Authors' objectives:

To summarise the available evidence relating to the cost-effectiveness of pulmozyme in the treatment of cystic fibrosis (CF).

Authors' recomendations: This study found that the most important factors affecting costs are the per diem rates and the number of hospitalisations. Considering the savings accrued from decreased hospitalisation, DNase is still a more costly alternative than no DNase.
