Cost-Effectiveness Study Supports Use of EUFLEXXA(TM) by Rheumatologists for Pain Relief in Patients with Knee Osteoarthritis
Date:11/7/2007

ents' utility scores were estimated and used to calculate QALYs. To determine costs, in addition to the costs of HA, patients who responded to HA treatment were assigned costs of health care utilization attributed to patients without OA, and non-responders were assigned costs of health care resources consumed by OA patients. Cost- effectiveness was expressed as average and incremental cost per QALY.

The responder rate for patients in the HA treatment arm was approximately 83 percent, and the mean QALY gained was 0.0877 for each patient responding to treatment with HA over baseline values. When the change of QALY of the non- responders was set as zero, the HA treatment yielded a cost-utility ratio of $38,964, while that of the control group ranged from $36,077 (assuming a 75 percent response rate) to $139,648 (25 percent response rate).

The study concluded that the cost-utility ratio for EUFLEXXA(TM) is within the range needed to adopt a new technology, and that the product's wider adoption would result in greater savings to the health care system.

About EUFLEXXA(TM)

EUFLEXXA(TM) (1% sodium hyaluronate) is the first and only non-avian derived hyaluronic acid approved in the U.S. for the treatment of pain caused by knee osteoarthritis and is indicated for a three-injection treatment regimen for patients who have failed to respond adequately to conservative non-pharmacologic therapy and simple analgesics (eg, acetaminophen). In a prospective, randomized, double-blind, head-to-head study versus the market leading HA therapy, significantly more patients were "pain free" and "symptom free" with EUFLEXXA(TM).(2)

The process used to manufacture EUFLEXXA(TM) produces the HA that most closely resembles the HA in healthy human synovial fluid and the most highly purified HA product available today. In addition, since it is not derived from an avian source (chicken or rooster combs), the risk of reactions related to avian proteins is eliminated.(3-8
