NICE approves nivolumab for Hodgkin's lymphoma PharmacoEconomics & Outcomes News 784, p33 - 12 Aug 2017 NICE approves nivolumab for Hodgkin’s lymphoma NICE has approved nivolumab [Opdivo, Bristol-Myers Squibb] for treating Hodgkin’s lymphoma in patients whose cancer is progressing despite undergoing autologous stem cell transplant and treatment with brentuximab vedotin. Bristol-Myers Squibb estimates that around 30 patients a year with Hodgkin lymphoma could benefit from nivolumab in the first year, with the drug keeping them well enough to have a stem cell transplant from another person’s healthy cells and potentially curing the disease. Commenting on the decision, Director of the Centre for Health Technology Evaluation at NICE Professor Carole Longson, said "these patients with Hodgkin lymphoma often have a poor prognosis with limited options left. Nivolumab offers them a promising treatment and our committee were able to recommend the drug as a cost effective use of NHS resources". NICE.
