Pharmacoeconomic analysis of dasatinib as a second-line therapy in patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia
Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is among the nosologies included in the governmental program for supply of medicines to patients with hemophilia, mucoviscidosis, pituitary dwarfism, Gaucher disease, malignant neoplasms in lymphoid, hematopoietic and related tissues, multiple sclerosis, and also after organ and (or) tissue transplantation. Only one medicine, imatinib, is currently available to CML patients within this program. However, 20% to 35% of CML patients have intolerance or develop resistance to imatinib. Therefore, this patient group should receive treatment with the second-generation tyrosine-kinase inhibitors, in particular dasatinib. Pharmacoeconomic analysis is required for dasatinib to be included in the list of expensive medicinal products. This pharmacoeconomic study investigates the use of dasatinib as a second-line CML therapy, based on «cost-effectiveness» and «budget impact» analysis. The study demonstrated that in terms of cost-effectiveness analysis, dasatinib is a strictly preferred alternative as compared to the high doses of imatinib. Moreover, taking into account consumption rate of dasatinib in the real world settings, it is possible to provide treatment to 100% of patients with resistance and/or intolerance to imatinib without additional funding above the total federal budget for CML treatment in 2014.
