NTP Releases Handbook on Systematic Review

Author: Catherine Sprankle, ILS/Contractor supporting NICEATM

The NTP Office of Heath Assessment and Translation (OHAT) at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences has released a handbook describing standard operating procedures for implementing systematic review in OHAT evaluations. The handbook also includes OHAT’s tool for assessing study quality, or “risk of bias,” that applies a parallel approach to evaluation of risk of bias for human and non-human animal studies.

The handbook is available at http://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/go/38673. Additional information about OHAT and its activities is available at http://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/go/ohat.
