The higher number appraised by SMC reflects SMC's practice of appraising all newly licensed drugs, the differences are often less than these figures suggest because NICE sometimes approves a drug for very restricted use. Our results show the difference to be closer to 17 months based on 88 comparable medications; however, fitness states and blood glucose levels, respectively)?
Dear et al also compared time differences between SMC and NICE in 2007.
