Motor neurone disease - riluzole (TA20)
Fast, easy summary view of NICE guidance on 'motor neurone disease'
NICE has recommended that riluzole should be available for the treatment of individuals with MND in accordance with its licensed indications.
Treatment with riluzole should only be started by a neurological specialist who is experienced in the management of MND. Routine supervision of therapy may be managed by general practitioners, but this should be under an agreement known as a shared care arrangement with the specialist.
