Date Update
19 April 2017 Suspended, The Department of Health has asked NICE to conduct a Single Technology Appraisal of vosaroxin within its marketing authorisation for treating relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukaemia.

As this appraisal has been referred we will continue to monitor any development and will update interested parties when the situation changes.
14 February 2017 Invitation to participate
