A new paper sets out an insurance model as part of a global solution to incentivise R&D for new antibiotics to tackle multi-drug resistance. It offers (i) a reasonable return on R&D; (ii) risk mitigation for payers, providers and manufacturers, (iii) stewardship by delinking revenues from volume of use, and (iv) conservation of antibiotic effectiveness by ensuring the continued availability of new antibiotics in the long-term.
In November 2016 Professor Dame Sally Davies delivered the 23rd OHE Annual Lecture on the topic of: Ten Years of the NIHR: Achievements and Challenges for the Next Decade. The lecture is now available as a publication, available for download.
OHE and RAND Europe were commissioned by the Oxford BRC to undertake a programme of top-down evaluations of aspects of the impact of the BRC. This research looked at the health, economic and scientific impact of Oxford BRC’s research activity.
Resistance to antibiotics is growing. Additional R&D is required. Both Transferable Intellectual Property Rights and Market Entry Rewards should be explored for use in Europe as a regional “pull” incentive.
A new OHE Research Paper assesses the nature of evidence used to reach HTA decisions which NICE have classified as “Recommended in Line with Clinical Practice” between 2007 and mid-2016. The level of patient access associated with these decisions has also been assessed.
