Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that are conducted in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA);
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU / EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development.
  • Learn   more about the EU Clinical Trials Register   including the source of the information and the legal basis.

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   38965   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6398   are clinical trials conducted with subjects less than 18 years old.
    The register also displays information on   18700   older paediatric trials (in scope of Article 45 of the Paediatric Regulation (EC) No 1901/2006).
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

Patients must be able to differentiate a migraine headache from an interval (e.g., tension-type) headache.6. Patients may take a single medication effective for migraine prophylaxis, for any reason. If taking a medication effective for migraine prophylaxis, subjects must have been taking a maintenance dose for at least 1 month prior to the Screening Visit, and must remain on this stable dose for the duration of the trial. 7. Patients must be in generally good health as confirmed by medical and medication history, and baseline physical examination including vital signs.8. Female patients of childbearing potential must not suspect to be pregnant and have an effective method of birth control for at least 30 days prior to study entry and throughout the study (see note below). 9.

Patients must be able and willing to read and comprehend written instructions, and comprehend and complete the patient’s diary required by the protocol. 11. After full explanation, patients must have signed an informed consent document indicating that they understand the purpose of and the procedures required for the study and are willing to participate in the study.12. Patients must either use Almotriptan for their migraine acute attacks treatment or prove through the ANAES scale in the basal visit that a change in their treatment approach is required.Note: Female patients of childbearing potential should be practicing an effective method of birth control (e.g., intrauterine device, double-barrier method, male partner sterilisation) or hormonal contraceptives (i.e., oral contraceptives, contraceptive injections, contraceptive patch, contraceptive vaginal ring) for at least 30 days prior to study entry and throughout the study; or be practicing abstinence and agree to continue abstinence or to use an acceptable method of contraception (as listed above) should sexual activity commence.

Patients who have exclusively migraine aura without headache.6. Patients who typically experience vomiting with their headaches.7. Patients with hemiplegic or basilar type migraines.8. Patients who typically have headaches that occur predominantly upon awakening in the morning.9. Patients who have previously discontinued Almotriptan therapy due to an adverse event or lack of efficacy. 10.

Patients starting nonpharmacologic approaches for migraine treatment (e.g., acupuncture, biofeedback, chiropractic methods) within 14 days of Basal Visit. However, subjects using nonpharmacologic approaches for at least 14 days prior to Basal Visit and intend to maintain the same approaches for the duration of the study, will be permitted to enter the trial. Nonpharmacologic approaches cannot be started during the study.15. Patients known to have any significant, unstable medical disease (see Almotriptan SPC, attachment)16.
