Cochrane Airways Specialised Register of Trials: database search strategies
The Cochrane Airways Specialised Register of Trials is a unique database containing references to reports of definite, probable and possible randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and quasi-randomised trials (CCTs) relevant to the Group's scope and topics. The Register includes references to reports on asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), sleep apnoea, bronchiectasis, interstitial lung diseases, and pulmonary hypertension.
The Register was developed, maintained and administered by the Information Specialist at the Cochrane Airways editorial base. References to trial reports were identified through systematic searches of bibliographic databases, and handsearching of respiratory conference abstracts.
The Register was used for the following purposes:
- To support the production of Cochrane Airways reviews.
- To inform prioritisation of Cochrane Airways Reviews.
