What is META-ANALYSIS? What does META-ANALYSIS mean? META-ANALYSIS meaning - META-ANALYSIS definition - META-ANALYSIS explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. The basic tenet of a meta-analysis is that there is a common truth behind all conceptually similar scientific studies, but which has been measured with a certain error within individual studies. The aim in meta-analysis then is to use approaches from statistics to derive a pooled estimate closest to the unknown common truth based on how this error is perceived. In essence, all existing methods yield a weighted average from the results of the individual studies and what differs is the manner in which these weights are allocated and also the manner in which the uncertainty is computed around the point estimate thus generated. In addition to providing an estimate of the unknown common truth, meta-analysis has the capacity to contrast results from different studies and identify patterns among study results, sources of disagreement among those results, or other interesting relationships that may come to light in the context of multiple studies. Meta-analysis can be thought of as "conducting research about previous research." Meta-analysis can only proceed if we are able to identify a common statistical measure that is shared among studies, called the effect size, which has a standard error so that we can proceed with computing a weighted average of that common measure. Such weighting usually takes into consideration the sample sizes of the individual studies, although it can also include other factors, such as study quality. A key benefit of this approach is the aggregation of information leading to a higher statistical power and more robust point estimate than is possible from the measure derived from any individual study. However, in performing a meta-analysis, an investigator must make choices many of which can affect its results, including deciding how to search for studies, selecting studies based on a set of objective criteria, dealing with incomplete data, analyzing the data, and accounting for or choosing not to account for publication bias. Meta-analyses are often, but not always, important components of a systematic review procedure. For instance, a meta-analysis may be conducted on several clinical trials of a medical treatment, in an effort to obtain a better understanding of how well the treatment works. Here it is convenient to follow the terminology used by the Cochrane Collaboration, and use "meta-analysis" to refer to statistical methods of combining evidence, leaving other aspects of 'research synthesis' or 'evidence synthesis', such as combining information from qualitative studies, for the more general context of systematic reviews.

Systematic Review and Meta analysis - All you ever need to know
Meta analysis is a very common way of bringing together data to help us decide which treatments might be best. BUT, you have to take care when interpreting them - there's a lot more to it than just looking which side of the line the little black diamond is on! How do you construct a search for a systematic review?Can you trust the result of a meta analysis? How do you know if it has been done well? How to recognise different kinds of bias, how to interpret a forest plot, and funnel plot and a bubble plot. What is the I squared statistic and what does it tell you about the data and how much to trust the result? These and many more things to do with these common but complex analyses is explained by Brett Doleman, statistical guru!

Cohort, Case-Control, Meta-Analysis, Cross-sectional Study Designs & Definition
http://www.stomponstep1.com/cohort-case-control-meta-analysis-cross-sectional-study-designs/ Based on the types of bias that are inherent in some study designs we can rank different study designs based on their validity. The types of research studies at the top of the list have the highest validity while those at the bottom have lower validity. In most cases if 2 studies on the same topic come to different conclusions, you assume the trial of the more valid type is correct. However, this is not always the case. Any study design can have bias. A very well designed and executed cohort study can yield more valid results than a clinical trial with clear deficiencies. • Meta-analysis of multiple Randomized Trials (Highest Validity) • Randomized Trial • Prospective Cohort Studies • Case Control Studies or Retrospective Cohort • Case Series (Lowest Validity) Meta-analysis is the process of taking results from multiple different studies and combining them to reach a single conclusion. Doing this is sort of like having one huge study with a very large sample size and therefore meta-analysis has higher power than individual studies. Clinical trials are the gold standard of research for therapeutic and preventative interventions. The researchers have a high level of control over most factors. This allows for randomization and blinding which aren't possible in many other study types. Participant's groups are assigned by the researcher in clinical trials while in observational studies "natural conditions" (personal preference, genetics, social determinants, environment, lifestyle ...) assign the group. As we will see later, the incidence in different groups is compared using Relative Risk (RR). Cohort Studies are studies where you first determine whether or not a person has had an exposure and then you monitor the occurrence of health outcomes overtime. It is the observational study design with the highest validity. Cohort is just a fancy name for a group, and this should help you remember this study design. You start with a group of people (some of whom happen to have an exposure and some who don't). Then you follow this group for a certain amount of time and monitor how often certain diseases or health outcomes arise. It is easier to conceptually understand cohort studies that are prospective. However, there are retrospective cohort studies also. In this scenario you identify a group of people in the past. You then first identify whether or not these people had the particular exposure at that point in time and determine whether or not they ended up getting the health outcomes later on. As we will see later, the incidence in different groups in a cohort study is compared using Relative Risk (RR). Case-Control Studies are retrospective and observational. You first identify people who have the health outcome of interest. Then you carefully select a group of controls that are very similar to your diseased population except they don't have that particular disease. Then you try to determine whether or not the participants from each group had a particular exposure in the past. I remember this by thinking that in a case control study you start off knowing whether a person is diseased (a case) or not diseased (a control). There isn't a huge difference between retrospective cohort and case-control. You are basically doing the same steps but in a slightly different order. However, the two study designs are used in different settings. As we will see later, the incidence in different groups in a case-control study is compared using Odds Ratio (OR). A Case-Series is a small collection of individual cases. It is an observational study with a very small sample size and no control group. Basically you are just reviewing the medical records for a few people with a particular exposure or disease. A study like this is good for very rare exposures or diseases. Obviously the small sample size and lack of a control group limits the validity of any conclusions that are made, but in certain situations this is the best evidence that is available. Cross Sectional Studies are different from the others we have discussed. While the other studies measure the incidence of a particular health outcome over time, a cross-sectional study measures Prevalence. In this observational study the prevalence of the exposure and the health outcome are measured at the same time. You are basically trying to figure out how many people in the population have the disease and how many people have the exposure at one point in time. It is hard to determine an association between the exposure and disease just from this information, but you can still learn things from these studies. If the exposure and disease are both common in a particular population it may be worth investing more resources to do a different type of study to determine whether or not there is a causal relationship.

Using the WWC to Support Data Collection for Meta-Analyses
Meta-analysis can be a powerful technique to examine the effects of an intervention, and how the effects vary depending on programmatic, setting, or research-specific conditions. However, collecting data for meta-analyses can be labor intensive. This webinar demonstrated how the What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) makes it easy to access the data from nearly 10,000 studies of educational interventions. The webinar explained how to use information from the WWC website to obtain study-specific information that can be incorporated into a meta-analysis. Dr. Josh Polanin, of Development Services Group, and Dr. Lauren Scher, of Concentric Research and Evaluation, provided an overview of the key steps in conducting a meta-analysis and described how researchers can use WWC resources during nearly every step of the process. In particular, the webinar discussed how to export study-specific details from the WWC's individual studies database, including data on effect sizes that may not be available in published study reports. The presentation also demonstrated how to extract information from the database files and conduct a meta-analysis using R, a free statistical software package. This presentation is intended for researchers who have a general understanding of meta-analytic techniques and familiarity with the WWC website and its offerings.

NCCMT - URE - Forest Plots - Understanding a Meta-Analysis in 5 Minutes or Less
Knowing how to interpret an odds ratio (OR) allows you to quickly understand whether a public health intervention works and how big an effect it has. For example, how effective is the flu vaccine in preventing people from getting the flu? Using hypothetical data, How to Calculate an Odds Ratio shows how an OR helps determine, on average, how many people who got the flu shot came down with the flu, versus the number of people who did not get the flu shot. The video explains how to calculate and interpret an OR, and decide whether it indicates a positive or negative outcome. An OR of “1” would mean that the flu shot made no difference. So, if the outcome is something we were trying to increase, such as getting the flu shot in the first place, a positive outcome would be indicated by an OR of greater than 1. But, if the intervention is intended to decrease something, such as getting sick with the flu, an OR of less than 1 would show a positive outcome.

In statistics, meta-analysis refers to statistical methods for contrasting and combining results from different studies, in the hope of identifying patterns among study results, sources of disagreement among those results, or other interesting relationships that may come to light in the context of multiple studies. Meta analysis can be thought of as "conducting research about previous research." In its simplest form, meta-analysis is done by identifying a common statistical measure that is shared between studies, such as effect size or p-value, and calculating a weighted average of that common measure. This weighting is usually related to the sample sizes of the individual studies, although it can also include other factors, such as study quality. The motivation of a meta-analysis is to aggregate information in order to achieve a higher statistical power for your measure of interest, as opposed to a less precise measure derived from a single study. In performing a meta analysis, an investigator must make choices many that can affect its output, including deciding how to search for studies, selecting studies based on a set of objective criteria, dealing with incomplete data, analyzing the data, and accounting for or choosing not to account for publication bias.

MAAMD workflow for meta-analyses of microarray data in Kepler
Genomic technologies are leading to increasing amounts and varieties of biological data, which require synthesis and analysis. New bioinformatics analysis tools are being developed but integrating them can be time-consuming and error-prone. Kepler provides an open source environment to integrate these disparate packages. Using Kepler, we integrated several external tools including Bioconductor packages, AltAnalyze, a python-based open source tool, and R-based comparison tool to build an automated workflow MAAMD to meta-analyze both online and local microarray data. The automated workflow connects the integrated tools seamlessly, delivers data flow between the tools smoothly, and hence improves efficiency and accuracy of complex data analyses. This vedio introduces the operation of MAAMD and Kepler briefly.
