We have developed an instrument to assess the methodological quality of network meta-analyzes and indirect comparisons based on International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR) tool. This instrument includes 15 questions on five aspects (domains): the evidence base, analysis, presentation of results, interpretation, conflict of interests. For each domain the estimate is given informally then the general credibility (methodological quality) of the research is assessed.
