Abstract: In Switzerland, every year about 5’500 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and 1’500 people with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The targeted therapy with MabThera® is the standard of care for many patients with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, whereas Herceptin® is approved for the treatment of a certain type of breast cancer. Currently both drugs are administered intravenously (IV), yet a subcutaneous application (SC) is in development. Assuming the same price for the future subcutaneous formulation, this study compared the cost and revenue situation of both application forms. The analysis was performed both in hospital outpatient- and resident oncologists-settings in Switzerland.
