A Study Designs Defined
Meta-analysis: A combination of all of the results in a systematic review using accepted statistical
methodology.
Systematic review: On the basis of a specific clinical question, an extensive literature search is
conducted identifying studies of sound methodology. These studies are then reviewed, assessed, and
summarized according to the predetermined criteria related to the question at hand.
Randomized (clinical) control trial: A prospective, analytic, experimental study that uses data
generated typically in the clinical environment. A group of similar individuals are divided into 2 or
more groups (1 acting as a control and the other[s] receiving the treatment[s]) and the outcomes are
compared at follow-up.
Prospective, blind comparison to a gold standard: To show the efficacy of
a test, patients with varying degrees of an illness undergo both the test being investigated and the
“gold standard” test.
Cohort study: A large population with a specific exposure or treatment is followed over time.
The outcomes of this group are compared with a similar but unaffected group. These studies are
observational, and they are not as reliable because the 2 groups may differ for reasons aside from
the exposure.
Case-control study: Patients who have a specific outcome or condition are compared with those
who do not. This is a retrospective approach used to identify possible exposures. These are often
less reliable than RCTs and cohort studies because their findings are often correlational rather than
causative.
Case series/report: Reports on the treatment of an individual patient are reviewed. These have no
statistical validity because they use no control group for comparison. Case reports do, however,

have a role for novel and rare presentations, because no large populations exist in these cases.
B Study Level of Evidence Defined
Level I
Therapeutic studies
• RCTs with (a) significant difference or (b) no significant difference but narrow confidence
intervals • Systematic reviews of Level I RCTs (studies were homogeneous) Prognostic studies
1. Prospective studies
2. Systematic review of Level I studies
Diagnostic studies
1. Testing of previously developed diagnostic criteria in series of consecutive patients (with
universally applied reference “gold” standard)
2. Systematic review of Level I studies
Economic and decision analyses studies
1. Clinically sensible costs and alternatives; values obtained from many studies; multiway sensitivity analyses
2. Systematic review of Level I studies
Level II
Therapeutic studies
• Prospective cohort study • Lesser-quality RCT (e.g., �80% follow-up, no blinding, or improper randomization) • Systematic review of Level II studies or Level I studies with inconsistent results Prognostic studies
1. Retrospective study
2. Untreated controls from an RCT
3. Systematic review of Level II studies
Diagnostic studies
1. Development of diagnostic criteria on basis of consecutive patients (with universally applied
reference “gold” standard)
2. Systematic review of Level I and II studies
Economic and decision analyses studies
1. Clinically sensible costs and alternatives; values obtained from limited studies; multiway
sensitivity analyses
2. Systematic review of Level II studies

2. Retrospective cohort study
3. Systematic review of Level III studies
Diagnostic studies
