Podotimod in pediatric recurrent respiratory tract infections: a cost-utility analysis


Introduction: Despite the growing evidence on efficacy, few economic evaluations have evaluated the cost-utility of Pidotimod (PDT) supplementation to decrease the probability of recurrent respiratory tract infections in children. This study aimed to determine the cost-utility of PDT to reduce the incidence rate of recurrent respiratory tract infections in children.

Methods: A decision tree model was used to estimate the cost and quality-adjusted life-years (QALYs) of PDT in a patient aged 1-6 with a history of recurrent respiratory tract infections. Multiple sensitivity analyses were conducted to evaluate the robustness of the model. Cost-effectiveness was evaluated at a willingness-to-pay (WTP) value of US$5180.
