Case-Control Studies

"Case-Control Studies" is a descriptor in the National Library of Medicine's controlled vocabulary thesaurus, MeSH (Medical Subject Headings). Descriptors are arranged in a hierarchical structure, which enables searching at various levels of specificity.

Studies which start with the identification of persons with a disease of interest and a control (comparison, referent) group without the disease.
