Summary: Pharmacoeconomic analysis is a flexible tool for the decision-making on different levels in the healthcare system: from the individual patient level to the regional and federal levels. The actuality of such an analysis becomes more and more apparent in the healthcare marked by the annual increase in the implemented and published studies in this area. However, such an increase in evaluations doesn’t guarantee the proportional growth in terms of their quality and complexity. This article focuses on the opportunities of pharmacoeconomic researches, as well as on the usual inaccuracies in the pharmacoeconomic studies in Russia.

In the first part of this publication, the methodology of analyzing the “cost of the disease”, the specifics of its calculation in the conditions of public health of the Russian Federation, various levels of research are considered in detail. The second part of the article is devoted to the presentation of the results of the first domestic study of the economic burden of multiple sclerosis, based on Russian data. The direct and indirect costs associated with multiple sclerosis were calculated. The results of the pharmacoeconomic analysis showed that the economic burden per patient per year depends on the form of the type of the underlying disease and amounts to 418,954 rubles for patients with a remitting type of flow, 556,150 rubles for patients with a returnable progressive type of flow with primary progressive course of multiple sclerosis. For the first time it has been shown that the ratio of direct and indirect costs for multiple sclerosis depends on the type of flow: with a remitting type of flow, direct costs prevail and they account for 65.7%, while for a backward-progressive and primary-progressive, a larger volume is occupied indirect costs, and they are 63.9% and 68.2%, respectively.
