Pharmacoeconomical analysis of multiple sclerosis in the Czech Republic
Grishko, Anna ; Sobíšek, Lukáš (advisor) ; Zouhar, Jan (referee)
Pharmacoeconomics is an interdisciplinary scientific field that serves to guide optimal health care resource allocation. Pharmacoeconomics evaluates costs and effects of pharmaceutical products. Conclusions from pharmacoeconomical studies are used as a basis in the process of registering new medicines, pricing and reimbursement of new and already registered medicines. In addition, such studies are also important for health insurers, patient organizations and doctors. Besides evaluating financial costs, pharmacoeconomical studies evaluate non-financial outcomes, for example, effects on the patient's quality of life. The aim of this bachelor thesis is to applicate Continuous-Time Markov Model on clinical data of patients with multiple sclerosis in Czech Republic. In this thesis, disease progression models for two distinct groups of patients are compared. The disability progression in multiple sclerosis affects the costs of illness and increases the overall economic burden of disease. One of the goals of this study is to find out whether early treatment with disease modifying drugs is able to delay progression to functional disability. Furthermore, the research of papers and literature on multiple sclerosis and pharmacoeconomics was carried out.
