This paper describes the use of a linear mixed-effects regression model as a framework for the meta-analysis of published data. It generalizes the random-effects models used by DerSimonian and Laird (1986, Controlled Clinical Trials 7, 177-188) and Begg and Pilote (1991, Biometrics 47, 899-906), and describes the use of the model using examples from these papers and the data given by Tori et al. (1992, Journal of the National Cancer Institute 84, 407-414).
