Dear Martin

Unless either (a) the primary studies have published the adjusted OR, or 
(b) you have the original data and can calculate it then I think the 
answer is that waht you want to do is not possible.

That is, I need part of the crude OR, an adjusted OR for example, by age, cholesterol, sex, etc. Could I be oriented to achieve this type of adjustment in the meta analysis?
