There are many cancer drugs and cancer drug combinations. They have individual side effects. The list includes chemotherapy, hormone therapies, targeted cancer drugs and bisphosphonates. The drugs are listed in alphabetical order by pharmacy (generic) name and brand name.

Cancer drugs will be given one of three recommendations:

  1. Yes. Recommended for use on the NHS
  2. No. Not recommended for use on the NHS
  3. Conditional approval. The drug has the potential to meet NICE cost-effectiveness criteria but more evidence is needed to recommend for use on the NHS
