The sum total of all probabilities and costs then forms the CEA formula. Results in this hypothetical example are that the cost effectiveness of preventive therapy is $12,800/YLS in high-risk patients and at a much less favorable $216,900/YLS in low-risk patients. This 17-fold more favorable cost effectiveness in the high-risk group results from the higher mortality rates (with an attendant greater gain in effectiveness).

Overall, a wide range of views exist on the use of CEA, and on the critical obstacles to its wider use. S.
