Real-World Study Demonstrated Economic Benefits of Pegfilgrastim Biosimilar for the Prevention of Febrile Neutropenia

Shots:

  • The real-world study evaluates the cost-effectiveness of pegfilgrastim biosimilars vs filgrastim biosimilars in patients with high & intermediate risk of FN
  • In both groups, PEG led to 0.28 & 0.12 QALYs gained, 0.32 & 0.14 LYs gained, 0.43 & 0.18 FN events prevented/patient. Additionally, a reduction in FN incidence resulted in lower costs for inpatient FN management in the high-risk groups, PEG reference products were also superior to FIL reference product
  • In both groups, the use of pegfilgrastim biosimilars could optimize the management of FN risk. Pegfilgrastim biosimilar was cost-saving over filgrastim biosimilar for the high-risk group & remained dominant for the intermediate-risk group
