[. . .] I3 group: 38.3% (41/107); and

4. I4 group: 49.1% (53/108).

The comparison of all four groups indicated that there were significantly higher rates of cure among the two terbinafine groups, as well as measures of all secondary clinical outcomes at week 72; however, the researchers did not identify any differences between the number or type of adverse events recorded in the terbinafine or itraconazole groups.

Conclusion: Based on their findings, Evans and Sigurgeirsson concluded that, "Continuous terbinafine is significantly more effective than intermittent itraconazole in the treatment of patients with toenail onychomycosis" (1999, p. 1031).

Key Points: Finding what you need in the age of information is like trying to drink from a fire hose. The authors describe several popular online research resources and how researchers can use them to their maximum advantage.

Overview: On the one hand, there is more relevant medical information available to researchers today than ever before; on the other hand, though, finding precisely what is needed in an efficient fashion involves a knowledge of what resources are available and how best to use them to find what is wanted. Moreover, finding gold-standard studies that rely on randomized controlled trials and are published in the English language within a certain timeframe (the past 3-5 years is common) can be a challenging enterprise if certain steps are not taken to use the Boolean arguments that are available in MEDLINE and other reliable online research resources such as Excerpta Medica, Science Citation Index. Many healthcare practitioners, especially orthopedic surgeons who lack training in these areas, may not have the requisite search skills needed to access the best of evidence-based practices available online today.

Search Techniques: The authors provide several useful (at the time) tips and guidelines for medical researchers to help them locate relevant studies of interest as well as specific papers using various indexing methods… [END OF PREVIEW]
