Tumour-Agnostic Agents: Are They Fit for Reimbursement?
March 19, 2019
In May 2017, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved pembrolizumab, an anti-PD1 immunotherapy, for unresectable or metastatic solid tumours identified as microsatellite instability-high (MSI-H) or mismatch repair deficient (dMMR). This marked the first ever approval for a so-called tumour/site-agnostic indication for an oncology treatment. With several other oncology drugs in development for tumour/site-agnostic indications (e.g. larotrectinib and Debio 1347), the objective of this research was to explore the health technology assessment (HTA) challenges that may arise when assessing these drugs for reimbursement in Europe, should they obtain Marketing Authorization from the European Medicines Agency.

In this unique one-hour webinar, Dr. Jena outlines a broader framework for assessing value to improve identification of not only the highest-value treatments, but also low-value therapies on which spending can safely be reduced.
