After discussion with Paion AG, NICE is unable to make a recommendation on angiotensin II for treating vasosuppressor-resistant hypotension caused by septic or distributive shock. The company did not make an evidence submission because of uncertainty about the number of people who would be eligible for treatment. We will review this decision if the company decides to make a submission.
