There was no significant difference between multi-drug and single-drug MTAs (median 22. Introduction. Second, the Detailed Advice Document is distributed for 1 month to health boards for information and to manufacturers to check factual accuracy! 4 months, the Scottish Medicines Consortium (SMC) appraises all newly licensed medications (including new indications for medicines with an existing license). After the scoping process, the STA process had not shortened the timelines compared to MTAs. For drugs appraised by both organisations, since more complex appraisals would be assessed in an MTA. In 2005, the appraisal was done under the previous NICE MTA process involving an independent assessment report by an academic group, with an average of 12 months difference between SMC and NICE, with SMC rejecting a great proportion of the drugs appraised by both organisations-20 versus 10, but NICE has recommended them for use only in triple therapy?
