Vitamin A supplementation for the prevention of chronic lung disease in premature infants: A cost-utility analysis


Introduction: Despite the growing evidence on efficacy, little is known regarding the efficiency of Vitamin A supplementation to decrease the probability of chronic lung disease (CLD) in preterm infants. This study aims to determine the cost-utility of Vitamin A to prevent CLD in preterm infants in Colombia.

Methods: A decision tree model was used to estimate the cost and quality-adjusted life-years (QALYs) of Vitamin A supplementation in preterm infants. Multiple sensitivity analyses were conducted to evaluate the robustness of the model. Cost-effectiveness was evaluated at a willingness-to-pay value of US$5180.
