Current World Literature: Bibliography

    This bibliography is compiled by clinicians from the journals listed at the end of this publication. It is based on literature entered into our database between 1 March 2008 and 28 February 2009 (articles are generally added to the database about two and a half months after publication). In addition, the bibliography contains every paper annotated by reviewers; these references were obtained from a variety of bibliographic databases and published between the beginning of the review period and the time of going to press. The bibliography has been grouped into topics that relate to the reviews in this issue.

    • Papers considered by the reviewers to be of special interest

    •• Papers considered by the reviewers to be of outstanding interest

    The number in square brackets following a selected paper, e.g. [7], refers to its number in the annotated references of the corresponding review.
