The decision by health technology assessment body NICE on Novartis’s advanced breast cancer drug, Kisqali, contrasts sharply with its recommendation for another CDK4/6 inhibitor – Lilly’s Verzenios.
The sponsors of seven new drugs are set to find out this week whether the European Medicines Agency’s human medicines committee, the CHMP, will recommend pan-EU approval for their products. CHMP action is also expected regarding two potential combination therapies for COVID-19.
