and meta-analysis of IPD (PMID: 18678835)

Title Practical methods for estimation of HRs from publications 
Description The hazard ratio is the best statistic to use in meta-analyses of time to event outcomes. However, when hazard ratios are not reported in trial publications the methods for estimating and including tem in meta-analylses can be difficult for non-statisticians to use. We have presented a simplified guide to these methods in workshops and in an an open-access paper that includes a downloadable spreadsheet to facilitate doing the calculations (PMID: 17555582). 
Type Of Material Improvements to research infrastructure 
Year Produced 2006 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact Made it easier for systematic reviewers to do meta-analyses of time-to-event outcomes (such as time to death in cancer), which will ulitmately improve their quality and reliability.

Title SCHARP software for the plotting and analysis of IPD 
Description The major statistical packages have been geared to the meta-analysis of aggregate data.

We re-developed our in-house software (SCHARP) to analyse and plot the results of IPD meta-analysis of all outcome types, and provided it to other research groups.
