The Institute for Clinical and Economic Review developed an evidence report, including a systematic review of the literature, a cost-effectiveness model, and a budget impact assessment, to support a public meeting of the New England Comparative Effectiveness Public Advisory Council (CEPAC) on October 27, 2015.1 The report evaluates the comparative clinical effectiveness and comparative value of proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) inhibitors as a class for the treatment of adults with familial hypercholesterolemia or cardiovascular disease (CVD) who require additional lowering of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels.
