The Committee heard from clinical specialists that, when cytotoxic chemotherapy is indicated, most people would have docetaxel. But, when people have no or mild symptoms, and to defer chemotherapy and its adverse effects, clinicians may instead offer best supportive care including corticosteroids such as prednisolone or dexamethasone.
In draft guidance published today NICE has not recommended abiraterone for prostate cancer which has spread in people whose first treatment has failed, have no or mild symptoms and for whom chemotherapy is not yet clinically indicated1.
The clinical evidence submitted by the manufacturer came from one trial (COU AA 302).

issues with the way the manufacturer calculated estimated cost effectiveness. The health economic model was particularly complex and the committee felt that it was not transparent enough for the Evidence Review Group (ERG)2 to fully validate and critique. However, the manufacturer's current data showed that abiraterone cannot be considered value for money.
All the cost per QALYs (Quality Adjusted Life Year) estimated by both the manufacturer and the ERG fell substantially above the range normally considered cost effective that is, 20,000 to 30,000 per QALY gained. The manufacturer's base case cost per QALY was 46,700 gained and its sensitivity analysis resulted in ICERs from 45,000 to above 50,000 per QALY gained. The ERG presented an 'exploratory base case' of 57,300 per QALY gained. Additional sensitivity analyses resulted in ICERs of 57,200 to 74,800 per QALY gained.

Commenting on the draft guidance, Sir Andrew Dillon, NICE chief executive, said: "Although abiraterone is not a new drug, it is the first treatment to become available at this point in the treatment pathway. We know how Beats By Dre Rose Gold Headphones important it is for patients to have the option to delay chemotherapy and its associated side effects, so we are disappointed not to be able to recommend abiraterone for use in this way. However, the manufacturer's own economic model showed that the drug would not be cost effective at this stage because of this we cannot recommend the drug in this preliminary guidance. We hope that during this consultation, the manufacturer uses this opportunity to look again at its submission and provides the committee with additional information which may enable them to reconsider."
