Welcome to the homepage of LBI-HTA !

Within the project Horizon Scanning in Oncology 9 databases are frequently scanned to identify new/emerging oncologic drugs. Every 3 months, these drugs are filtered according to predefined criteria (i.e. in most instances availability of phase III study results) and are then prioritised by an expert panel to identify those therapies for which either a substantial clinical or financial impact can be expected.
We are pleased to introduce our new reports.

Against the backdrop of an increase in disability pensions due to mental health disorders, the aim of this review was a systematic analysis of the sustainability of inpatient psychiatric/ psychosomatic rehabilitation covering an observation period of at least 12 months after discharge from rehabilitation.
Overall, included studies (1 meta-analysis, 4 RCTs, 2 pre-post studies with, and 14 without a control group) showed similar trends: the improvement between admission and discharge deteriorated to varying degrees during the catamnestic period. Nevertheless, results remained better than at admission, though. In studies on specific aftercare we observed a trend towards an improved stabilization of treatment effects.
