Patient and drug company pressure to allow multiple cancer listings to be made at once for checkpoint inhibitors seems unlikely to be realised, with the release of a new PBAC report.

Supporters of the move say it will make the process of listing a drug on the PBS more efficient, giving patients, particularly those with rare cancers, access to potentially effective treatments.
