ISPOR Glasgow 2017: PH Associates submit a bumper crop of real world evidence abstracts

Written by Anna Bishop Bailey on Wednesday 12th July 2017

The recent submission deadline for ISPOR 20th European Congress 2017 saw a flurry of (organised) activity at pH Associates (an OPEN Health company), as they submitted a total of eight abstracts for presentation. Six of the abstracts showcased results from different Real World Evidence (RWE) studies, while the remaining two were methodology/review-focused. The submissions are as follows: 

  • A description of the real world rate of haematological toxicity and associated resource use, in patients treated for non-small cell lung cancer.
  • A prospective evaluation of treatment satisfaction in patients with multiple sclerosis.
  • The resource use and associated costs of switching rheumatology patients from originator to biosimilar biologic therapies.
  • Patient reported outcomes of work productivity in early and metastatic breast cancer.
  • A description of the real world effectiveness and associated resource use of a biologic therapy in ankylosing spondylitis.
  • The burden of cytomegalovirus disease in immunosuppressed patients following haematopoietic cell transplantation.
  • Development and use of a conceptual model of inflammatory bowel disease to facilitate patient reported outcome instrument selection.
  • A systematic review of the use of real world data in recent NICE discussion-making.

All together, these submissions to ISPOR Glasgow 2017 highlight the breadth and depth of pH’s expertise in the Real World Evidence space; both pH Assocaiates and OPEN Health will be keeping our fingers crossed for 8/8 acceptances!
