Human growth hormone (somatropin) for the treatment of growth failure in children (review): review decision - July 2013

Review of NICE Technology Appraisal Guidance No. 188; Human growth hormone for the treatment growth failure in children (review of TA 42)

The Institute was proposing that the guidance should be moved to the static list of technology appraisals.

During consultation, the majority of comments received by the Institute agreed with the proposal put forward.  After consideration of all of the comments (attached as appendix A), the Institute’s Guidance Executive has decided to proceed with the proposal.  TA188 will therefore be moved to the static guidance list, however if NICE is notified of a significant change to the evidence base at any stage in the future then this could trigger further consideration and another review proposal.
