: Introduction: Primary immune thrombocytopenia is a rare autoimmune disease characterised by a decreased platelet count resulting in an increased risk of bleeding events and even life-threatening haemorrhages. Thrombopoietin receptor agonists (TPO-RAs) are the standard of care second-line therapy for adult patients with chronic immune thrombocytopenia. The first TPO-RAs approved and reimbursed in Italy, eltrombopag and romiplostim, while effective, pose some issues in terms of safety (e.g., hepatotoxicity) or general management (e.g., dietary restrictions). Avatrombopag, an effective and well-tolerated TPO-RA, was recently granted reimbursement. Methods: A 3-year (2023-2025) budget impact analysis (BIA) was conducted to estimate its impact on the Italian National Health Service (NHS). Two scenarios were compared, of which one represents the current situation, without avatrombopag, and the other provides for an increasing market share of avatrombopag (up to 26.6%). Results: BIA shows that the increase in the use of avatrombopag correlates with savings for NHS: in the first year, saving would be €1,300,564, increasing to €2,774,210 in the third year, for a total of €6,083,231 over the 3-year period. The sensitivity analysis confirmed these savings in the scenario with avatrombopag. Conclusions: Based on this BIA, the introduction and reimbursement of avatrombopag is an efficient and advantageous choice for the Italian NHS.

Abstract

: Introduction: Primary immune thrombocytopenia is a rare autoimmune disease characterised by a decreased platelet count resulting in an increased risk of bleeding events and even life-threatening haemorrhages. Thrombopoietin receptor agonists (TPO-RAs) are the standard of care second-line therapy for adult patients with chronic immune thrombocytopenia. The first TPO-RAs approved and reimbursed in Italy, eltrombopag and romiplostim, while effective, pose some issues in terms of safety (e.g., hepatotoxicity) or general management (e.g., dietary restrictions). Avatrombopag, an effective and well-tolerated TPO-RA, was recently granted reimbursement. Methods: A 3-year (2023-2025) budget impact analysis (BIA) was conducted to estimate its impact on the Italian National Health Service (NHS). Two scenarios were compared, of which one represents the current situation, without avatrombopag, and the other provides for an increasing market share of avatrombopag (up to 26.6%). Results: BIA shows that the increase in the use of avatrombopag correlates with savings for NHS: in the first year, saving would be €1,300,564, increasing to €2,774,210 in the third year, for a total of €6,083,231 over the 3-year period. The sensitivity analysis confirmed these savings in the scenario with avatrombopag. Conclusions: Based on this BIA, the introduction and reimbursement of avatrombopag is an efficient and advantageous choice for the Italian NHS.
