Scholars are continually conducting studies on education topics ranging from kindergarten readiness and teacher pay to public university funding and Ivy League admissions. One of the best ways for a reporter to get up to date quickly, though, is to read a study of studies, which come in two forms: a literature review and a meta-analysis. A literature review is what it sounds like — a review of all the academic literature that exists on a specific issue or research question. Your news coverage also benefits from literature reviews: Rather than hunting down studies on your own and then worrying whether you found the right ones, you can, instead, share the results of a literature review that already has done that legwork for you.
Cross Validated is a question and answer site for people interested in statistics, machine learning, data analysis, data mining, and data visualization. It only takes a minute to sign up. Connect and share knowledge within a single location that is structured and easy to search. The review should not necessarily include mathematical details of the models. It should focus instead on a classification of the models, in terms of their assumptions, estimation algorithms, robustness, and other relevant characteristics.
Background: Lung cancer is one of the most common co-morbid conditions in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis IPF and negatively affects the prognosis of IPF; Current guidelines for the management of IPF do not give a clear statement on how to manage these patients, and traditional chemotherapy for lung cancer had a limited efficiency rate. Here, we present a rare case of primary lung squamous carcinoma in a patient with IPF whose tumor completely regressed following gemcitabine plus cisplatin therapy; the cancer was no longer detectable after 2 years upon follow-up. Case presentation: Sixty-seven year-old male patient with IPF was admitted to hospital due to acute onset hemoptysis.
