Health Economics Model Shows That Dermagraft® Combined With Conventional Care is a Cost-Effective Treatment for Diabetic Foot Ulcers in Medicare and Commercially Insured Populations
Date:6/24/2011

SAN DIEGO, June 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced BioHealing, Inc. (ABH), a leader in commercializing living cell-therapies, a cornerstone technology in the field of regenerative medicine, today announced results from a health economics model developed by The Lewin Group (Falls Church, VA) that showed the addition of Dermagraft® to conventional care for the treatment of chronic diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) resulted in a significant therapeutic and cost benefit compared to conventional care alone in both Medicare and commercially insured populations.

Results demonstrated that additional costs for Dermagraft were offset by medical savings from accelerated wound healing and reduced DFU complications and amputations. Significantly more DFUs were healed using Dermagraft plus conventional care compared to conventional care alone. The model also found that patients receiving Dermagraft were predicted to have fewer ulcer-related amputations and bone resections at 52 weeks than those receiving conventional care alone and that Dermagraft plus conventional care provided a significant reduction in the 52-week cost of care for patients with DFUs, as compared to conventional care alone.

"Diabetes and associated complications, like DFUs, place a significant economic burden on the U.S. healthcare system, with Medicare spending 32 percent of its total budget on beneficiaries with diabetes," said Dean Tozer, Senior Vice President of ABH. "The data provides an example of how advanced therapies, like Dermagraft, can be cost-effective for the Medicare system, and has the potential to change the entire discussion around how advanced therapies can be part of the solution to reducing future costs of Medicare."

Results from the model (abstract number: 0053-LB) will be presented at the American Diabetes Association 71st Scientific Sessions during the General Poster Session II on Sunday, June 26, 2011 from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. PDT
