SMC Update - January 2020

The Scottish Medicines Consortium (SMC) has issued its monthly advice on newly licensed medicines.

Abiraterone (Zytiga®) has been accepted for use in combination with prednisone or prednisolone for the treatment of newly diagnosed high risk metastatic hormone sensitive prostate cancer in adult men in combination with androgen deprivation therapy. This advice applies only in the context of an approved NHSScotland Patient Access Scheme (PAS) arrangement delivering the cost-effectiveness results upon which the decision was based. As such it would normally be prescribed by a specialist.

Action: Clinicians should be aware of the recommendations of the SMC. Routine use of rejected and restricted medicines should be avoided.
