Asthma (children under 5) - inhaler devices: Static List Review Decision - March 2014
NICE Technology Appraisal Guidance No.10; Inhaler systems (devices) in children under the age of 5 years with chronic asthma, and No.38; Inhaler devices for routine treatment of chronic asthma in older children (5-15 years)
Static List Review
TA10; Inhaler systems (devices) in children under the age of 5 years with chronic asthma and TA38; Inhaler devices for routine treatment of chronic asthma in older children (5-15 years) were both added to the static list in June 2005.
Guidance is moved to the static list following consultation with consultees and commentators when it is clear that there is no new research available that would have any material effect on the current guidance. Topics on the static list may be transferred back to the active list for further appraisal if new evidence becomes available that is likely to have a material effect on the last guidance issued.
As the appraisal has been on the static list for more than 5 years, NICE has been gathering intelligence to ascertain whether there is any new evidence available relevant to this appraisal and whether this should be considered through the full review proposal process.
Consequently, following this exercise, we have decided that this appraisal should remain on the static list and no further action is required at this time.
However, if NICE is notified of a significant change to the evidence base at any stage in the future, this could trigger a formal review proposal.
