Objectives: To investigate the effect of the explicit use of PRISMA, a statement designed to help authors to report meta-analyses (MAs), on the reporting quality of MAs in behavioral and social sciences. Methods: We evaluated a random sample of 207 MAs indexed in PsycINFO in 2016; 100 explicitly used PRISMA and 107 did not. Two authors independently checked the 27 PRISMA items and extracted factors that could potentially be associated with reporting quality. Results: From our 207 MAs, perfect adherence to PRISMA was found in less than 4%, of which 87% explicitly used PRISMA. The following items were significantly more frequently encountered in MAs that explicitly used PRISMA: structured summary, protocol and registration, information sources, search strategy, study characteristics, results of individual studies, funding, study selection, risk of bias in individual study and bias across studies. The journals’ impact factors, the endorsement of PRISMA by the journal, the number of authors, the country of the first author, the open access of the article and the design of the studies were significantly and positively associated with the explicit PRISMA use. Conclusions: Even if far from optimal, the explicit use of PRISMA has a positive influence on the reporting completeness of MAs. [less ▲]

Objectives: To investigate the methodological quality in meta-analyses (MAs) published in behavioral and social sciences. Methods: We evaluated a random sample of 207 MAs indexed in PsycINFO database in 2016. Two authors independently extracted methodologic characteristics of all MAs with the 16 items of AMSTAR2 (A MeaSurement Tool to Assess systematic Reviews 2). AMSTAR2 allows to assess the methodological quality of MAs that classifies them in 4 categories: critically low, low, moderate and high. Results: From the 207 MAs, according to AMSTAR2 criteria, 95% of MAs were rated as critically low. Statistical methods were appropriate and publication bias well evaluated in respectively 87% and 70% of the MAs. However, much improvement is needed in data collection and analysis: Publication of the research protocol (in 11% of MAs), comprehensive literature search strategy (44%), assessment (37%) and interpretation (29%) of risk of bias in individual included studies and presentation of excluded studies (11%). Conclusions: The methodological quality of MAs of our sample was critically low, according to AMSTAR2 criteria. Some efforts could improve tremendously the methodological quality of behavioral and social sciences MAs and thus gain in robustness and reliability. [less ▲]

Objective: We aimed to assess the safety of topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in the management of osteoarthritis (OA) in a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized, placebo-controlled trials. Methods: A comprehensive literature search was undertaken in the MEDLINE, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), and Scopus electronic databases. Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group trials that assessed adverse events (AEs) with topical NSAIDs in patients with OA were eligible for inclusion. Authors and/or study sponsors were contacted to obtain the full report of AEs. The primary outcomes were overall severe and serious AEs, as well as the following MedDRA System Organ Class (SOC)-related AEs: gastrointestinal, vascular, cardiac, nervous system, skin and subcutaneous tissue, musculoskeletal and connective tissue. Results The search strategy identified 1209 records, from which 25 papers were included in the qualitative synthesis and 19 were included in the meta-analysis, after exclusions. Overall, more total AEs (odds ratio [OR] 1.16, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.04–1.29; I2 = 0.0%) and more withdrawals due to AEs (OR 1.49, 95% CI 1.15–1.92; I2 = 0.0%) were observed with topical NSAIDs compared with placebo. The same results were achieved with topical diclofenac, largely driven by an increase in skin and subcutaneous tissue disorders (OR 1.73, 95% CI 0.96–3.10), although the difference was not statistically significant compared with placebo. No significant difference in the odds for gastrointestinal disorders was observed between topical NSAIDs and placebo (OR 0.96, 95% CI 0.73–1.27). Conclusions Topical NSAIDs may be considered safe in the management of OA, especially with regard to low gastrointestinal toxicity. The use of topical NSAIDs in OA should be considered, taking into account their risk: benefit profile in comparison with other anti-OA treatments. [less ▲]

INTRODUCTION: Self-administration of medicines or dietary supplements without any physician's advice is a widespread behavior and appears to be more frequently practiced by women. Moreover, reasons to self-administer products are often pains and injuries especially among athletes who might also use remedies to improve physical performance. The objective of this study was thus to assess the prevalence of self-administration of medicines and dietary supplements as well as its determinants among female amateur runners. METHODS: Our sample was comprised of women who took part in amateur running events. Data regarding self-administration of substances, exclusively aiming at being physically prepared for the running event (i.e., intake the week before), were collected through an anonymous self-administered questionnaire including four specific themes (i.e., general information, self-administered medicines and dietary supplements, context of self-administration of substances and knowledge of the anti-doping regulations). RESULTS: A total of 136 women, with a median age of 39 years (interquartile range: 27-47), volunteered. Among them, 34.6% reported self-administration of medicines during the period immediately preceding the running event, with the aim to be physically prepared. More than one third (33.8%) also declared self-administration of dietary supplements. Furthermore, we observed that about 8.1% of the sample had consumed a potentially doping substance. After adjustments for confounding variables, the probability of self-administration of products (medicines or supplements) increased significantly with the intensity of the activity and the membership in a sports club. CONCLUSIONS: Our study showed that self-administration of products among female runners seems to be a widespread behavior, where the intensity of the sports practice and the network of runners seem to influence the decision to resort to this behavior.
