NICE approves Pazopanib for kidney cancer

24th February 2011

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence has approved a new treatment for kidney cancer.

The NHS drugs advisory body has recommended Pazopanib as a first-line treatment for those with advanced kidney cancer in certain circumstances. It has also been recommended for patients who have not previously had cytokine therapy and either remain active or only struggle with strenuous activity. Manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline has agreed a discount on the list price with a possible future rebate linked to the outcome of a clinical trial.
