REFLECT is an evidence-based minimum set of items for trials reporting production, health, and food-safety outcomes.

The aim of the REFLECT Statement is to help authors improve the reporting livestock trials with production, health, and food-safety outcomes. We have focused on both types of randomized trials, field trials and challenge studies in livestock, and the interventions may be therapeutic or preventive.

The REFLECT Statement consists of a 22-item checklist. It is an evolving document that is subject to change periodically as new evidence emerges. This website contains the current definitive version of the REFLECT Statement.
