14:55 EDTALXNAlexion informed Health Ministers will not follow AGNSS Soliris recommendation
Alexion Pharma UK, a subsidiary of Alexion Pharmaceuticals, announced it has been informed by the National Specialised Commissioning Team that the Ministers of Health have decided to not follow a positive recommendation by the Advisory Group for National Specialised Services, or AGNSS, when assessing Soliris as a treatment for patients with atypical haemolytic uraemic syndrome. The Ministers of Health have overruled this expert committee recommendation and instead referred consideration of Soliris for the treatment of patients with aHUS to the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence. Alexion said it is committed to working with the Health Ministers to make Soliris available to children and adults as quickly as possible, and calls upon the Ministers to accept the recommendation of the significant number of experts and lay people called upon to review Soliris without delay, and to reverse his decision and accept the recommendation of AGNSS in the best interests of aHUS patients in England. Alexion said, "It is important to underscore that the UK Government developed a specific process and authorised a committee, AGNSS, to evaluate treatments addressing patients with very rare disorders, and that AGNSS concluded that 'eculizumab should be routinely nationally commissioned for patients with aHUS.'"
