Objective.-A two-part meta-analysis of studies examining the relationship of vitamin A supplementation and child mortality.
Data Sources.-We identified studies by searching the MEDLARS database from 1966 through 1992 and by scanning Current Contents and bibliographies of pertinent articles.
Study Selection.-All 12 vitamin A controlled trials with data on mortality identified in the search were used in the analysis.
Data Extraction.-Data were independently extracted by two investigators who also assessed the quality of each study using a previously described method.
Data Synthesis.-We formally tested for heterogeneity across studies.
