Costs per cycle: All-cause and neutropenia-related. Healthcare resource costs, for cycles in which pegfilgrastim and filgrastim were used prophylactically, were calculated on a per-cycle basis to provide total costs as well as subgroup costs by setting of care: ambulatory care, emergency room, and hospitalizations. The costs were direct costs for services covered under patients’ insurance benefits and represented the reimbursed amount paid by the patient and insurer.
