Necitumumab for untreated advanced or metastatic squamous non-small-cell lung cancer - NICE TAG TA411

1.1 Necitumumab, in combination with gemcitabine and cisplatin, is not recommended within its marketing authorisation for adults with locally advanced or metastatic epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-expressing squamous non-small-cell lung cancer that has not been treated with chemotherapy.

1.2 This guidance is not intended to affect the position of patients whose treatment with necitumumab was started within the NHS before this guidance was published. Treatment of those patients may continue without change to whatever funding arrangements were in place for them before this guidance was published until they and their NHS clinician consider it appropriate to stop.
