This week we highlighted findings from recently published cost-effectiveness studies:
- Various colorectal cancer screening strategies compared on relative impact: Among thirteen different screening strategies for colorectal cancer, colonoscopy was determined to be the most cost-effective strategy (1)
- Addition of bedaquiline to treatment regimen of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis found to be effective: Adding bedaquiline to the treatment regimen of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis in select high burden countries led to improvements in health outcomes and reductions in healthcare costs (9)
- Initial plus extended treatment with apixaban for the treatment of venous thromboembolism found to be cost-effective: In the UK, initial plus extended treatment with apixaban for the treatment and prevention of venous thromboembolism was found to be a cost-effective alternative to low-molecular-weight heparin and vitamin K antagonist (8)
