All cost-effectiveness studies assessing metfor...
Injury and musculoskeletal disorders are a major cause of death, disability, and decreased quality of life in developing countries. Thus, understanding the cost-effectiveness of orthopedic care in low- and middle-income countries may help to guide future outreach. A systematic review was conducted on the literature available on the cost-effectiveness of surgical trips that provided orthopedic-related care and extracted data regarding the cost-effectiveness of the orthopedic-related interventions. The cost-e...
This systematic review protocol aims to examine the evidence of effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of interventions for children and adolescents with, or at risk of developing mental disorders in low- and middle-income countries (LAMICs).
Measles is still common in many developing countries, and its outbreaks have been on the rise since 2009 even though the disease is almost entirely preventable through safe and effective vaccination. This paper aims to provide evidence about the systematic review of the cost-effectiveness of measles treatment in different regions worldwide.
Tuberculosis (TB), along with the human immunodeficiency virus, is one of the leading causes of death from infectious diseases. Its prevalence has rendered the treatment of drug-resistant TB a major public health problem that threatens the progress made in TB care and control worldwide. Our objectives were to conduct a systematic review of the cost-effectiveness of treatment for multidrug-resistant and extensively drug-resistant TB (MDR-TB/XDR-TB) and to synthesise available data from scientific research.
Metformin is sometimes proposed to be an "anti-aging" drug, based on preclinical experiments with lower-order organisms and numerous retrospective data on beneficial health outcomes for type 2 diabetics. Large prospective, placebo-controlled trials are planned, in pilot stage or running, to find a new use (or indication) for an aging population. As one of the metformin trials has "frailty" as its endpoint, similar to a trial with a plant-derived senolytic, the latter class of novel anti-aging drugs is brief...
Accumulating evidence suggested that the use of metformin had more benefits for both prevention and treatment of tuberculosis (TB) than non-metformin use in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM); however, it remains to be fully elucidated on this topic. Thus, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of published studies to determine the association between metformin use and TB in patients with diabetes.
The objective of this review was to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of antimicrobial therapy for patients with carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae infection.
To critically review all literature concerning the cost-effectiveness of flexible ureteroscopy comparing single-use with reusable scopes.
: Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) is the only licensed vaccine for tuberculosis, but its effectiveness is limited and varies by age. New candidate vaccines are currently being investigated. In response to the declining incidence of TB, practices relating to BCG vaccination have changed in various countries in recent years. A valid cost-effectiveness study is therefore needed in order to assist decision-makers in the implementation of cost-effective strategies for BCG vaccination. : Studies involving economi...
Metformin may have clinical benefits in dialysis patients, however its safety in this population is unknown. This systematic review evaluated the safety of metformin in dialysis patients.
Effective mental health interventions may reduce the impact that mental health problems have on young people's well-being. Nevertheless, little is known about the cost effectiveness of such interventions for children and adolescents.
There are now over a dozen disease modifying therapies (DMTs) available to treat multiple sclerosis (MS). They vary in efficacy and safety as well as in cost. The literature on the cost effectiveness of these is often confusing and contradictory. There is a lack of quality evidence enabling the comparison of different DMTs. There are scarce randomized controlled trials which look at one DMT compared with another that is not IFN or GA. There is also a lack of systematic reviews comparing the efficacy and saf...
A broad range of interventions have been implemented to improve ambient air quality, and many of these have been evaluated. Yet to date no systematic review has been conducted to identify and synthesize these studies. In this systematic review, we assess the effectiveness of interventions in reducing ambient particulate matter air pollution and improving adverse health outcomes.
Social capital is frequently indicated as a determinant of population health. Despite an increase in the frequency of public health studies including such measures, our understanding of social capital's effects on health remains unclear. In 2008, a systematic review of the "first decade" of research on social capital and health was published in the textbook Social Capital and Health. Our study intends to update and expand upon this original review to account for developments in the literature over the secon...
The aim of this literature review was to establish the economic burden of preventable disease in Australia in terms of attributable health care costs, other costs to government and reduced productivity.
Enzalutamide (Enza) is an effective treatment for metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer (mCPRC). However, Enza is not cost-effective (CE) at willingness to pay (WTP) thresholds from $0-$125 000/quality adjusted life years (QALYs) and is therefore a strain on valuable health care dollars. Metformin (Met) is inexpensive (~$8.00/month) and is thought to improve prostate cancer specific and overall survival compared to those not taking Met. We hypothesized that there must be an added effect Met could pr...
Metformin, a drug widely used in the treatment of diabetes, has proven preventive and survival benefits for various malignancies. However, the effect of metformin on gastric cancer risk and survival rate in T2DM patients remains controversial. Therefore, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the effect of metformin on gastric cancer in T2DM patients.
This study represents a systematic review of the literature to assess the effectiveness of strontium-coated titanium surfaces on osseointegration in experimental assays with healthy, nonosteoporotic and/or nonosteopenic animals.
Cost-effectiveness of exercise therapy in patients with coronary heart disease, chronic heart failure and associated risk factors: A systematic review of economic evaluations of randomized clinical trials.
Prescribed exercise is effective in adults with coronary heart disease (CHD), chronic heart failure (CHF), intermittent claudication, body mass index (BMI) ≥25 kg/m, hypertension or type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), but the evidence for its cost-effectiveness is limited, shows large variations and is partly contradictory. Using World Health Organization and American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology value for money thresholds, we report the cost-effectiveness of exercise therapy, exercise ...
The recent long-term NHS plan calls for improvements to the mental health of those attending a Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARCs). The assessment of mental health is currently the subject of a systematic review being undertaken as part of the MiMoS project. However, there is a literature that examines mental health outcomes following attendance at a SARC. We review these studies and consider the implications for SARCs in England.
Discrete choice experiments (DCEs) are a way to assess priority-setting in health care provision. This approach allows for the evaluation of individuals' preferences as a means of adding criteria to traditional quality-adjusted life year analysis. The aim of this systematic literature review was to identify attributes for designing a DCE in order to then develop and validate a framework that supports decision-making on health technologies. Our systematic literature review replicated the methods and search t...
Cost-effective preventive interventions are necessary for tackling the increasing number of hip fractures, which are frequently occuring as a serious consequence of osteoporosis. Several interventions have been available for preventing and treating osteoporosis. The aim of this study was to systematically review and critically appraise studies that assessed cost-effectiveness of hip protectors for the prevention of hip fractures and to investigate the effects of age, gender and residence situation on cost-...
Despite the widespread and increasing use of electronic health records (EHRs), the quality of EHRs is problematic. Efforts have been made to address reasons for poor EHR documentation quality. Previous systematic reviews have assessed intervention effectiveness within the outpatient setting or paper documentation. The purpose of this systematic review was to assess the effectiveness of interventions seeking to improve EHR documentation within an inpatient setting.
Metformin represents a striking example of a "historical nemesis" of a drug. About 40 years after its marketing in Europe, once demonstrated its efficacy and safety, metformin was registered also in the U.S. A few years later, it has become a mainstay in T2DM treatment, according to all international Scientific Societies guidelines. Today, despite the advent of new innovative drugs, metformin still persists as a first-choice drug in T2DM. This success is largely justified. In fact, over the years, also posi...
