Meta-analysis of 31 randomized controled trials (RCTs) of two treatment groups of heart disease patients, where the treatment group received bone marrow stem cells and the control group a placebo treatment.

A matrix with 31 rows and 5 columns. Each row represents study results, the columns are:

- trial
ID name of the trial.

- effect.size
treatment effect is measured as the difference of the ejection fraction between groups, which measures the improvement of left ventricular function in the heart.

- se.effect
Standard Error of the effect.size.

- sample.size
Total number of patients in the trial.

- n.discrep
Number of detected discrepancies in the published trial. Discrepancies are defined as two or more reported facts that cannot both be true because they are logically or mathematically incompatible.
