Figure 1: Comparison between neglected tropical disease representation in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews and burden of disease disability-adjusted life year metrics: There was a weak positive, nonsignificant correlation between %2010 DALY and number of Cochran reviews and protocols associated with each NTD (rho = 0.281, P = 0.259). Overlaying a line of best fit to the scatter plot of our data visually emphasizes that the number of reviews and protocols per NTD was not strongly associated with %2010 disability-adjusted life year in a linear fashion (R2 = 0.33)
