Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43614   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7207   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).

    Phase 1 trials conducted solely on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    d. Patient fulfills the following criteria for CM in prospectively collected baseline information during the 28-day run-in period:
    - headache occurring on ≥15 days
    - on ≥8 days, fulfilling any of the following:

    o ICHD-3 criteria B and C for 1.2 Migraine with aura
    o Probable migraine (a migraine subtype where only 1 migraine criterion is missing)
    o The patient used a triptan or ergot derivative to treat established headache.
    e. Not using preventive medications (ie, at least 5 half-lives have passed since last use) or using no more than 1 preventive medication for migraine or other medical conditions (eg, propranolol used for hypertension) if the dose and regimen have been stable for at least 2 months prior to beginning the 28-day run-in period.
    f. Body mass index of 17.5 to 37.5 kg/m2 and a total body weight between 45 and 120 kg, inclusive
    g. All patients must be of nonchild bearing potential, defined as:

The reliability of sexual abstinence needs to be evaluated in relation to the duration of the clinical study and the preferred and usual lifestyle of the subject. Periodic abstinence (eg, calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, post-ovulation methods), declaration of abstinence for the duration of a study, and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of contraception.

    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    a. Patient has received onabotulinumtoxinA for migraine or for any medical or cosmetic reasons requiring injections in the head, face, or neck during the 4 months before screening.
