Cost-Effectiveness Comparison of Belantamab Mafodotin and Selinexor in Relapsed Refractory Multiple Myeloma
Dr. Ankit Kansagra Discusses the Cost-Effectiveness of Belantamab Mafodotin and Selinexor
What is the background of this study?
Highly effective drugs have significantly affected the outcomes of multiple myeloma, with a five-year survival improving from 34.6 % in 1998 to 53.9% in 2016. Since 2009 alone, more than a dozen new treatments have been approved by FDA continuing to improve quantity and quality of life in patients with multiple myeloma. However, these drugs come at a huge financial cost and cost effectiveness analysis is commonly used tool to study economic impact of novel treatments.

Dr. Ankit Kansagra (UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX, USA) discusses the cost effectiveness of belantamab mafodotin and selinexor in relapsed refractory multiple myeloma.
Outcomes for patients with triple-class exposed myeloma is poor with limited therapeutic options and carry a significant cost burden. With scientific advances, we are at verge of paradigm shift with anticipated regulatory approval of therapeutic options agents like novel alkylating agents, newer immunomodulatory drugs, CAR T-cell and bispecific antibodies. Our study is the first to provide critically required economical perspective in choosing appropriate agents in triple-class exposed multiple myeloma.
