The Best of the Rest: Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (May 2011)


Each month a wide range of systematic reviews and meta-analyses are examined in the process of compiling the “Dementia: the Latest Evidence” newsletter. It is impractical to include all of these in any given month’s newsletter. Here is a brief listing of the most worthy items which were considered briefly for, but not included in, Issue 10, May 2011 and Issue 11, June 2011. Full credit must go to PubMed as the source of these bibliographic citations and abstracts.
