    How strong is the ACG's recommendation?

    Strong recommendation
    Intervention's desirable effects clearly outweigh undesirable effects.
    Conditional recommendation
    Uncertainty in tradeoffs between desirable & undesirable effects of intervention.
    High quality evidence
    Further research is unlikely to change the confidence in estimate of effect.
    Moderate quality evidence
    Further research would be likely to have an impact on the confidence in the estimate of effect.
    ACG labels the evidence for this recommendation about azathioprine as moderate quality.
    Low quality evidence
    Further research would be expected to have an impact on the confidence in the estimate of effect.
    Very low quality evidence
    Any estimate of effect is very uncertain.
