Our objective was to assess the economic impact of a new cytokine therapy that was being compared to standard therapy as supportive care in patients receiving autologous bone marrow transplantation for treatment of lymphoma.
We performed an economic study accompanying a multicenter, randomized, controlled clinical trial in academic medical centers.
One hundred and fifteen patients consented to participate in a parallel economic study of a randomized controlled trial of sequential IL-3 followed by GM-CSF vs GM-CSF alone after autologous bone marrow transplantation.
We measured costs and quality-adjusted survival over a 13-month follow-up period.
For the 13-month study period, the total cost estimates were $79892 (95% CI $69343 to $90544) for patients receiving GM-CSF alone and $89651 (95% CI $79769 to $102114) for patients receiving IL-3/GM-CSF.
The difference was not statistically significant.
During the 13-month study period, the total number of quality-adjusted life-months in the GM-CSF arm was 6.67 (95% CI 5.75 to 7.56) months, while the total number of quality-adjusted life-months in the IL-3 arm was 6.26 (95% CI 5.34 to 7.15) months.
The difference in quality-adjusted life-months between the two treatment arms was not statistically significant. (...)
