Abstract

Background: STN1013001 is an innovative latanoprost cationic emulsion for open-angle glaucoma/ocular hypertension (OAG/OHT) and ocular surface disease (OSD). Methods and findings: A 5-year, 7 health states, 1-year cycle early Markov model-supported cost-utility analysis (CUA) of STN1013001 vs. other latanoprost formulations (Latanoprost) followed the Italian National Health Service (INHS) perspective.One-way, probabilistic and scenario sensitivity analyses tested the uncertainty of the baseline results. Value of information analysis (VOIA) investigated the potential cost-effectiveness of collecting further evidence. Results: Over 5 years, the Markov model-supported CUA predicts STN1013001 to be potentially highly cost-effective vs. Latanoprost (+€57.60 cost at €2020 values; +0.089 Quality-Adjusted Life Years).The Incremental Cost-Utility Ratio (€647.65) falls well below the lower limit of the acceptability range proposed for Italy (€25,000-€40,000).Sensitivity analyses confirmed the robustness of the baseline findings. VOIA highlighted that further information might only be cost-effective for OAG/OHT utilities and OSD-related disutility. Conclusion: STN1013001 is potentially highly cost-effective and strongly dominant vs. Latanoprost for OAG/OHT+OSD patients from the INHS perspective. These findings should be re-assessed using the data from the ongoing Phase III trial (NCT04133311) comparing the efficacy and safety of STN1013001 vs. Latanoprost and with future real-world CUAs upon the availability of STN1013001 on the Italian market.
