- CADTH COVID-19 Search Strings: https://covid.cadth.ca/literature-searching-tools/cadth-covid-19-search-strings/
These search strings for topics related to COVID-19 have been developed and peer-reviewed by Research Information Specialists at CADTH. However, they have not been validated against a gold standard set of articles. Note, too, that the vocabulary and subject headings surrounding these topics are continuously changing. Individuals using these strings are therefore responsible for ensuring they are accurate, complete, and up-to-date. Specific PubMed links are included wherever possible.
- CADTH COVID-19 Grey Literature Resources: https://covid.cadth.ca/literature-searching-tools/cadth-covid-19-grey-literature-resources/
A Curated List of Evidence-Based Sources for Health Professionals, Librarians, and Researchers
CADTH?s Research Information Services team has compiled this COVID-19 grey literature resource list, which highlights freely accessible evidence-based sources of grey literature on this topic. Grey literature includes government information and reports that are not published commercially and that may be inaccessible via bibliographic databases. This resource list is intended for use by health professionals, librarians, and information specialists, as well as the health technology assessment research community seeking information specific to COVID-19.
The CADTH COVID-19 grey literature resource list is organized by topic and jurisdiction. This is not an exhaustive list of COVID-19 resources. The list prioritizes Canadian resources and high-quality rapid knowledge syntheses. It will be updated regularly as new resources become available. Because of the continuously evolving nature of the internet, CADTH cannot be held responsible for occasional inaccuracies due to website changes.

Many clinical trials and systematic reviews are already underway, or will begin shortly, to strengthen the evidence base for the COVID-19 response. Core outcome sets (COS), showing the outcomes that should be measured and reported in these studies, will ensure that this evidence base will contain, as a minimum, the key information needed by decision makers about the effects of interventions. This briefing paper has been prepared by COMET to summarise work to date on COS for COVID-19 and the COMET team will try to respond to any queries you have about it. COMET will also facilitate contact with COS developers to help determine which COS may be most relevant to your particular research study.

Up to April 15, 2020 we have screened 4,624 records, included 10 RCTs and 56 observational studies. Today we have identified and included 1 new RCT assessing the efficacy and safety of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) plus standard-of-care (SOC) compared with SOC alone in adult patients with COVID-19. We also identified one emulated trial evaluating the clinical efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in 181 patients with documented SARS-CoV-2 pneumonia requiring oxygen and 3 new observational studies. Characteristics of the randomized trials identified, including a complete description of the assessment of each risk of bias domain with supports for judgement and forest plots are available here. Up to April 9, 2020, we found 275 RCTs registered. Thanks to a collaboration with the CNRS, some teams are currently working with us to improve the visualisation of the data.
