For the first time, the AMNOG seriously tackles the price monopoly of 1 January onwards for eligible new pharmaceuticals launched on. Since its introduction on January 1, , AMNOG has hampered the market access of some products in Germany such as Trajenta (anti-diabetic) and Retigabin. AMNOG is here to stay. However, all this changed at the beginning of AMNOG, meanwhile, sought to achieve a longer-term reduction of drug prices.

This takes the form of a rebate on the retail price originally set by the company. The expectation of two large outcome trials is especially unrealistic for a new indication on mortality or severe morbidity for an approved drug. This could ambog to a lower power to detect a hazard ratio that is less than one at a fixed significance level.

IQWiG’s rationale is described briefly as below. Federal Ministry of Health The public is able to read here about all active ingredients for which the Federal Joint Committee is carrying qmnog or has already completed an early additional benefit evaluation.

Recently, there has been a change to the rules in that Criterion 5 is used only for price negotiations, and not for determining the comparator.

The refund rate that was negotiated applies to persons with both statutory qmnog private insurance, and to self-paying patients in Germany. Recherche en Soins Infirmiers25— This resolution of the Federal Manog Committee is published.

Until the AMNOG procedure has been completed, the price set by the pharmaceutical company itself applies to the new pharmaceutical for one year. If it is not possible for an additional benefit to be proven as a therapeutic improvement for active ingredients which are eligible for the fixed rate, the active ingredients are directly assigned to the existing fixed-rate group. Table 2 describes the basis for the classification.

After a clinical benefit has been ascertained, the price is then determined through a complex negotiation process between the manufacturer and the decision makers. It is however also possible to compare with non-treatment.

Within this period, firstly, the Federal Joint Committee adopts a resolution on the additional benefit of a new medicinal product, having carried out its evaluation. Therefore, reducing the number of events in the groups by removing a component from the composite endpoint leads to a larger variance for the log hazard ratio estimate and a wider confidence interval for the log hazard ratio.

As in all IQWiG reports, the patient perspective also plays a key role in among benefit assessments. Since it is the standard with which a new medicinal product is compared as to its additional benefit, it is of central importance.

We understand that the magnitude of an observed treatment effect is also important to regulators when judging whether an observed benefit is clinically meaningful or not. Please review our privacy policy. The Federal Joint Committee defines the expedient comparative therapy according to transparent procedural criteria. For this, the pharmaceutical company provides the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Funds with the individual prices of all medicinal product packages, not including value-added tax, which are received by the pharmaceutical company if the discounts which it voluntarily grants or which it has to grant are taken into account.

The methods, based on the work of Buyse and Piedbois, Lassereand Buyse et al. Germany is typically prioritized by the pharmaceutical industry: The pharmaceutical company can apply to the Federal Joint Committee for a renewed benefit evaluation if new scientific findings are available. It describes clearly the standards for proof of additional benefit, for determining the appropriate comparator, and for the dossier submitted by the pharmaceutical company.


Here, the benefit in comparison to other medicinal products of a fixed-rate group takes on a major role in proving a therapeutic improvement.

We hope that IQWiG would consider taking advantage of the output from the above efforts in determining the net benefit. In this context the Institute must not only determine the probability, but also the extent of added benefit.

IQWiG determined an added benefit of ruxolitinib, as it alleviates symptoms better than the appropriate comparator therapy and offers survival benefits.

New response evaluation criteria in solid tumours: For one thing, removing a component in a composite endpoint could reduce the power of the study. We understand products to be innovative which tangibly improve patient care.

Ipilimumab’s benefit on mortality was originally considered to be major. In four sections, it defines in detail the steps of the benefit assessment. Lower amnig on medicinal products with no additional benefit means that the probability of additional contributions and contribution increases falls.

The assessment procedure is only complete with a formal decision by the G-BA on the added benefit and on the extent of added benefit.
