We are happy to announce the release of ADDIS (Aggregate Data Drug Information System) version 1.4. New features include:

  • Lynd & O'Brien benefit-risk analysis (see doi:10.1016/j.jclinepi.2003.12.012).
  • Network meta-analysis: assessment of convergence (see jstor:1390675).
  • Network meta-analysis: variance parameters.
  • Network meta-analysis: node-splitting models (see doi:10.1002/sim.3767).
  • Corrected meta-analysis: for datasets with zeroes.
  • User interface: tabs for large panels.

The enhancements to network meta-analysis mean that in most cases, ADDIS will allow you to do everything that is needed to perform a full analysis.
