  This week we highlighted findings from recently published cost-effectiveness studies:

  • Exercise program during cancer treatment cost-effective for colon cancer, but not breast cancer patients: An exercise intervention begun early after diagnosis was found to be more beneficial and less costly for colon cancer patients than for breast cancer patients in the Netherlands. (3)
  • Review of influenza immunization programs evaluate cost-effectiveness of universal versus targeted approaches: A universal approach over a targeted approach was found to be more cost-effective with an emphasis on vaccinating high-risk individuals. (6)
  • Different non-pharmacological treatments reviewed for knee osteoarthritis: A review of 11 non-pharmacological treatments for knee osteoarthritis in the UK found transcutaneous electrical nerve Stimulation (TENS) to be the most cost-effective. Among only higher quality RCTs reviewed, acupuncture was  cost-effective. (9)
