Quality assessment

The authors undertake an extensive search for papers and reduce bias in selection of studies through independent double screening. The characteristics and results of the included studies appear to be reported reliably with data extraction being carried out by two reviewers, with a summary of participants, interventions, outcomes and quality of included studies provided. The authors present the PRISMA reporting checklist for systematic reviews which makes it easy to track the methods. Limitations include not having the full risk of bias assessment presented and a lack of clarity around the publication cut off dates for the searches.
