This table showed the search strategy used in a systematic review and meta-analysis. The aim of the article was to investigate the efficacy and safety of dupilumab in the treatment of bullous pemphigoid. We searched Embase, MEDLINE, and SCI-Web of Science from inception until Sep 8, 2022, and search strategy for each database is provided in the table.


Steps to reproduce

The search strategy used in the paper follows a principle, "subject term + synonym". Take one of the keywords in this paper "bullous pemphigoid" as an example, search the database for the Mesh term "bullous pemphigoid" and record the synonyms at the bottom of the page. The search formula is "Pemphigoid, Bullous"[MeSH Terms] OR “Pemphigoid, Bullous” [Title/Abstract] OR “bullous pemphigoid” [Title/Abstract]. If the corresponding subject term does not exist, search by connecting "bullous pemphigoid" and all synonyms with “OR”.
