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

at the San Diego Convention Center in Hall B.

Model ResultsIn the model, the proportion of healed ulcers was 76% in the Dermagraft plus conventional care arm versus 50% in conventional care alone. Median time to heal was 19-20 weeks for patients receiving Dermagraft compared to 51-52 weeks for those receiving conventional care alone. Additionally, patients receiving Dermagraft had fewer infections and amputations.

The average expected cost to Medicare per treated patient over 52 weeks was $23,080 for patients receiving Dermagraft compared to $28,505 for those receiving conventional care alone. The average estimated cost per healed ulcer (i.e. costs associated with the treatment of the ulcers that completely healed) was $30,344 in the Dermagraft plus conventional care arm compared to $56,516 for conventional care alone. Cost neutrality for Dermagraft was achieved at 6 months for Medicare payers and 8 months for private insurers. When using commercial reimbursement rates, Dermagraft provided similar but smaller cost effective ratios. Cost results are given in 2009 U.S. dollars.

About the ModelA Markov model was created that incorporated both clinical data from a pivotal, randomized, controlled study and U.S. cost and resource data from Medicare and private insurers claims databases to provide a cost analysis from the payer's perspective. Weekly health state transition probabilities were derived retrospectively from results of a 12-week, randomized control trial (n=245) that compared the efficacy of Dermagraft plus conventional care in the treatment of DFUs to conventional care alone. Health states were verified by medical review and included healed, unhealed not infected, cellulitis, osteomyelitis and amputations. During weeks 1-8, Dermagraft could be used on a weekly basis for patients in the treatment group providing the ulcers were in an unhealed but not infected state.  Amputee status was based on post-trial period patient follow-
