New Study Demonstrates Cost Effectiveness of NeuroStar TMS Therapy(R) in the Treatment of Depression
Date:11/6/2008

Cost Savings for the Health Care System May Be Expected With NeuroStar Relative to Standard Care in Patients With Inadequate Benefit to Prior Antidepressant Treatment

MALVERN, Pa., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Neuronetics, Inc. announced today that a new health economic study evaluating the cost effectiveness of its NeuroStar TMS Therapy system in the treatment of depression was presented at the U.S. Psychiatric and Mental Health Congress in San Diego last week. This study is the largest and most comprehensive cost effectiveness study to date of TMS Therapy in patients with major depression who have failed to achieve benefit from prior antidepressant treatment, also called treatment-resistant depression (TRD).

Compared to antidepressant medication treatment as usual, NeuroStar TMS Therapy was demonstrated to be cost effective if reimbursed by third-party payers at rates up to $400 per treatment session, when only health gains were evaluated. When productivity gains due to clinical improvement and reduced caregiver costs were also included, the cost effectiveness was substantially greater. These results were found when comparing open-label NeuroStar TMS Therapy health outcomes in the FDA-indicated patient population to the health outcomes from the antidepressant medications used in the open-label, NIMH-sponsored STAR*D (Sequenced Treatment Alternatives to Relieve Depression) study. In these open-label conditions, which are most like real-world clinical practice, NeuroStar TMS Therapy provided a net cost savings during a year of follow up when compared to antidepressant medication treatment as usual.

"Even under the most conservative modeling assumptions that we tested, TMS Therapy demonstrated an incremental cost effectiveness ratio that did not exceed the most stringent willingness to pay benchmark in the U.S. for a new treatment," said Kit N. Simpson, Dr.PH, health economist at the Medical University of South Carolina and an author of the stud
