27 April 0202 The Department for Health and Social Care has asked NICE to carry out a Single Technology Appraisal of daratumumab in combination for untreated multiple myeloma when stem cell transplant is suitable. Following on from information received from the company this appraisal has now been scheduled into the work programme.
