The UK’s National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) is recommending the use of atezolizumab (Tecentriq) for treatment-naïve patients with locally advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma who are not eligible for cisplatin-based therapy.

Once those data are available, atezolizumab will enter the process for exiting the CDF and a review of the NICE guidance will start. Oncotherapy drugs are only available through the CDF for a limited period.
