The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has issued a Final Appraisal Determination (FAD) recommending the breakthrough immunotherapy, nivolumab, for use in non-small cell lung cancer patients (NSCLC) in England.

The recommendation from NICE will make nivolumab available immediately, via the Cancer Drugs Fund (CDF). Nivolumab will be reimbursed, after chemotherapy, for all patients with locally advanced or metastatic squamous NSCLC and in non-squamous NSCLC patients whose tumours are PD-L1 positive.
