Re: Reporting of results from network meta-analyses: methodological systematic review

The authors and other readers may be interested in my recently published review of mixed treatment comparisons, which did consider the presentation of results. This review found a marked increase in the number published and variability in reporting, which the review by Bafeta et al also found. I concluded, as they have, that development of a consensus on reporting would be timely.
