A landmark ruling against two leading drug companies could save the NHS "hundreds of millions" a year.

Novartis and Bayer were trying to stop NHS doctors from prescribing a cheaper treatment for a serious eye condition.

Drug company Novartis said they were "disappointed" because patients were being asked to accept an unlicensed treatment to save the NHS money.
