... CONCLUSIONS: The number of reviews indicating that the modern biomedical interventions show either no effect or insufficient evidence is surprisingly high. Interrater disagreements suggest a surprising degree of subjective interpretation involved in systematic reviews. Where patterns of disagreement emerged between authors and readers, authors tended to be more optimistic in their conclusions than the readers. Policy implications are discussed.
