Cochrane: The Cochrane Collaboration is an international not-for-profit organisation. It produces and disseminates systematic reviews of healthcare interventions and promotes the search of evidence in the form of clinical trials and other studies of interventions.
Cochrane Reviews are systematic reviews of primary research in human health care and health policy, and are internationally recognised as the highest standard in evidence-based health care. They investigate the effects of interventions for prevention, treatment and rehabilitation. They also assess the accuracy of a diagnostic test for a given condition in a specific patient group and setting. They are published online in The Cochrane Library.

Cochrane Central register of Controlled Trials (CCTR) is a bibliographic database of definitive controlled trials. These controlled trials have been identified by the distinguished contributors to the Cochrane Collaboration.
