CMAJ 2020 May 22. Epub 2020 May 22.

Indian Institute of Public Health-Delhi (Devasenapathy), Public Health Foundation of India, Gurgaon, Haryana, India; Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence and Impact (Ye, Loeb, Fang, Tadayon Najafabadi, Xiao, Couban, Guyatt), McMaster University, Hamilton, Ont.; Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine (Fang), Guangzhou, Guangdong, China; West China School of Nursing and West China Hospital (Xiao), Sichuan University, Chengdu, Sichuan, China; Department of Medicine (Bégin), Université de Montréal, Que.

Background: The safety and efficacy of convalescent plasma in severe coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) remain uncertain. To support a guideline on COVID-19 management, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of convalescent plasma in COVID-19 and other severe respiratory viral infections.

Methods: In March 2020, we searched international and Chinese biomedical literature databases, clinical trial registries and prepublication sources for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and nonrandomized studies comparing patients receiving and not receiving convalescent plasma. Read More

Background: Estimates of the casefatality rate (CFR) associated with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vary widely in different population settings. We sought to estimate and compare the COVID-19 CFR in Canada and the United States while adjusting for 2 potential biases in crude CFR.

Methods: We used the daily incidence of confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths in Canada and the US from Jan. Read More

Background: Very little direct evidence exists on use of corticosteroids in patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Indirect evidence from related conditions must therefore inform inferences regarding benefits and harms. To support a guideline for managing COVID-19, we conducted systematic reviews examining the impact of corticosteroids in COVID-19 and related severe acute respiratory illnesses. Read More

Background: Regulatory agencies warn about the risk of acute kidney injury (AKI) after the initiation of sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors. Our objective was to quantify the 90-day risk of AKI in older adults after initiation of SGLT2 inhibitors in routine clinical practice.

Methods: We conducted a population-based retrospective cohort study in Ontario, Canada, involving adults with diabetes who were aged 66 years or older and who were newly dispensed either an SGLT2 inhibitor or a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP4) inhibitor in an outpatient setting between 2015 and 2017.

Oral glucocorticoids and incidence of hypertension in people with chronic inflammatory diseases: a population-based cohort study.

Background: Only a few population-based studies have examined the association between glucocorticoids and hypertension, with inconsistent results. We aimed to investigate the effect of oral glucocorticoids on incidence of hypertension in adults with chronic inflammatory diseases.

Methods: We analyzed electronic health records from 389 practices in England during 1998-2017 of adults diagnosed with any of 6 chronic inflammatory diseases but with no previous diagnosis of hypertension. Read More
