NICE consults on Benlysta



National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE)The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has opened its public consultation on the use of belimumab (Benlysta) for treating systemic lupus erythematosus. In the draft guidance, NICE is provisionally unable to recommend belimumab for treating adult patients with active autoantibody-positive systemic lupus erythematosus, where patients have a high degree of disease activity despite the individual receiving standard therapy, in line with the drug’s marketing authorisation.

You can register your comments directly on the NICE website until the 21st October 2011.
