LMEN: Capsaicin patch (Qutenza) for peripheral diabetic neuropathy

· London Medicines Evaluation Network

Capsaicin 8% cutaneous patch (Qutenza) is used to treat peripheral neuropathy (PN) in adults. Qutenza was approved in May 2009 for the treatment of non-diabetic adults with PN. In September 2015 the licence was extended to include diabetic patients. This review presents the evidence which supports this licence variation.
