Abstract Details

Beyond migraine headache day reduction: Clinically meaningful improvement in disability (MIDAS score) in the absence of greater than 50% reductions in monthly migraine days with galcanezumab
Headache
P10 - Poster Session 10 (8:00 AM-9:00 AM)
2-008
The American Headache Society (AHS) Consensus Statement states continued treatment with monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) to calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) or its receptor is supported by either: 1) ≥50% MHD reduction or 2) clinically meaningful improvement in migraine-specific patient-reported outcome measures (eg. MIDAS).
Quantify the proportion of phase III galcanezumab study participants with episodic migraine (EM) and clinically meaningful improvement in the Migraine Disability Assessment (MIDAS) despite monthly migraine headache day (MHD) reduction <50%.
Data were pooled for participants with EM treated with galcanezumab 120 or 240 mg versus placebo in EVOLVE-1, EVOLVE-2, and CONQUER phase III studies and who experienced >0% and <50% MHD reduction during the trial period. Clinically meaningful MIDAS improvement is defined by the AHS Consensus Statement as either 1) reduction of ≥5 points for baseline score 11-20 or 2) reduction of ≥30% for baseline score >20.
1551 phase III study participants had a MHD improvement >0%, mean age was 41.5 (SD=11.4) years; 84.8% were female; baseline MHD frequency was: 9.2 (SD=2.9) days. Within this group, MHD improvement was <50% in 35.7% (n=276) and 41.2% (n=240) of treatment group participants and 64.3% (n=417) and 57.3% (n=340) of the placebo group participants at 3 months and 6 months respectively. Of this group with MHD improvement >0% and <50%, clinically significant MIDAS improvement was seen in 58.0% (n=160) of the treatment group participants versus 50.6% (n=211) for placebo at 3 months (OR 1.26, 95% CI [0.92, 1.73], p=0.144) and 62.5% (n=150) of treatment group participants versus 52.9% (n=180) for placebo at 6 months (OR 1.47, 95% CI [1.05, 2.06], p=0.024).
In phase III galcanezumab trials, a majority of participants with EM who experienced >0% and <50% MHD reduction achieved clinically meaningful improvement in disability. At 6 months, this improvement is statistically superior to placebo.
