08 July 2021 Invitation to participate
26 March 2021 The Department for Health and Social Care has asked NICE to conduct an appraisal of ripretinib within its marketing authorisation for treating advanced gastrointestinal stromal tumours after 3 therapies. Please note that the timelines for this appraisal have been revised and the appraisal is now anticipated to begin in early-July 2021. These timings are based on a request from the company to reschedule the initial date set by NICE, in order to facilitate a suitably comprehensive and robust submission.
