6 Advocating the value of IVDs European Diagnostic Manufacturers Association

7 7 Geneva, January 2008 The essential role of IVDs DISEASE Diagnosis Therapy Prevention Screening targeted populations »Correct and early diagnosis is the key to effective & sustainable healthcare in the medium-long term.  IVDs represent less than 2% of the Total Health Expenditure, which is less than €20 per capita and per annum (EDMA 2005 European Market Estimates) and its information influences about 64% of the medical decisions (JD. Kruse-Jarrest, Lab. Med. 18:213/1994)    EDMA is campaigning to present laboratory testing as a valuable asset that is a cost-effective component of health maintenance and disease management. Early & Correct Diagnosis is key to effective therapy IVDs provide objective information in evaluating the effects of treatment

8 8 Geneva, January 2008 Example: Tuberculosis Clinical Benefit  New IVD tests offer, for the first time, the opportunity to stop TB infection before it progresses to disease.  IVDs allows an earlier detection of the pathogen agent, an earlier start of an adapted treatment, and in most of the cases an earlier recovery. Economic Benefit  Direct economic impact of tuberculosis in the EU is estimated to be more than €1 billion.  Treatment of MDR-TB requires up to 2 years of chemotherapy, which is more than 100 times more expensive than treatment of drug- susceptible TB Patient Benefit  Faster diagnosis means patients can be better managed at an earlier stage, resulting in Europe has the highest rate of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) in the world, with nearly 70,000 cases per year. Virtually untreatable strains are emerging in Eastern Europe.  better control of the spread of TB,  avoidance of unnecessary suffering of patients, and their families/carers  more efficient utilisation of hospital resources Draft messages: Work in progress
