The disability of CM prevents patients from performing daily activities, leading to substantial personal, societal, and familial disturbance. More consecutive days of headache freedom are associated with meaningful improvements in quality of life.
To evaluate the impact of onabotulinumtoxinA versus placebo on the number of consecutive headache-free days and days without moderate/severe headache in participants with chronic migraine (CM).
This was a post hoc analysis of the phase 3, 24-week, randomized, double-blind PREEMPT clinical trials (NCT00156910, NCT00168428). A headache day was defined as a day with ≥4 continuous hours of headache, per participant diary; participants recorded headache severity as mild, moderate, or severe. Percentages of participants who experienced ≥7, ≥14, and ≥21 consecutive days without headache or without a moderate/severe headache that required acute medication were compared between onabotulinumtoxinA and placebo groups. Only diary data after the first dose were used to calculate consecutive days without headache. Data were pooled to improve precision. Two-tailed Fisher’s exact tests were performed to compare onabotulinumtoxinA versus placebo during the double-blind phase.
A total of 1384 participants were randomized to onabotulinumtoxinA (n=688) or placebo (n=696) in the PREEMPT trials. During the 28-day baseline screening phase, the mean number of headache days was 19.9 for onabotulinumtoxinA and 19.8 for placebo (P=0.498). During the double-blind treatment phase, significantly more participants treated with onabotulinumtoxinA than placebo experienced ≥7 (70% vs 64%; P=0.039), ≥14 (40% vs 31%; P<0.001), and ≥21 (26% vs 18%; P<0.001) consecutive headache-free days without acute medication use. Significant differences favoring onabotulinumtoxinA treatment remained when the analysis was restricted to participants who experienced ≥7 (74% vs 68%; P=0.018), ≥14 (42% vs 34%; P=0.003), and ≥21 (28% vs 21%; P=0.003) consecutive moderate/severe headache-free days without acute medication use.
OnabotulinumtoxinA treatment resulted in significantly more consecutive headache-free days and moderate/severe headache-free days than placebo in CM patients.
