BOSTON, January 25, 2022 – The Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) today released a Draft Evidence Report assessing the comparative clinical effectiveness and value of plinabulin (BeyondSpring Pharmaceuticals) and trilaciclib (Cosela™, G1 Therapeutics) for the prevention of chemotherapy-induced neutropenia and other myelosuppressive effects.

This is a preliminary draft of ICER’s assessment of these treatments, and the findings within this document should not be interpreted to be ICER’s final conclusions.

On February 1, 2022, as part of ICER’s Early Insights Webinar Series, Dan Ollendorf, Director of Value Measurement & Global Health Initiatives at Tufts CEVR, will present the initial findings of this draft report. This webinar is exclusively available to all users of the ICER Analytics platform; registration for the webinar is now open.
