At the ASCO Annual Meeting in Chicago, PHE Senior Director, Policy & Economics Julia Thornton-Snider, PhD presented a recently-completed study on the impact of treatment delays for patients with pediatric leukemia.

In the study, Dr. Snider and colleagues quantified the social value of tisagenlecleucel (Kymriah) and the value lost from treatment delays, establishing that delays significantly decreased value derived from treatment with tisagenlecleucel among pediatric patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
