YHEC offers a range of services to inform the development and conduct of indirect and mixed treatment comparisons (ITC and MTC).

What are Indirect and Mixed Treatment Comparisons?

Indirect and mixed treatment comparisons (network meta-analyses) are new statistical tools for comparing research studies when there is no direct evidence, insufficient direct evidence or more than two interventions need to be compared.

ITC and MTC methods are developing fast. These methods are already widely used in health care to understand better the comparative effectiveness of different treatments, devices and diagnostic techniques.


Working in partnership

Undertaking ITC and MTC requires specialist knowledge. York Health Economics Consortium (leaders in the field of health economics, economic modelling and systematic reviews) and Quantics (leaders in the field of life science statistics) have successfully delivered many ITC and MTC analyses and can provide solutions to your ITC, systematic review, modelling and statistical needs.

To learn more about our services and experience please see the Indirect Treatment Comparisons website.
