Recommendations made by the USPSTF are independent of the U.S. government. They should not be construed as an official position of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

In the interest of seeking feedback on the most current evidence available and providing all the evidence considered in its deliberation, the USPSTF is posting three Evidence Summaries for public comment and providing three Evidence Reviews and a Modeling Report as additional background information. While the systematic evidence reviews provide comprehensive details on the approach and the majority of the evidence, the Evidence Summaries provide the most up-to-date evidence. Therefore, the USPSTF is posting the Evidence Summaries for public comment. Evidence Summaries are manuscripts derived from the review that will be published in a peer-reviewed journal.
