Procedural review: CADTH accepted a procedural review request, submitted by the Canadian Gastrointestinal Oncology Evidence Network (CGOEN), for the PC0252 Pemazyre pERC Final Recommendation.

Status: Concluded.

Description: The procedural review request alleged that Pemazyre had not been considered under the deliberative framework for significant unmet need, as described in the CADTH Procedures for Reimbursement Reviews (the “Procedures”). This matter was concluded following a case conference meeting between CADTH and CGOEN. Mutual agreement was reached that no deviation from the Procedures had occurred for the reimbursement review of Pemazyre. 

Outcome:  The pERC Final Recommendation of Do Not Reimburse is upheld for Pemazyre.
