Abstract Details

Rimegepant for the Acute and Preventive Treatment of Migraine in Women: Results From 4 Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Clinical Trials
Headache
P9 - Poster Session 9 (5:30 PM-6:30 PM)
2-007

Rimegepant is an orally administered small molecule CGRP receptor antagonist indicated for the acute and preventive treatment of migraine.

Compare the efficacy of rimegepant 75 mg with placebo in the acute and preventive treatment of migraine in women.

Post hoc subgroup analyses were conducted using pooled data from 3 double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled studies of rimegepant 75 mg for acute treatment, and a 12-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of rimegepant 75 mg for preventive treatment in female adults aged ≥18 years with a ≥1-year history of migraine. In the acute treatment trials, the co-primary endpoints were pain freedom and most bothersome symptom (MBS) freedom at 2 hours postdose. In the preventive treatment trial, the primary endpoint was mean change from the 4-week observation period in monthly migraine days (MMDs) in the last 4 weeks of the double-blind treatment phase (weeks 9-12). Treatment groups were compared using nominal p-values.

In the acute treatment trials, of the 3507 efficacy-evaluable participants, 86% were female (N=3025, rimegepant n=1511, placebo n=1514). Rimegepant was more effective than placebo for 2-hour pain freedom (21.1% vs 12.2%, p<0.0001) and MBS freedom (36.9% vs 26.7%, p<0.0001). In the preventive treatment trial, of the 695 efficacy-evaluable participants, 83% were female (N=577, rimegepant n=282, placebo n=295). Least squares mean changes (SE) from the observation period in MMDs during weeks 9 to 12 were greater on rimegepant −4.5 days (0.25) than placebo −3.7 days (0.25), with least squares mean difference of −0.8 days (95% CI −1.47 to −0.08; p=0.0285).

Rimegepant 75 mg showed benefits for the acute and preventive treatment of migraine in adult women.
