What's New

A new paper characterizes the scientific evidence that contributed to the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) changing "Insufficient Evidence" (I) statements to definitive recommendations when new research closed evidence gaps. Study authors found that while study designs and funding support for scientific articles cited in USPSTF evidence reviews varied widely across topics, overall, the NIH was the largest single funder of evidence informing 11 changed USPSTF I statements between 2010 and 2019.
