’OF LIMITED BENEFIt, WITH POTENTIAL RISKS’: ICER’s Final report on orilissa (elagolix) for endometriosis - “
THE Council voted that the evidence was not adequate to determine whether elagolix offers a net health benefit compared to no treatment. The Council also voted unanimously that the evidence was not adequate to distinguish the net health benefit of elagolix from that of treatment with either a GnRH agonist (leuprorelin acetate) or a hormonal contraceptive (depot medroxyprogesterone), due to limited and mixed evidence on clinical effectiveness and potential risks.” More at https://icer-review.org/announcements/elagolix-final-report/
