Figure 2

Comparison of odds ratio in palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia (PPE)/Hand foot syndrome (HFS). The summary of OR was calculated using the random effect model. Squares are ORs of PPE/HFS for separate trials. Horizontal lines through the squares represent 95% CIs. The diamond represents the overall OR of PPE/HFS from the meta-analysis and the corresponding 95% CIs. The horizontal line with an arrow indicates the trial with highest OR. The studies that enrolled liposomal doxorubicin and conventional anthracyclines were separated into two groups for this analysis. Abbreviations: CI: Confidence interval; OR: Odd ratio; PPE.
