Activity Description

The first gene therapies for hemophilia A and B are expected to reach the market by 2022, with more projected in the coming years. Proactive development and implementation of risk assessment and mitigation strategies can assist in identifying the appropriate patient populations for gene therapy. But what are the long-term economic and clinical impacts of these therapies in managed care?

This session will discuss key factors managed care pharmacists should consider as therapeutic options for hemophilia diversify. It will outline the advantages and challenges of this therapeutic mechanism within the real-world hemophilia patient population, compare products in the development pipeline, examine cost management strategies, and discuss perspectives on value.
