About The Study

Approximately 777 adult men and women with episodic migraine will be selected to participate in this study. This study is being conducted at approximately 125 research centers in 10 countries and will include 8 telephone visits and 6 in office visits to a study site in your location over approximately 12 months.

Neither you nor your insurance company will have to pay for the study drug procedures that are done for the study.

Participants may be reimbursed for travel expenses that are incurred for each completed study visit.

You may qualify for the study if you:

  • Are 18-65 years old
  • Have been experiencing migraines for at least 1 year
  • On average, experience 6-14 migraine days per month

All study-related care is provided by specialist physicians and dedicated nurses. The purpose of the study is to research the safety and effectiveness of a study drug for the prevention of migraine attacks in adults who experience 6-14 migraine days per month

Frequently asked questions

What is a research study?

A research study (also called a clinical trial) is a medical study that helps to answer important questions about an investigational drug – these may include how well an investigational study drug works for a certain condition. All medications must be tested in clinical research studies before they can be approved and prescribed.

Why are research studies important?

A research study is the process by which potential new and innovative medications, interventions and treatments are approved and brought to market, so people can live happier and healthier lives. Even over-the-counter medications, such as NSAIDs, you may have used to counteract a headache, have gone through the clinical research study process before it was available at your local pharmacy.

What is the purpose of this study?

The purpose of this study is to see if the study drug is safe and helps prevent episodic migraines in adults that experience 6-14 migraine days per month and less than 15 headache days per month.

This study is for research purposes only. This study will help to learn about the study drug’s safety and effectiveness when compared to placebo (a substance that looks like a drug but has no drug in it) in people experiencing episodic migraines.

The study drug has been approved by the regulatory authorities for use in people with chronic migraine and other specific medical conditions but is not yet approved for the prevention of episodic migraines, which is why this study is being carried out.


What will this study involve?

This study will involve 8 telephone visits and 6 in office visits to a study site within a close distance to your home over 12 months.

This study is being conducted at approximately 125 research centers in 10 countries. Approximately 777 adult men and women with episodic migraine will be selected to participate in this study.

Will I be reimbursed?

Volunteers who qualify to take part in the study may receive reimbursement for travel expenses incurred for each completed study visit. Please discuss this with the study team when they contact you.

Is there a cost to participate?

Is there a cost to participate?

There is no cost to participate in the study. If you decide to take part:

· You will receive study-related care throughout the study from a team of experienced study doctors and nurses

· Neither you nor your insurance company will have to pay for the study drug procedures that are done for the study.


What else do I need to consider?

The research team will be able to explain more about what this study will involve, and it is up to you to decide if you want to take part. Participation in this study is voluntary. Whether or not you decide to participate in this study will not affect your current or future relationships with your doctors. If you decide to participate, you are free to withdraw at any time without affecting those relationships

How far is the study site?

We match you to a study site within a close travel distance from your home. If we are not running the study in your area currently, with your permission, we will keep you in our database and reach out once a study in your area becomes available. If, at any time, you decided you no longer want your information stored, you can opt out and we will delete your details.

About Migraines

Migraines are a disabling neurological disease characterized by recurrent and often debilitating headaches of moderate to severe intensity and are accompanied by symptoms that can include nausea, vomiting, and/or sensitivity to light or sound. 1

It is one of the most common neurologic disorders, affecting 12% of the general population and ranked second among the causes of disability worldwide. 2

Additional symptoms may include:

  • Vision loss
  • Vision phenomena (seeing shapes, bright spots, or light flashes)
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Weakness or numbness

Although migraines are not fully understood, it appears that environment and genetics may play a role. Migraine pain is caused by faulty signals from the brain interacting with blood vessels and surrounding nerves. 3 Many people who experience migraines can identify their triggers and are able to steer clear of them.

Common triggers can be:

The purpose of the study is to research the safety and effectiveness of a study drug for the prevention of migraine attacks in adults who experience 6-14 migraine days per month.
