Humira and Ozurdex finally approved for treating non-infectious uveitis in England and Wales

Finally after months of consultations, NICE has published its guidance and recommendations for adalimumab (Humira) and dexamethasone implants (Ozurdex).

The general information for the public can be found:  https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ta460/informationforpublic:

We suggest you may also wish to read Recommendations and then, if you want to know more, turn to the Summary from page 19 onwards and finish by reading the ‘Implementation’, section 5 on page 27.

Please also be aware that the process of obtaining Humira (adalimumab) injection and Ozurdex (dexamethasone intravitreal implant) treatment won’t suddenly speed up in England and Wales because the NICE guidance has been published. However, having NICE guidance should make it much easier to obtain Humira or Ozurdex treatment if your consultant says you need it.
