ABSTRACT
The article cites a research study conducted to determine whether aspirin is cost-effective for primary prevention of cardiovascular (CV) events in women. The study used cost-utility analysis using a Markov model from the perspective of a third-party payer and a lifetime time horizon. It was found in the base-case analysis, aspirin use in women at moderate risk for CV events led to a cost-utility ratio of $13 300 per quality-adjusted life-year gained.
