Abstract

PharmacoEconomics & Outcomes News 784, p7 - 12 Aug 2017 AEs have economic impact in patients with NSCLC Adverse events (AEs) associated with treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) including immunotherapies have an economic impact, according to findings of a French study published in ClinicoEconomics and Outcomes Research. Costs of grade 3 and 4 treatment-related AEs reported in ≥1% of patients with NSCLC receiving docetaxel, erlotinib, nivolumab, pembrolizumab, pemetrexed + carboplatin + bevacizumab, ramucirumab + docetaxel, or platinum-based chemotherapies, in phase III clinical trials were evaluated from a French national health insurance perspective. Overall, 24 AEs were identified. Estimated total costs varied from €46 per event to €7742 per year, and were greater than €2000 for 14 AEs. Costs were highest for immunotherapy-related type 1 diabetes mellitus (€7742 per year), and for pneumonitis, anaemia, dehydration and anorexia (€5786, €5752, €5207 and €4349 per event, respectively), and were primarily due to hospitalisation costs.
