Hello Medlibbers, I really could use help with the following search request
so I'm reaching out for your collective wisdom.
I have a someone who needs all randomized clinical trials (RCT) that
have been performed with HRT where death and myocardial infarction or any
cardiac endpoint was used as an endpoint (such as HERS, Women's health
initiative trial). They have found only 4 RCT as well as 6 others that
used angiographic and carotid intima MLD as outcome. This person needs to know
if she has the complete list.
So, below is what I have found so
far. But I am not sure of an efficient way to pull out the concept
"endpoint". Any suggestions welcome.
