Key events during the development of the guidance:

Date Update
09 April 2024 In February 2024, we informed you that the company, Incyte Corporation, was going to provide additional evidence in response to the draft guidance consultation. To allow time for the additional evidence to be submitted by the company and to be critiqued by the External Academic Group, we postponed the second committee meeting discussion. I can confirm that the second committee meeting discussion has now been scheduled for 6 June 2024. Details to register to observe the second committee meeting in June will be available on the NICE Meetings in public webpage from mid May 2024.
31 January 2024 - 21 February 2024 Draft guidance
07 February 2024 We issued draft guidance for consultation on 24 January 2024 and the company, Incyte Corporation, has asked to provide additional evidence to address the committee’s requests as part of their response to the consultation. To allow time for the additional evidence to be submitted by the company and to be critiqued by the External Academic Group, this will no longer be discussed at the committee meeting on 6 March 2024. The second committee meeting discussion will be rearranged, and we will update all stakeholders with the new date in due course.

17 June 2022 Please note that the timelines for this appraisal have been revised and the appraisal is now anticipated to begin in mid-April 2023. 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.
