*Special note* The PBS has sent an unexpected second data release to change some of the rules for Bortezomib to allow supply during the COVID-19 emergency.

The Streamlined Authority code for bortezomib EFC items 4732C and 7275X has changed from 7992 to 10338 and the criterion that limits up to 4 cycles of treatment with bortezomib under this restriction has been temporarily removed due to the current risk of COVID-19. This allows continuity of treatment with PBS-subsidised bortezomib in those patients whose transplant may be delayed at this time.

Please note that you will need to manually write this authority code on your prescriptions.
