Advice

Following a full submission

icatibant (Firazyr®) is not recommended for use within NHS Scotland for the symptomatic treatment of acute attacks of hereditary angioedema in adults (with C1-esterase-inhibitor deficiency).

Icatibant treatment resulted in symptom relief in patients suffering acute abdominal, cutaneous and/or laryngeal attacks of hereditary angioedema. However, the manufacturer did not present a sufficiently robust economic analysis to gain acceptance by SMC.
