Key messages

  • This investigation assessed the cost-effectiveness of different strategies for the prevention of episodic and chronic migraine (EM and CM) considering evolving clinical practices in Canada
  • This robust cost-effectiveness assessment based on published clinical evidence and evolving medical practices is the first to establish that, when compared to existing therapies used sequentially for the prevention of EM and CM, fremanezumab, a safe and effective novel anti-CGRP agent, is a cost-effective option for the prevention of EM and CM in Canada.
  • Considering the significant unmet needs of patients with EM and CM, with a flexible monthly or quarterly dosing regimen, fremanezumab provides a convenient and cost-effective migraine prevention strategy for reducing the clinical and economic impact of EM and CM on patients, employers, payers, healthcare system, and society.
