ppvcap: Efficacy of Pneumococcal Polysaccharide Vaccine in Preventing...

Description Format Source References

Description

PPV23 (23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine) with 16 Randomized Clinical Trials (RCTs); outcome variable CAP (community-acquired pneumonia).

This data frame corresponds to 16 randomized control trials (RCTs) reporting efficacy of the PPV (Pneumococcal Polysaccharide) vaccine in preventing CAP (community acquired pneumonia). The data frame contains the evaluation of Risk of Bias (RoB) of the trials and some study population characteristics.
