Effect of first line endocrine therapy in patients with hormone sensitive advanced breast cancer: a network meta analysis

PMCID: 5951224
PMID: 29780257
DOI: 10.2147/OTT.S165681

[…] m the main publications of RCTs. If percentages of ORR were only reported, we needed to convert to decimals to round the numbers.The data were analyzed using the Markov Chains Monte Carlo method with WinBUGS, Version 1.4.3 (MRC Biostatistics Unit, Cambridge, UK). Three Markov chains were run simultaneously with randomly chosen different initial values. The WinBUGS model ran 150,000 iterations in t […]


Mapping the characteristics of network meta analyses on drug therapy: A systematic review

PLoS One
PMCID: 5927429
PMID: 29709028
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0196644

[…] atrix of results, tables of data). Moreover, 52.9% of studies reported results for direct comparison and 12.1% for indirect comparisons individually. The software used was stated in 345 studies, with WinBUGS (57.5%), Stata (27.9%), R (23.8%), and Addis (6.0%) the most frequent. Supplementary analyses such as subgroup, sensitivity, and meta-regression analyses between included primary studies were […]


Parallel evolution of vgsc mutations at domains IS6, IIS6 and IIIS6 in pyrethroid resistant Aedes aegypti from Mexico

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5928250
PMID: 29712956
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-25222-0

[…] V410L allele frequencies were calculated from genotypic frequencies following Garcia et al.. The 95% high density intervals (HDI 95%) around these frequencies were calculated in WINBugs2.0 following 1,000,000 iterations. Departure from Hardy-Weinberg expectations were expressed as Wright’s inbreeding coefficient (FIS) and a χ2 test was used to test the hypothesis FIS = 0 (d.f […]


Therapeutic Approaches to Atrophic Vaginitis in Postmenopausal Women: A Systematic Review with a Network Meta analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials

PMCID: 5949302
PMID: 29765921
DOI: 10.6118/jmm.2018.24.1.1

[…] is imaginary drug; thus, larger SUCRA values denote more effective interventions.All analyses were performed using R of version 3.1.3 (The R Foundation for Statistical Computing, Vienna, Austria) and WinBUGS version 1.4 (MRCBiostatistics Unit 2007, Cambridge, UK). If the difference between the variance of random-effects an inconsistency was large (P < 0.05), then significant heterogeneity was cons […]


Accuracy of High Throughput Nanofluidic PCR Based Pneumococcal Serotyping and Quantification Assays Using Sputum Samples for Diagnosing Vaccine Serotype Pneumococcal Pneumonia: Analyses by Composite Diagnostic Standards and Bayesian Latent Class Models

J Clin Microbiol
PMCID: 5925721
PMID: 29444834
DOI: 10.1128/JCM.01874-17

[…] res and both the qPCR assay for lytA and the nanofluidic Sp-qPCR assay. The mean values of disease prevalence, sensitivity, and specificity with 95% credible intervals (CrI) were determined using the WinBUGS (version 1.4) program (). In this analysis, we focused each test identification result on PCV13 serotypes and not on the concordance of the serotype identification result of each test. Differe […]

PMCID: 5916670
PMID: 29668603
DOI: 10.1097/MD.0000000000010423

[…] A Bayesian NMA will be performed by WinBUGS 1.4.3 software (MRC Biostatistics Unit, Cambridge, UK).We will use node splitting method to examine the inconsistency between direct and indirect comparisons if a loop connecting 3 or more arm […]
