AEs have economic impact in patientswithNSCLC 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. "This study may be of interest for economic evaluations of new interventions in NSCLC," the authors commented. "Among the identified AEs, a majority appeared to have an important economic impact, with a management cost of at least €2,000 mainly driven by hospitalization costs," they concluded. * 2017 euros Chouaid C, et al.
