    Article, Communication - En anglais

    Official Symposia of the World Conference on Hypertension Control. Ottawa CAN, 1995/06/21.

    Pharmacoeconomics, the science of assigning costs and outcomes of drug therapy can be applied to antihypertensive drug therapy.

    There are five principle tools : cost identification, cost minimization, cost benefit, cost effectiveness and cost utility.

    If only drug aquisition costs are considered, there are marked differences among antihypertensive drug classes.

    These differences become less marked when the costs per quality adjusted life year are calculated.

    Often, differences among patients rather than dlfferences among drug prices account for the bulk of variation.
