Figure 2: Cumulative probabilities of different kinds of oral drug therapies as measured by the included outcomes. The Bayesian approach could apply the rank probabilities of each drug therapy and the cumulative probability sum the rank probabilities to give an overall probability. Larger cumulative probability represents the better effect on the improvement of IPSS total score, Qmax, IPSS storage subscore, IPSS voiding score and QoL, which also represent the rank of the drug therapies. ABs: α-blockers; 5ARIs: 5α-reductase inhibitors; MRAs: muscarinic receptor antagonists; PDE5-Is: phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitors (Credited to Wang et al.80).
