      Limitations of the MEDLINE Database in Constructing Meta-analyses

      Background:

      .

      Meta-analyses are important for aggregating trial results to identify
      conclusions that cannot be made through separate examination. A thorough
      literature search is of utmost importance in constructing a meta-analysis.
      The PubMed interface from the National Library of Medicine is a
      cornerstone of many meta-analysis searches, and the largest component of
      PubMed is the MEDLINE database. Each article in this database has a unique
      entry with information about the study's participants and design. However,
      database entries are available for public search before the entry is
      finished, leaving a lag time during which data about the study design and
      participants may not yet be recorded in the database.
