Evaluation of the cost-effectiveness of dexrazoxane for the prevention of anthracycline-related cardiotoxicity in children with sarcoma and haematologic malignancies: a European perspective

Background: Anthracycline-treated childhood cancer survivors are at higher risk of cardiotoxicity, especially with cumulative doses received above 250 mg/m2. Dexrazoxane is the only option recommended for cardiotoxicity prevention in high-risk patients supported by randomised trials but its cost-effectiveness in paediatric cancer patients has not been established.

Bendamustine-rituximab: a cost-utility analysis in first-line treatment of indolent non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in England and Wales

Objective: To evaluate the cost-effectiveness of bendamustine-rituximab (B-R) compared with CHOP-R and CVP-R as first-line treatment for patients with advanced indolent non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL).

Cost-effectiveness of adjunctive eptifibatide in patients undergoing coronary stenting in Germany

Objective: To determine the cost-effectiveness of adding eptifibatide to the standard treatment for selected high-risk patients undergoing coronary stenting in Germany. Furthermore, to investigate the impact of several extrapolation methods on the results.

Cost-effectiveness of warfarin: Trial versus ‘real-life’ stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation

Background and purpose: Previous cost-effectiveness analyses analyzed warfarin for stroke prevention in randomized trial settings. Given the complexities of warfarin treatment, cost-effectiveness should be examined within a real-world setting.

The cost-effectiveness of screening programs using single and multiple birth cohort simulations: a comparison using a model of cervical cancer

Despite early recognition of the theoretical advantages of simulations that include different population subgroups/ strata and different birth cohorts, many modeling-based economic evaluations of cervical screening have been based on unrealistic single birth cohort simulations.
