Description

This is a list of all the unique values from the Drug Name variable in the High Cost Drugs Dataset that relate to the prescribing of benralizumab.

Methodology

  • benralizumab
  • fasenra

All drug name values that contain at least one of the above strings are included in the benralizumab group and assigned the VTM (virtual therapeutic moiety) code 35299711000001100.
