Psoriasis Cure Now Welcomes Institute of Medicine Report Urging 'Comparative Effectiveness' Research on Psoriasis, But Worries About Risk of Rationing
Date:6/30/2009

ments vary widely in cost, effectiveness, and side-effects. Some patients will trade less effectiveness for fewer side-effects. Others will accept serious long-term risks to feel better now. In addition, some psoriasis treatments cause catastrophic birth defects if given to women who become pregnant while taking them, but help men without these risks. In short, for a researcher to conclude that Treatment A helps an 'average' patient improve for less money than Treatment B, that researcher must make assumptions that may fly in the face of reality for real patients in real-world circumstances.

"It is essential that patient voices be heard throughout the actual comparative effectiveness research, or else this could become just a fancy way to deny advanced, but costly, treatments to people with serious but incurable diseases like psoriasis."
