Etelcalcetide for Treating Secondary Hyperparathyroidism (TA448)

Technology Appraisal Guidance No. 448

Source: National Institute for Health and Care Excellence

1. Guidance

1.1 Etelcalcetide is recommended as an option for treating secondary hyperparathyroidism in adults with chronic kidney disease on haemodialysis, only if:

  • treatment with a calcimimetic is indicated but cinacalcet is not suitable and
  • the company provides etelcalcetide with the discount agreed in the patient access scheme.

1.2 This guidance is not intended to affect the position of patients whose treatment with etelcalcetide was started within the NHS before this guidance was published. Treatment of those patients may continue without change to whatever funding arrangements were in place for them before this guidance was published until they and their NHS clinician consider it appropriate to stop.

This guidance represents the view of the Institute which was arrived at after careful consideration of the available evidence. Health professionals are expected to fully take it into account when exercising their clinical judgement. This guidance does not, however, override the individual responsibility of health professionals to make appropriate decisions in the circumstances of the individual patient, in consultation with the patient and/or guardian or carer.
