Background Huntington’s disease (HD) is a devastating and fatal neurodegenerative disorder that leads to progressive disability, and over time to total dependence. The economic impact of HD on patients living in developing countries like Peru is still unknown. This study aims to estimate the economic burden by estimating direct and indirect costs of Huntington’s disease in Peru, as well as the proportion of direct costs borne by patients and their families.

Abstract Abstract In recent years, In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF), Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) and genetic engineering (GE) have developed substantially, raising hopes but also concerns. Relying on a panel of experts, this article explores expected scenarios related to the evolution of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART), thus helping to ascertain which expectations might materialize over the next twenty years. We use the Delphi method, whereby forecasts are extracted from a surv...

The objective of this article was to estimate the medical costs derived from malignant ARD treatment in the Spanish National Health System (NHS) between 2004 and 2011. Estimation of direct healthcare costs was based on national primary data on the cost of specialized care for inpatients and outpatients treated at NHS hospitals and on national and regional secondary data on costs of primary healthcare and pharmaceutical prescriptions. A prevalence approach was used to estimate the overall burden ...
