Abstract

Given the insufficient clinical investigation to understand the protection mechanisms, the public authorities are seeking to optimize health spending with better quality drugs on the Algerian market. The globalization of biomedical research provided systematic information, we need a tool like meta analysis which will allow us to synthesize and adapt this knowledge in our health system. Meta analysis is the systematic approach summarizing the conclusions of a collection of studies conducted independently on a specific research problem, in many medical specialties. Using different meta-analysis techniques it is possible to classify the products according to their effectiveness and assess the risk / benefit ratio. In this article we use the Bayesian approach in the context of multi-processing meta-analysis, we essentially rely on Gibbs sampling to solve the posterior distributions. We are studying the important role of integrating the tools for synthesizing published trials via the multi-treatment meta-analysis into three treatments plus placebo for people with bipolar disorder.
