So, how does this compare to the spend of our healthcare on caring for long-term diseases? Think dialysis, enzyme replacement therapies, oligonucleotide therapies and the like... Dave gives his take on this, ICER's health economics evaluation and how they are working with the healthcare system and payers around reimbursement from instalment plans to amortisation.
Anthony also gives some insight into his research, which hypothesised that if the three recently approved advanced therapies (Kymriah, Yescarta, Luxterna) reached 100% market penetrance at current North American pricing then the effect of that on North American drug spend would be LESS than a 0.1% increase. A comparable situation at 20% had the spend more than double.
