Dear ElMaestro!

Me not either, but I’m a little bit concerned about the (lacking) α-spending in meta analysis.

See Chapter 16 in Chow & Liu (3rd ed. 2009). They refer to two models (based on 2×2 cross-over studies only), where the first one is rather restrictive – assuming equal CVintra and CVinter across studies. Personal experience: nil.
