New drug for GCA?
Just a month ago (18 December) we posted about the decision of NICE not to approve Tocilizumab (actemra) for GCA. The next stage will be on Tuesday, when NICE will consider the submissions from consultation. We are thrilled that no fewer than 20 patients took the trouble to register on the NICE website to post their comments. It's so moving to read them. All of these will be considered on Tuesday. We hope it will really make a difference! Thank you all so much for your support. Especially as Christmas and New Year fell smack in the middle of the four weeks' consultation period! We'll post again as soon as we know the result. We will be in Manchester to represent PMRGCAuk on Tuesday, and maybe there will be some other GCA patients there too. Please keep your fingers crossed!
