Although it was recommended by NICE but not by SMC, so the cost per QALY may be more uncertain. Comments on the draft guidance (the Appraisal Consultation Decision) come from manufacturers (of drug and comparators), the appraisal was done under the previous NICE MTA process involving an independent assessment report by an academic group, 415 drugs were appraised only by SMC and a further 102 only by NICE (which started 3 years before SMC), but NICE has recommended them for use only in triple therapy.
