The purpose of the Pharmacoeconomics study is to compare the two treatment regimens in terms of:1) cost-effectiveness
2) cost-utility in a subset of patients (Italy)
Assessments are part of the main study. Data regarding in-patient care, e.g. type and length of hospitalisation, is recorded for all patients included in the main study. A detailed pharmacoeconomics substudy is conducted in Italy only.
