Scholarcy highlights

  • Health utility values were estimated by using time trade-off based on a period of 10 years, TTO based on life expectancy, and EuroQol 5-Dimension including a visual analog scale
  • The mean health utility values for response and no response using TTO based on 10 years were 0.847 and 0.380, respectively
  • The estimated health utility values of response and no response were 0.865 and 0.476 using TTO based on life expectancy, and 0.814 and 0.279 using EQ-5D
  • This study showed that the utility weights of people with no response to atopic dermatitis treatment were lower compared with response from the general population
  • Health care providers should consider symptom control as an important factor affecting the quality of life of those with atopic dermatitis
