Abstract

With the available data from the studies, both heterogeneity and publication biases imply that the current clinical use of FDDs is not supported by high-quality evidence. In the absence of reliable evidence, the use of FDDs in patients eligible for more conventional treatments should be restricted to controlled clinical trials.
