Diagnostic value of TWEAK for predicting active lupus nephritis in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Accumulative studies showed that tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-like weak inducer of apoptosis (TWEAK) was up-regulated in the blood and urine from patients diagnosed with lupus nephritis (LN) and that it might be used as a novel biomarker for active LN.
Intensity of physical exercise and its effect on functional capacity in COPD: systematic review and meta-analysis.
Objective: To evaluate the effects of high-intensity interval training (HIIT), in comparison with those of continuous exercise, on functional capacity and cardiovascular variables in patients with COPD, through a systematic review...
Elevated blood apelin levels in type 2 diabetes mellitus: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
Aims: Apelin is a circulatory blood peptide acting as a ligand for the orphan G protein-coupled receptor known as APJ. Whether apelin blood levels can affect the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes mellitus is an open question.
Adjuvant Chemotherapy for Muscle-invasive Bladder Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Individual Participant Data from Randomised Controlled Trials

Risk of fatigue with PARP inhibitors in cancer patients: a systematic review and meta-analysis of 29 phase II/III randomized controlled trials
Fatigue was a frequently reported adverse event associated with the use of PARP inhibitors. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to fully investigate the fatigue of PARP inhibitors in cancer patients.
Accelerated TMS for Depression: A systematic review and meta-analysis
