Allergan reports positive clinical data for migraine therapy

9th February 2018

Allergan has announced new clinical findings highlighting the promise of a new drug for the treatment of migraines.

Positive results from ACHIEVE I, the first of two pivotal phase III clinical trials evaluating the efficacy, safety and tolerability of the oral CGRP receptor antagonist ubrogepant, have been highlighted by the company this week.

Both doses showed a statistically significant greater percentage of ubrogepant patients achieving pain freedom at two hours after the initial dose compared to placebo, while a significantly greater percentage of ubrogepant patients also achieved absence of the most bothersome migraine-associated symptoms.

Additional results from this study will be released at upcoming scientific meetings throughout 2018, while results from the second phase III trial, ACHIEVE II , are expected in the first half of the year. 

David Nicholson, chief research and development officer at Allergan, said: "Allergan remains committed to identifying, developing and bringing to market therapies that address unmet need for patients suffering from this debilitating disease."
