    • Treatment characteristics;
  • Health care resources utilization and costs;
  • Treatment patterns;
    • Pre-launch;
    • Post-launch;

    • Demographic and clinical characteristics of patients with a given disease;
    • Use and cost of health resources compared to a control group;
  • Projections of the economic burden of illness for the overall Canadian population.
