Errata

This article corrects:

  1. An evaluation of bivariate random-effects meta-analysis for the joint synthesis of two correlated outcomes Volume 26, Issue 1, 78–97, Article first published online: 8 March 2006

In Table III on p. 88 of this article, the data presented for the 17 studies providing both outcomes was partly specified incorrectly.This has no bearing on any results presented in the paper, as all analyses used the correct data. The table should rather read as follows:

Table III. The 42 disease-free survival (DFS, j = 1) and 56 overall survival (OS, j = 2) estimates of the loge (hazard ratio) (Yij) and its standard error (sij) for marker MYCN from a systematic review in neuroblastoma [25].
