Tafamidis: Approval denotes proven added benefit
Date:9/17/2012

>Positive effect in neurological disorders only limited

Only one of the two relevant studies (Fx-005) provided reliable data - and only for patients with a particular genetic defect (Val30Met). The second study (Fx1A-201) in adults with different genetic defects was not controlled, i.e. here the effect of tafamidis was not directly compared with another treatment. It remains unclear how the results of the reliable study can be applied to the patients with genetic defects other than Val30Met.

Assessment of the study data according to the methods of IQWiG produced a hint of a positive effect of tafamidis in respect of the progression of nerve damage. However the effect was only minor.

With regard to other patient-relevant outcomes (other symptoms and side effects, mortality, quality of life), the Institute was unable to identify any further statistically significant advantages or disadvantages of tafamidis compared with the comparator treatment.

G-BA decides on the extent of added benefit

The dossier assessment is part of the overall procedure for early benefit assessment conducted by the G-BA. After publication of the manufacturer's dossier and its assessment by IQWiG, the G-BA initiates a formal commenting procedure which provides further information and can result in a change to the benefit assessment. The G-BA then decides on the extent of the added benefit, thus completing the early benefit assessment.
