Systematic reviews are routinely used for scientific purposes in clinical studies, and are also currently rapidly gaining more attention in the field of animal research. Systematic overviews of all scientific literature on a well-defined specific research question are an important tool to improve the scientific quality of animal experiments, to improve translation of data generated from animals into the clinical situation, and to avoid unnecessary duplication of animal experiments, which are both an ethical and legal obligation. The aim of systematic reviews is to provide a comprehensive, objective, evidence-based and up-to-date overview of the current knowledge, which can be quantitatively summarized by means of a meta-analysis. Therefore, systematic reviews may result in new insights without having to use new animals. Systematic reviews can actually replace and refine animal experiments by better understanding the problems and limitations in previous experiments and by reducing the number of animals needed. This course objective is to encourage the use and conduct of systematic reviews and meta-analysis in animal research in order to 1) increase scientific quality, 2) to improve translation of animal data to the clinical situation, and 3) to prevent unnecessary duplication of animal studies.
