NICE has made an initial decision not to recommend ozanimod (Zeposia) as an NHS treatment in England and Wales.
NICE acknowledges that ozanimod reduces the number of relapses and brain lesions compared to beta interferon (Avonex), but have asked the manufacturer for more detailed evidence and analysis of the data on disability progression.
