Date Update
23 May 2019 Committee meeting: 2
12 April 2019 - 09 May 2019 Appraisal consultation
20 March 2019 Committee meeting: 1
09 May 2018 The company who produces osimertinib, AstraZeneca, has requested more time to compile the evidence submission for this technology and as a consequence, this appraisal has been rescheduled. This delay means that this appraisal 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 CDF funding from the date of marketing authorization.
