Reason for withdrawal from publication

This review is now out of date although it is correct as of the date of publication [Issue 2, 2008]. The authors are developing a new protocol which will replace this review. Publication of the protocol is expected in 2014, and serves to update the existing review and incorporate the latest evidence into a new Cochrane Review. The latest version of this review (available in 'Other versions' tab on The Cochrane Library) may still be useful to readers until the new review is published.
