Figure 14 is an attrition diagram that depicts the status of documents that Talley Group Ltd. submitted for possible inclusion in the report.

The diagram begins with a box outlining the total submission of three documents. Several boxes ensue which are connected by arrows going from top to bottom which follow the submissions as they are being screened for possible inclusion in the report.

In the first frame, we compare Talley Group's submission to submissions by other interested stakeholders and remove any duplicates. Tally Group had zero duplicate submissions.

An arrow leads from the three Unique Submissions to the Initial Screening Phase where documents may be excluded, used in our Background Section or passed to the next level. In this instance, two documents were identified as case reports and excluded.

One documents was identified for inclusion in our Background Section.

Due to the exclusion of all three submissions at this level, zero submissions remained for possible inclusion in the report. Note: Language has been corrected to reflect screening of meeting abstracts, poster presentations and other documents in addition to abstracts of full articles.
