Question
I am conducting a systematic review of intervention, and i observed that one included study could determine the statistical significance of the final meta-analysis.
Problem is, that article has been published in a predatory journal, indexed in Medline.

I could find some suggestions in this paper but i'm still in doubt.
What's your thinking?
