#S0606: Precision Medicine into Action: The Case of a Histology Independent Label - What Implications for Value Assessment?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Component Type: Session

A histology-independent label (encompassing all tumours with a common biomarker, regardless of tumour type) will cover an extremely heterogeneous population with varied comparators and prognoses, and likely be based on evidence from non comparative basket trials, with little or no data on survival outcomes. Representatives from health technology assessment (HTA) bodies, industry and patient organisations will discuss the challenges this poses for the value assessment of these drugs, and explore possible solutions to facilitate timely access to potentially innovative treatments for patients with no alternative options.
