Tuberculosis in Liver Transplant Recipients: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Individual Patient Data

Jon-Erik Holty, Gould MK, Meinke L, Keefe E, Ruoss S
Liver Transplantation , 2009

Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) causes substantial morbidity and mortality in liver transplant recipients. We examined the efficacy of isoniazid latent Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection (LTBI) treatment in liver transplant recipients and reviewed systematically all cases of active MTB infection in this population. We found 7 studies that evaluated LTBI treatment and 139 cases of active MTB infection in liver transplant recipients.

Recommendations for Modeling Disaster Responses in Public Health and Medicine: A Position Paper of the Society for Medical Decision Making

Margaret L. Brandeau, McCoy JH, Hupert H, Jon-Erik Holty, Dena Bravata
Medical Decision Making , 2009

Purpose. Mathematical and simulation models are increasingly used to plan for and evaluate health sector responses to disasters, yet no clear consensus exists regarding best practices for the design, conduct, and reporting of such models. The authors examined a large selection of published health sector disaster response models to generate a set of best practice guidelines for such models.

Modeling the Logistics of Response to Anthrax Bioterrorism

GS Zaric, Dena M. Bravata, Jon-Erik Holty, Kathryn M. McDonald, Douglas K. Owens, Margaret L. Brandeau
Medical Decision Making , 2008

Background: A bioterrorism attack with an agent such as anthrax will require rapid deployment of medical and pharmaceutical supplies to exposed individuals. How should such a logistical system be organized? How much capacity should be built into each element of the bioterrorism response supply chain?

Inhalational, Gastrointestinal, and Cutaneous Anthrax in Children: A Systematic Review of Cases: 1900 to 2005

Dena M. Bravata, Jon-Erik Holty, E Wang, Robyn Lewis, Paul H. Wise, Kathryn M. McDonald, Douglas K. Owens
Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine , 2007

Objective: To systematically review all published case reports of children with anthrax to evaluate the predictors of disease progression and mortality.

Data Sources: Fourteen selected journal indexes (1900-1966), MEDLINE (1966-2005), and the bibliographies of all retrieved articles.

Closing the Quality Gap: A Critical Analysis of Quality Improvement Strategies, Vol. 5: Asthma

Dena M. Bravata, Vandana Sundaram, Robyn Lewis, Allison Gienger, Michael K. Gould, Kathryn M. McDonald, Paul H. Wise, Jon-Erik Holty, Katherine E. Herz, H Paguntalan, C Sharp, J Kim, E Wang, L Chamberlain, L Shieh, Douglas K. Owens
Stanford-UCSF Evidence-based Practice Center, for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality , 2007

Objectives:

Despite the availability of evidence-based guidelines for the management of pediatric and adult asthma, there remains a significant gap between accepted best practices for asthma care and actual care delivered to asthma patients. The purpose of this systematic review was to evaluate the evidence that quality improvement (QI) strategies can improve the processes and outcomes of outpatient care for children and adults with asthma.

Reducing Mortality from Anthrax Bioterrorism: Strategies for Stockpiling and Dispensing Medical and Pharmaceutical Supplies

Dena M. Bravata, GS Zaric, Jon-Erik Holty, Margaret L. Brandeau, Emilee Wilhelm-Leen, Kathryn M. McDonald, Douglas Owens
Biosecurity and Bioterrorism , 2006

A critical question in planning a response to bioterrorism is how antibiotics and medical supplies should be stockpiled and dispensed. The objective of this work was to evaluate the costs and benefits of alternative strategies for maintaining and dispensing local and regional inventories of antibiotics and medical supplies for responses to anthrax bioterrorism. We modeled the regional and local supply chain for antibiotics and medical supplies as well as local dispensing capacity.

Pediatric Anthrax: Implications for Bioterrorism Preparedness

Dena M. Bravata, E Wang, Jon-Erik Holty, Robyn Lewis, Paul H. Wise, Smita Nayak, Hau Liu, Kathryn McDonald, Douglas Owens
Prepared for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality by the Stanford-UCSF Evidence-based Practice Center, under contract #290-02-0017 , 2006

Objectives:

To systematically review the literature about children with anthrax to describe their clinical course, treatment responses, and the predictors of disease progression and mortality.

Data Sources:

MEDLINE® (1966-2005), 14 selected journal indexes (1900-1966) and bibliographies of all retrieved articles.

Review Methods:

We sought case reports of pediatric anthrax published between 1900 and 2005 meeting predefined criteria. We abstracted three types of data from the English-language reports:

Anthrax: A Systematic Review of Atypical Presentations

Jon-Erik Holty, RY Kim, Dena Bravata
Annals of Emergency Medicine , 2006

During the 2001 US anthrax attacks, mortality from inhalational anthrax was significantly lower than had been reported historically, which was attributed in part to early identification and timely treatment. During future attacks, clinicians will rely on published descriptions of the clinical features of inhalational anthrax to rapidly diagnose patients and institute appropriate treatment.

Accuracy of Transbronchial Needle Aspiration for Mediastinal Staging of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer: A Meta-Analysis

Michael K. Gould, Jon-Erik Holty, Kuschner WG
Thorax , 2005

Background: The reported accuracy of transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) for mediastinal staging in non- small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) varies widely. We performed a meta-analysis to estimate the accuracy of TBNA for mediastinal staging in NSCLC.

Methods: We searched Medline, Embase and the bibliographies of retrieved articles, with no language restriction, for studies evaluating TBNA accuracy. We used meta-analytic methods to construct summary receiver- operating characteristic curves and to pool sensitivity and specificity.

Regionalization of bioterrorism preparedness and response

Dena M. Bravata, Kathryn M. McDonald, Douglas K. Owens, Emilee Wilhelm-Leen, ML Brandeau, GS Zaric, Jon-Erik Holty, H Liu, Vandana Sundaram
Stanford-UCSF Evidence-based Practice Center, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality , 2004

The anthrax attacks of 2001, the outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), and weapons of mass destruction tabletop exercises have made it clear that no single community can prepare fully, nor respond completely, to a large-scale bioterrorism event.
