Excellent news from NICE

After what I thought to be a false start back in February (previous blog posts refer), NICE have today issued “draft” guidance on the use of Rituximab for maintenance therapy in first remission cases of follicular NHL, such as mine.

I look forward to discussing same with my haematologist at my next session on Thursday. Maybe I will be able to have my treatment during normal hours now.

I was interviewed by the BBC about this yesterday morning, so I need to have a look and see whether I have made the cut or been spiked under an Icelandic Ash Cloud… 🙂
