Cost-utility analysis of fracture risk assessment using microRNAs compared with standard tools and no monitoring in the Austrian female population

Cost-utility analysis of fracture risk assessment using microRNAs compared with standard tools... BackgroundOsteoporosis poses an immense burden to the society in terms of morbidity, mortality and financial cost. To reduce this burden, it is essential to accurately assess the individual patient's fracture risk and, where indicated, to initiate appropriate treatment that reduces fracture probability. Current screening and monitoring approaches include utilization of FRAX®, a web-based country-specific fracture risk assessment tool, and bone mineral density measurement by Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA). Recently, microRNAs have been recognized as important regulators of bone physiology and potential biomarkers for fracture risk assessment and monitoring. A fracture risk assessment tool based on microRNAs (osteomiR™ test) is currently being developed. The aim of this study was to estimate the cost-effectiveness of fracture risk screening, monitoring, and resulting treatment decisions for the Austrian female population using the osteomiR™ test compared with DXA, with FRAX®, or with no screening/monitoring. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Bone Elsevier

Abstract

BackgroundOsteoporosis poses an immense burden to the society in terms of morbidity, mortality and financial cost. To reduce this burden, it is essential to accurately assess the individual patient's fracture risk and, where indicated, to initiate appropriate treatment that reduces fracture probability. Current screening and monitoring approaches include utilization of FRAX®, a web-based country-specific fracture risk assessment tool, and bone mineral density measurement by Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA). Recently, microRNAs have been recognized as important regulators of bone physiology and potential biomarkers for fracture risk assessment and monitoring. A fracture risk assessment tool based on microRNAs (osteomiR™ test) is currently being developed. The aim of this study was to estimate the cost-effectiveness of fracture risk screening, monitoring, and resulting treatment decisions for the Austrian female population using the osteomiR™ test compared with DXA, with FRAX®, or with no screening/monitoring.
