Clinical Oncology News

 A U.K. study that evaluated the cost-effectiveness of risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy (RRSO), the most successful intervention to prevent ovarian cancer, has emphasized the importance of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) in premenopausal women after surgery.
 Original article (abstract): Specifying the ovarian cancer risk threshold of ‘premenopausal risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy’ for ovarian cancer prevention: a cost-effectiveness analysis J Med Genet 2016;53:9 591-599

Outcomes included in the analyses were OC, breast cancer (BC) and additional deaths from coronary heart disease. Total costs and effects were estimated in terms of quality-adjusted life-years (QALYs); incidence of OC and BC; as well as incremental cost-effectiveness ratio (ICER).
