TA82 Atopic dermatitis (eczema) - pimecrolimus and tacrolimus: review decision - July 2015

TA82; Tacrolimus and pimecrolimus for atopic eczema was added to the static list in June 2009.

Guidance is moved to the static list following consultation with consultees and commentators when it is clear that there is no new research available that would have any material effect on the current guidance. Topics on the static list may be transferred back to the active list for further appraisal if new evidence becomes available that is likely to have a material effect on the existing recommendations.

As the appraisal has been on the static list for more than 5 years, NICE has been gathering intelligence to ascertain whether there is any new evidence available relevant to this appraisal and whether this should be considered through the full review proposal process.

Since TA82 was last considered for review, no new evidence has come to light that would lead to a change in the existing recommendations.  As a result, we are contacting stakeholders who were involved in the last review proposal for this appraisal to inform them that we have decided that TA82 should remain on the static list and no further action is required at this time.

However, if NICE is notified of a significant change to the evidence base at any stage in the future, this could trigger a formal review proposal.
