03 July 2017 “This appraisal will be rescheduled because the company has let us know that with the currently available data, it is not possible to ascertain the drug’s cost-effectiveness with sufficient certainty. The company is expecting a data update in September of this year. This delay means that this topic will be removed from the NICE’s reporting targets for timeliness. In addition, through this request for delay the company accepts that this drug will not be eligible to receive interim funding from the date of marketing authorisation. ‘
