Almirall, S.A. announced that NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) has provisionally recommended approval of Ilumetri (tildrakizumab) (Ilumya in the US), a humanized, high-affinity IL-23p19 monoclonal antibody, for the treatment of adult patients with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis who are candidates for systemic therapy.

Following a single health technology assessment submission to NICE in August 2018 and the subsequent questions for clarification and appraisal committee meetings, NICE completed their assessment of tildrakizumab and has now issued a Final Appraisal Determination (FAD) provisionally recommending tildrakizumab as a cost effective treatment option for the NHS for the patients specified in the FAD. Final NICE approval is expected in April 2019.
