NICE rejects ustekinumab

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence has issued final guidance that does not recommend ustekinumab for psoriatic arthritis, alone or in combination with methotrexate. The independent appraisal committee concluded that ustekinumab is less effective than tumour necrosis factor alpha inhibitors and is not a cost-effective option. Patients currently receiving ustekinumab can continue receiving the medicine until they and their clinicians consider it appropriate to stop.
