by

Joseph C. Cappelleri
Pfizer Inc.

Comparative effectiveness research (CER) is a rigorous evaluation of the impact of different treatment options, even those not directly compared. As a key part of CER, network meta-analysis - the topic of this presentation - enables us to combine into one analysis the direct and indirect evidence of trials involving different sets of treatments.
