Key messages

  • For patients with chronic migraine (CM) and documented inadequate response to 2 to 4 classes of migraine preventive medications, clinically meaningful response rates were significantly greater with fremanezumab vs placebo.
  • Similar results were observed for patients with episodic migraine (EM) as for those with CM; however, some groups were too small to determine statistical significance for comparisons between fremanezumab and placebo.
  • Placebo responses were low and decreased with increasing number of classes of prior preventive treatments failed.
