MA03.06 - Cost Effectiveness of Chest Scan Screeing for Lung Cancer in Abestos Occupational Exposure Subjects: A Model Based Study (ID 5037)
14:20 - 15:50 | Author(s): A. Luc
The National Lung Screening trial (NLST) showed that screening with low-dose computed tomography (CT) compared with chest radiography reduced lung-cancer mortality. There is very few data's on subjects with occupational abestos exposure. We examined the cost-effectiveness of CT lung cancer screening in a french cohort of abestos post professional exposure subjets (APEXS cohort).
We estimated mean lif-years, costs and incremental cost-effectiveness ration (ICER) for screening with low-dose CT compare to no screening in this population of abestose exposed subjects. Estimations of life-years gained were based on the efficacy of NLST trial aplpied to APEXS cohort, adjusted to sex and age. Costs were limited to directs costs, from the payer perspective. We also performed sensitiviy analysis based on several assumptions of screening program efficacy.
Compared with no screening, screening with low-dose CT, over a period of 2 years, will cost, for 1000 subjects of APEXS cohort 312 645 €, will provide 9.4 additional life-years. The corresponding ICER was 33 102 € per life-gained. Sensitiviyt analysis showed that this result is sensitive to screening program efficacy (number, stage, and survival diagnosed by the program).
ICER of low-dose CT lung cancer program in a cohort of abestos post occupational exposure population appears as acceptable from the French health system.
