In June 2018, ICER announced its intention to assess the comparative clinical effectiveness and value of canakinumab (Novartis) for cardiovascular risk reduction in people with atherosclerosis. However, in October 2018, when the Food and Drug Administration declined to approve canakinumab’s expanded indication for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, ICER announced it would no longer proceed with its value assessment.
