As you will be aware, the Department of Health has asked the Institute to conduct an appraisal of pazopanib for the maintenance treatment of epithelial ovarian, fallopian and peritoneal cancer in patients whose disease has not progressed after first line therapy .
The Institute has now been informed by the manufacturer that it will no longer be pursuing a licensing application for pazopanib in this indication, therefore, NICE has decided to suspend this appraisal on its current work programme.
As this topic has been referred to the Institute we will continue to monitor any development and will update interested parties if the situation changes.
