Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML) are both hematological malignancies characterized by rapid onset. While AML is more common than ALL, both typically receive cytotoxic chemotherapy in first line. Upon complete remission, patients will be considered for allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT). The economic burden of malignant blood disorders…

CADTH Horizon Scanning bulletins present an overview of the technology and available evidence. They are not systematic reviews and do not involve critical appraisal, nor do they include a detailed summary of study findings. Therefore, they are not intended to provide recommendations for or against a particular technology.
This analysis, published in BMC Psychiatry, aimed to determine cost-effectiveness of a stepped-care pathway for depression in adults in primary care versus standard care (SC), treatment-as-usual (TAU), and online cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
OBJECTIVES: To examine the resource use and healthcare costs for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in Alberta, Canada between 2008 and 2016 and model the future costs to 2030.
Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) is an important indicator in the development and management of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD). Herein, we describe the management of LDL-C with lipid-lowering therapy, among patients diagnosed with clinical ASCVD in Alberta, Canada.
The treatment landscape of multiple myeloma (MM) is rapidly evolving with the availability of new therapeutic options leading to improved responses and survival rates. The INFORMM study, an ongoing, province-wide study in Alberta, Canada (population of 4.3 million in 2018), is examining treatment patterns in a real-world setting using population-based administrative data to better…
The clinical outcomes of patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (NDMM) have improved. However, early mortality (EM) post-diagnosis remains a concern, with incidence ranging from 13% at 2 months to 29% at 1 year after diagnosis. EM can be influenced by patient age, comorbidities, performance status, therapy, and disease biology. Our aim is to examine EM incidence in patients…
Little is known about resource use and cost burden of Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) beyond the index event. We examined resource use and care costs during the first and each subsequent year, among patients with incident AMI.
Eplerenone has been demonstrated as being cost effective for the treatment of patients with systolic heart failure (HF) and mild symptoms in several jurisdictions; however, its cost effectiveness is unknown in the context of Alberta, Canada.
