Effectiveness of mammography screening in reducing breast cancer mortality in women aged 39-49 years: a meta-analysis

This review concluded that mammography screenings were effective and reduced breast cancer mortality in women aged 39 to 49 by 17%.

The conclusion as a whole is likely to be reliable.

Understanding barriers for adherence to follow-up care for abnormal Pap tests

The authors concluded that interventions focusing on psychological, educational and communication barriers should be adapted and applied to reach all women at high risk of cervical cancer.

Aerobic exercise and lipids and lipoproteins in women: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials

This review assessed the effects of aerobic exercise on lipids and lipoproteins in women. The authors concluded that aerobic exercise effectively increased high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and decreased total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglycerides. The conclusions reflect the data presented. However, given the large number of analyses performed and the poor-quality of the included trials, the validity of the conclusions is uncertain.

The effects of core and lower extremity strengthening on pregnancy-related low back and pelvic girdle pain: a systematic review

This review concluded that most studies reported a reduction in pain with exercise, but there was insufficient evidence to support exercise as the standard treatment for pregnancy-related back pain and pelvic girdle pain. These conclusions reflect the evidence presented, but the limitations of the methods and reporting mean that the conclusions may not be wholly reliable.
