Consumer involvement
Consumer representative: Mr David Kirby (Oesophageal Patients Association, UK)Any relevant involvement by consumers (people with the relevant health care condition, their carers, policy makers, healthprofessional, and others who may make use of the reviews prepared by the CRG) is welcomed by the UGPD Group. Atpresent, consumers act as peer referees for protocols and reviews which have been prepared by the UGPD Group. However,we intend to expand the role of consumers, possibly to include production of patient support and information leaflets, andwelcome enquiries from interested parties.

Conflict of interest
Background
Discussions concerning the formation of an Upper Gastrointestinal (GI) Cochrane Review Group (CRG) began in 1993, whena number of meetings were held to develop the work of the Cochrane Collaboration in GI disease in general. These led to theformation of the Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) CRG and the Hepatobiliary CRG. It was clear that there was also a needfor a CRG in upper GI disease, not least because of the enormous health service costs involved in the clinical management ofdyspepsia, and the burgeoning number of clinical trials of variable quality.
Professor David Forman, now Co-ordinating Editor of the UGPD Group, has a long established research interest in the clinicalimpact of Helicobacter pylori infection. This seemed to be a subject that demanded methodologically robust review if it was tolead to meaningful and practical conclusions for doctors and their patients.
A "Dyspepsia CRG" exploratory meeting took place on 16th October 1996 in Copenhagen. All those who had contacted theCochrane Collaboration with an interest in this area of medicine were invited. Also present were people known to have aninterest in reviews of dyspepsia, representatives of the IBD and Hepatobiliary CRGs, the Cochrane Cancer Network, and thetwo pharmaceutical companies (Glaxo-Wellcome and Astra Hassle), who had agreed to support the event. The meeting waschaired by Andy Oxman on behalf of the Collaboration.
There was unanimous and enthusiastic support in favour of establishing a CRG, although it was felt that the scope of theGroup should also include all diseases of the oesophagus, stomach and duodenum (including malignancies). To reflect thiswidened scope, a provisional title of "Oesophageal, Gastric and Duodenal Diseases CRG" was adopted. It was agreed thatThe University of Leeds should be the editorial base and that Professor Forman should be the prospective Co-ordinatingEditor.
Cochrane Upper Gastrointestinal and Pancreatic Diseases Group The name changed again in February 1998 to Upper Gastrointestinal and Pancreatic Diseases Group (UGPD), to reflect theintegration of pancreatic diseases into the scope of the Group.
Formal registration of the UGPD Group took place on 1 June 1998.
The editorial base for the UGPD group at Leeds University (UK) closed on March 31, 2010 at which time the Satellite UGPDgroup at McMaster University in Canada became the main editorial base, with Professor Paul Moayyedi as Co-ordinatingEditor.

"To use evidence from randomised controlled trials to answer practical questions of the prevention, treatment andrehabilitation of benign and malignant disorders of the oesophagus, stomach, duodenum and pancreas. Systematic reviews ofother types of trials will be used where necessary." ,. OtherCochrane Review Groups (CRGs) which share a potential common interest include those which address interventions whichmay have an effect on the upper gastrointestinal system (for example, NSAIDs in musculoskeletal problems). Every attemptwill be made to ensure that duplication of work does not occur and that support is given to other CRGs who wish to takeresponsibility for review topics where there is mutual interest. In particular, we would aim to support CRGs by suggesting peerreferees and by searching our specialised register for appropriate trials. All interventions (surgical, pharmacological,educational, psychological etc.) for prevention, treatment (acute and maintenance) and rehabilitation will be covered.
The CRG's policy on outcome variables is under development. Many reviews will include death, recurrence of illness,improvement of symptoms, or eradication of Helicobacter pylori as an outcome.
Glossary
Specialised register
Inclusion criteria
The specialised register for the group includes reports of trials in any language, in the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation
of benign and malignant diseases of the upper gastrointestinal tract including disorders of the oesophagus, stomach,
duodenum and pancreas.
Gastrointestinal adverse effects of certain treatments, for example NSAIDs, are also included in the register of clinical trials.
Oesophageal and gastric varices are included by the Hepato-Biliary group, pancreatic complications of cystic fibrosis arecovered by the Cystic Fibrosis Group and these are therefore not included in the UGPD register. A full list of the subjects thatare covered by the group's specialised register is given in the Topics list.
Search strategies for the identification of studies
Electronic searches
The UGPD Group searches The Cochrane Controlled Trials Register to identify controlled clinical trials for inclusion in the
specialised register. Handsearching of specialist journals and conference proceedings are being carried out to uncover further
studies. Relevant unpublished studies will be included where available.
The UGPD Group Search Strategy for The Cochrane Controlled Trials Register has been derived from MeSH subjectheadings of digestive system diseases and surgical procedures, which are relevant to the scope of the Group. Appropriatefree text terms have been used in conjunction with the MeSH headings to identify reports of randomised and controlled clinicaltrials. This strategy is under development and further search terms will be added to ensure that all trials relevant to the scopeof the UGPD Group are retrieved.
In particular, further work is required to ensure that treatments and all surgical interventions for the upper gastrointestinal tractand the pancreas are adequately covered by the search terms.
The Cochrane Controlled Trials Register is searched quarterly, after each new issue of the Cochrane Library, using thefollowing strategy. Staff at the UGPD entity have recently update the search strategy and register and are simultaneouslypublishing an updated register with this module (XXXX 2010).

The UGPD has registered with the US Cochrane Centre their intention to handsearch the following specialist journals:
Journals:
Alimentary Pharmacology and TherapeuticsCanadian Journal of GastroenterologyClinical Gastroenterology and HepatologyDigestive EndoscopyDiseases of the EsophagusEuropean Journal of Gastroenterology & HepatologyGastrointestinal Endoscopy Clinics of North AnericaHelicobacterPancreasNeurogastroenterology and MotilityThe Turkish Journal of Gastroenterology Conference Proceeding:
Digestive Disease Week. 1997 May 11-14; Washington DC.
Journals being handsearched by the Biomed project for the UGPD GroupThe Biomed handsearching project is a three year project in which seven European Cochrane Centres collaborate tohandsearch western European specialized health care journals. The Biomed project has undertaken to handsearch thefollowing journals on behalf of the UGPD group: Cochrane Upper Gastrointestinal and Pancreatic Diseases Group Acta EndoscopiaActa Gastro-enterologica BelgicaAnnales de Gastroenterologie et d'HepatologieChirurgia GastroenterologicaChirurgische Gastroenterologie Endoskopie HeuteGastrum Patologia del Aparato Digestva. Gastro-Enterologie Clinique et BiologieGastro-Enterologia y HepatologiaGastroenterologisches JournalItalian Journal of Gastroenterology and HepatologyRevisiones en Gastroenterologia. Revista Andaluza de Patologia DigestivaRevista de la Asociacion Castellana del Aparato DigestivoRevista Espanola de Enfermedades DigestivasRevue Francaise de Gastro-enterologieSociedad Valenciana de Patologia Digestiva Other strategies
For each review a search strategy is produced based on relevant clinical terms agreed by the author and the Trials Search
Co-ordinator. The search strategy is constructed using a combination of Mesh terms and free text terms. All reports of
randomised controlled trials identified whilst searching will be added to the Group's Specialised Register. Where applicable,
the following information sources are searched using an individual search strategy developed for each review:
The Cochrane LibraryMedlineEmbaseCinahlWeb of ScienceLILACS PsychINFOAMED The UGPD Group has been fortunate to receive bibliographies from Adam Harris (UK), Richard Hunt (Canada) and Jean PaulGalmiche (France), which have been searched and the relevant trials added to our specialised register.
Planned searching activities
We have identified several non-English language journals and conference proceedings which we feel may contain reports of
trials relevant to our Group. These include Japanese Journal of Gastroenterology, Gastroenterological Society of Taiwan
Journal, Endoskopie Heute, and many others. However, at present we are unable to identify handsearchers for these,
accordingly we have not registered them on the Cochrane Handsearching Masterlist. If you are able to help us with searching
non-English language journals, please contact our Trials Search Co-ordinator.
Methods used in reviews
Search strategies
Access to specialised register by authors
The specialised register is available for all authors to consult through the Cochrane Library. However, to avoid duplication of
searching activities and to provide authors with a comprehensive search of the database, the Trials Search Co-ordinator will
liaise with authors to construct and develop search strategies for each review, to be carried out at the editorial base. Searches
for updating reviews will be carried out at the editorial base by the Trials Search Co-ordinator on an annual basis.
Additional search strategies
The Trials Search Co-ordinator will work with the author to create a specific search strategy for each author, which will then be
run in EMBASE and MEDLINE in addition to the Cochrane Library. The UGPD Group also liaises with the Cancer Network
when searching for authors with cancer related topics. In order to identify unpublished trials, experts in the field and
pharmaceutical companies will be contacted for information, and, where applicable, the Internet will also be searched. Reports
of trials found by these methods will be added to the UGPD register of trials. Authors should search citations in each trial
report for additional trials.
Study selection
The UGPD Group recommends that the trials included are randomised, pseudorandomised or controlled clinical trials which
compare the test intervention with placebo or standard treatment. Other types of trials can be used where necessary.
Selection of studies for inclusion in a review should be performed independently by more than one author. The editorassigned to the review will work to resolve differences in study selection between authors.
Assessment of methodological quality
Procedures for the assessment of methodological quality are under development.
Cochrane Upper Gastrointestinal and Pancreatic Diseases Group Advice on standard criteria for assessing quality will be given by the editorial team. Examples of quality assessment checklistsare available. Methods are described in the Cochrane Authors Handbook which is available from the editorial team, on theCochrane library and via the Cochrane Web sites.
An accepted method of quality assessment should be used.
Quality should be independently assessed by more than one author and the level of agreement should be reported inthe review.
The editor responsible for the development of the review will resolve difference in quality assessment between authors.
Quality assessment will be reported in the methods and results sections of the review.
Data collection
The UGPD group recommends that the extraction of data is done independently by more than one author. The editor
responsible for the development of the review will resolve difference in data interpretation between authors. Data verification
with the person responsible for the study will not normally be required other than where the data is unpublished or
confirmation of results are required.
Data from RCTs that have not been published will be eligible for use in systematic reviews prepared by the UGPD group,subject to verification of data by the primary investigator. The UGPD Group will not routinely collect and analyse data on rareadverse events collected from non-RCTS.
The UGPD group will request copies of data extraction forms (for included studies) to be submitted to the group when a draftreview is submitted for peer referee. Data extraction forms will be retained by the group, for reference or to aid a futurereview updater, should an initial review author not be able to update a review. Data extraction forms will not be published norused in any other way by the group or its members.
Analysis
Statistical guidance is available from the editorial base (Statistical Editor: Noori Akhtar-Danesh).
Data entry to RevMan should be done using the double data entry facility which allows more than one author to independently
enter dataPolicies on statistical methods are under development.
These will incorporate guidance derived from Section 9 of the Authors Handbook on analysing data and undertaking meta-analyses.
Heterogeneity of trials and issues such as crossover trials will be addressed.
Reporting of reviews
Discussion and conclusions section
The strength of the evidence should be categorised using the hierarchy of evidence scale detailed in CRD report 4, available
from the editorial base.
The applicability of the results should be commented on taking into account the applicability of the trials to use of theintervention in standard practice for treatment of the disorder. Cost benefit analysis will not be routinely performed.
The use of non-RCT derived data when discussing results and drawing conclusions should be commented on in this section.
Where applicable, other reviews will be cross-referenced in this section.
Tables and figuresInformation in the excluded and excluded trials tables should be brief and structured to include the Study Identifier, Methods ofthe Trial, Participants, Interventions, Outcomes, and further Notes.
Each included study should ideally include a "Risk of bias" table including information on each study's and/or individualoutcomes for bias from: sequence generation; allocation concealment; blinding; incomplete data, selective reporting or othermeans.
Studies in the excluded trials table should consist of those trials which were initially selected for assessment, but which laterproved to be non-RCTs or ineligible for other reasons. Advice is available from the editorial team on the validity of trials forinclusion into the review.
Table of comparisons
Policies for the structure or order of outcomes are under development and depend to some extent on the outcomes we select
as 'default' for this group.
The order of trials in the tables will be alphabetical, then by date. Trials will be named preferably by author surname (e.g.
Smith 1998) or, where this is not possible, by trial group identifiers (e.g. Oesophageal Cancer Trials Collaborators GroupOCTCG 1997).
There may be multiple publications from one trial. Such reports should be cross referenced to the original study, for example, Cochrane Upper Gastrointestinal and Pancreatic Diseases Group a publication by Jones et al reporting data from the Oesophageal Trials Collaborators Group study of 1997, should bereported as Jones 1999 (OCTCG 1997).
Any factors which could be perceived as conflict of interest should be stated.
Editorial process
Titles
Review authors are invited to submit tiles at any time. In order to reduce the risk of wasted effort, a title should always be
registered with the Editorial Base before the review author starts work.
The preferred format is: [Intervention] in [disorder], and may specify in which population e.g. older people.
Newly registered titles will be publicised throughout the Cochrane Collaboration with the aim of increasing awareness of areasof potential common interest.
Protocols are normally expected within 6 months of acceptance of a title.
If more than one person proposes doing the same review then the UGPD Group will invite both persons to co-operate in thepreparation of the review, either by working together, or by independently analysing data and comparing the results. The Co-ordinating Editor will work with the authors to resolve disagreements about authorship of a review.
Protocols
The UGPD Group editorial team supports authors in the preparation of protocols by providing methodological advice,
formulation and execution of search strategies, provision of RevMan software and other Cochrane Collaboration materials
such as the handbook for authors and training and support as required on an ad hoc basis. Informal advice is available
through the Review Group Co-ordinator.
At least three referees are asked to provide comments on each protocol. In general these will be: a person with experience ofCochrane methodology, a clinical expert and a consumer. These referees are usually from outside the editorial team, buteditors may be asked to provide referee comments for protocols other than those for which they have editorial responsibility.
In the case of methodological difficult or clinically contentious issues, comments may be sought from additional peer referees.
Once comments from referees have been returned to the author, the author is asked to modify the protocol as appropriateand return this to the Review Group Co-ordinator (by submitting it for editorial process through Archie) with a commentary ofthe changes made and how these address the referees' comments.
Referees will be sent copies of the other referees' comments and the author's response, once the protocol is approved forpublication.
Once approved by the contact editor, the editorial team will check and approve the protocol. Final approval for publication willbe given by the Co-ordinating Editor. Copy editing will not be done routinely by the UGPD Group at the protocol stage.
The UGPD Group's policy for resolving disagreements between the editorial team and authors or between the authorsthemselves, about the content of the protocol, is to attempt to resolve such issues by informal discussion. In the event anissue cannot be resolved, the advice of the director of the UK Cochrane Centre will be sought.
Time between submission of protocol and receipt of the completed review should normally be two years or less. After
this time, protocols will be judged to have 'expired' and will be removed from the Cochrane Library with a note to that effect in
the What's New section.
Reviews
The UGPD Group editorial team supports authors in the preparation of reviews by providing methodological advice,
formulation and execution of search strategies, provision of RevMan software and other Cochrane Collaboration materials
such as the handbook for authors and training and support as required on an ad hoc basis. Informal advice is available

Inthe case of methodological difficult or clinically contentious issues, comments may be sought from additional peer referees.
Where possible, comments will be sought from the same peer referees who commented on the protocol.
After comments from referees have been returned to the authors, the authors are asked to modify the review as appropriateand return it to the Review Group Co-ordinator with a commentary of the changes made and how these address the referees'comments.
Once approved by an editor, the editorial team will check and approve the review. Final approval for publication will be givenby the Co-ordinating Editor. Copy editing will not be done routinely by the UGPD Group but completed reviews are submittedto Wiley's copy editing service and authors will be expected to amend their reviews to reflect these copy edit comments before Cochrane Upper Gastrointestinal and Pancreatic Diseases Group The UGPD Group's policy for resolving disagreements between the editorial team and authors or between the authorsthemselves, about the content of the protocol, is to attempt to resolve such issues by informal discussion. In the event anissue cannot be resolved, the advice of the director of the UK Cochrane Centre will be sought.
Referees will be sent copies of the other referees' comments and the author's response, once the review is approved forpublication.
Updating
Review authors will obtain newly identified information which may be relevant to their review from the specialised register on
an annual basis.
Reviews will be updated annually when new studies are identified. If no new trials are found at the annual update search, anote will be made on the published review to this effect.
Updates of reviews will not normally be subject to the peer referee process as described for reviews unless the conclusions ofthe review are substantially altered by the addition of new data.
Feedback
Brendan Delaney is the Feedback Editor appointed by the UGPD, and will oversee the process of dealing with comments and
criticisms.
Out of date reviews
Policy to be developed.
Disagreements about updates
The UGPD Group's policy for resolving disagreements between the editorial team and authors or between the authors
themselves, about the content of the protocol, is to attempt to resolve such issues by informal discussion. In the event an
issue cannot be resolved, the advice of the director of the UK Cochrane Centre will be sought.
Plagiarism
The Group upholds an author's right to intellectual property and will not tolerate plagiarism. Authors are requested to properly
cite or paraphrase another author's work. Copying and pasting the work of others is not acceptable. Authors are expected to
create original text and analyses. The Group has procedures in place to detect plagiarism at all stages of review development,
including title registration. Authors suspected of plagiarism will be confronted. Depending on the severity of plagiarism an
author may be given guidance on how rephrase or quote another's work or, in extreme cases, banned from any further work
with the group.
