Timeline

Key events during the development of the guidance:

Date Update
03 April 2020 Topic update: this appraisal has not been defined as therapeutically critical (please follow the link titled rapid guidelines and evidence summaries within the yellow banner at the top of the page for information on recent changes to the way we work). The appraisal will therefore be paused. At this stage, we are unable to provide alternative timelines as to when the appraisal may be re-started but we will provide updates as and when this information becomes clear.
28 January 2020 - 18 February 2020 Appraisal consultation
04 February 2020 The company (Janssen) has informed NICE that they intend to submit additional information in response to the ACD. Therefore, additional time will be needed by NICE to consider this information. The appraisal committee meeting will be rescheduled into the work programme and the updated appraisal committee meeting date will be communicated in due course. Please note that the ACD consultation date remains unchanged.
