For Update 2 discount 20mg lexapro amex, we searched Ovid MEDLINE (1996-November Week 3 purchase 5mg lexapro, 2009) buy lexapro 5 mg with mastercard, the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews th th (4 Quarter 2009), the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (4 Quarter 2009), and th Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects (4 Quarter 2009). We attempted to identify additional studies through hand searches of reference lists of included studies and reviews. The complete search strategy for electronic searches for Update 2 is in Appendix B. Finally, we requested dossiers of published and unpublished information from the relevant pharmaceutical companies for this review. All received dossiers were screened for studies or data not found through other searches. All citations were imported into an electronic database (Endnote XI, Thomson Reuters). Data Abstraction Two reviewers abstracted the following data from included trials: study design, setting, population characteristics (including sex, age, race/ethnicity, diagnosis); eligibility and exclusion criteria; interventions (dose and duration); comparison group treatment; numbers screened, Antihistamines Page 13 of 72 Final Report Update 2 Drug Effectiveness Review Project eligible, enrolled, and lost to follow-up; methods of outcome ascertainment; and results for each outcome. Any discrepancies in abstraction were resolved through discussion and consensus was achieved. We recorded intention-to-treat results if available and if the trial did not report high overall loss to follow-up. Study Selection Selection of included studies was based on the inclusion criteria created by the Drug Effectiveness Review Project participants, as described above. Two reviewers independently assessed titles and abstracts of citations identified through literature searches for inclusion using the criteria below. Full-text articles of potentially relevant citations were retrieved and again were assessed for inclusion by both reviewers. Results published only in abstract form were not included because inadequate details were available for quality assessment. Validity Assessment We assessed the internal validity (quality) of trials based on the predefined criteria listed in Appendix C. These criteria are based on the US Preventive Services Task Force and the National 24, 25 Health Service Centre for Reviews and Dissemination (United Kingdom) criteria. We rated the internal validity of each trial based on the methods used for randomization, allocation concealment, and blinding; the similarity of compared groups at baseline; maintenance of comparable groups; adequate reporting of dropouts, attrition, crossover, adherence, and contamination; loss to follow-up; and the use of intention-to-treat analysis. Trials that had a fatal flaw were rated poor quality; trials that met all criteria were rated good quality; the remainder were rated fair quality. As the fair-quality category is broad, studies with this rating vary in their strengths and weaknesses: The results of some fair-quality studies are likely to be valid, while others are only possibly valid. A poor-quality trial is not valid; the results are at least as likely to reflect flaws in the study design as a true difference between the compared drugs. A fatal flaw is reflected by failure to meet combinations of items of the quality assessment checklist. A particular randomized trial might receive 2 different ratings, one for effectiveness and another for adverse events. Appendix C also shows the criteria we used to rate observational studies of adverse events. These criteria reflect aspects of the study design that are particularly important for assessing adverse event rates. We rated observational studies as good quality for adverse event assessment if they adequately met 6 or more of the 7 predefined criteria, fair quality if they met 3 to 5 criteria, and poor quality if they met 2 or fewer criteria. Included systematic reviews were also rated for quality (see Appendix C). We rated the internal validity based a clear statement of the questions(s); reporting of inclusion criteria; methods used for identifying literature (the search strategy), validity assessment, and synthesis of evidence; and details provided about included studies.

In contrast to many inherited anemias, in SCD, iron overload does not occur without blood transfusion. The rate of iron loading in SCD depends on the blood transfusion regime: with simple hypertransfusion regimes, rates approximate to thalassemia major, but iron loading can be minimal with automated erythrocyte apheresis. The consequences of transfusional iron overload largely reflect the distribution of storage iron. In SCD, a lower proportion of transfused iron distributes extrahepatically and occurs later than in thalassemia major, so complications of iron overload to the heart and endocrine system are less common. We discuss the mechanisms by which these differences may be mediated. Treatment with iron chelation and monitoring of transfusional iron overload in SCD aim principally at controlling liver iron, thereby reducing the risk of cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Monitoring of liver iron concentration pretreatment and in response to chelation can be estimated using serum ferritin, but noninvasive measurement of liver iron concentration using validated and widely available MRI techniques reduces the risk of under- or overtreatment. The optimal use of chelation regimes to achieve these goals is described. Iron metabolism in sickle cell disease SCD might have a beneficial effect on disease severity by diminish- In the absence of repeated blood transfusions, as in the healthy ing hemoglobin S (HbS) synthesis in favor of fetal hemoglobin (HbF).

A SCD recent study in 8000 individuals in India found that iron The age of commencing blood transfusion, the rate of blood deficiency was more common in women with SCD (67%) than in transfusion, and the nature of the transfusion regime itself all affect 1 the rate and extent of iron overload in SCD. Therefore, only when repeated blood transfusions are given does iron overload transfusions in SCD were sporadic, given by top-up transfusion or by some form of exchange procedure in response to acute episodes.
