Indirect Comparisons and Meta-Analyses
In order to provide proof of evidence-based findings, indirect comparisons and meta-analyses are very important in early benefit assessments, and thus to demonstrate the additional benefit of a new pharmaceutical over the relevant comparative therapy.
The following services are provided by Ecker + Ecker:
- Analysis planning and performance
- Systematic literature search
- Data extraction and validation
- Raw data analysis for calculation with SAS and R (e.g. adaptation of population, subgroups, operationalisation of endpoints)
