An indirect treatment comparison is a method of deriving a comparative estimate between two treatments (treatment A and treatment B) which are not directly compared in head to head trials (or other studies), but which have both been compared to another intervention (treatment C). Treatments A and B can be indirectly compared via the common comparator C.
