Published: September 10, 2018 Content info: 162 Pages

Although, 5EU markets have implemented patient access schemed to ensure early access to innovative oncology medicines with high unmet need, the increasing requirements for improved clinical benefits and better cost-effectiveness of medicines has resulted in more stringent pricing and reimbursement of medicines leading to access issues such as delays in patient access due to negotiations.
