Quotes

"To approve anastrazole for other health conditions such as chemoprevention in 'at risk' women, the MHRA would need to receive a medicines licence application or a licence variation request from the current holder of the medicines licence. The MHRA would then assess its safety, efficacy and quality as part of the normal medicines licensing approval process, including results from clinical trials."
When asked specifically about anastrozole, which is currently licensed for breast cancer treatment but not prevention, Prof Howell added: "Nice and MHRA are not blocking it, they are just not thinking."
