Targeting nerve growth factor, a new option for treatment of osteoarthritis: a network meta-analysis of comparative efficacy and safety with traditional drugs

Structure of network formed by interventions. The lines between treatment nodes indicate the direct comparisons made within randomised controlled trials. Numbers (n/n) near the line indicate ‘number of trials/number of participants’ of the related comparisons. (A) the network plot of main network metanalysis. (B) the network plot of subgroup analysis comparing different selective COX-2 inhibitor and traditional NSAIDs.
