A Study to Assess an Auto-injector Being Used to Treat a Migraine Attack

22:13 EDT 20th April 2014 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this research study is to evaluate an investigational auto-injector system for delivering sumatriptan under the skin for a single migraine attack.

The study could take approximately 5 weeks and will include about 3 office visits to the study doctor, the patient will be contacted every 2 weeks until the patient experiences a migraine and uses the auto-injector. The last visit will be done by a telephone follow-up call.


Investigational Plan:

1. Screening Visit [Visit 0 / 0-14 days prior to receipt of study drug]

2. Baseline Visit [Visit 1 / Provision of study drug and subject training]

3. Treatment Visit [Visit 2 / within 72 hours after study drug administration]

4. Follow-up Visit [Visit 3 / Telephone follow-up 7-10 days after study drug administration]

Study Design

Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A serotonin agonist that acts selectively at 5HT1 receptors. It is used in the treatment of MIGRAINE DISORDERS.

Enzymes that catalyze the first step leading to the oxidation of succinic acid by the reversible formation of succinyl-CoA from succinate and CoA with the concomitant cleavage of ATP to ADP (EC or GTP to GDP (EC and orthophosphate. Itaconate can act instead of succinate and ITP instead of GTP.EC 6.2.1.-.

An enzyme that plays a role in the GLUTAMATE and butanoate metabolism pathways by catalyzing the oxidation of succinate semialdehyde to SUCCINATE using NAD+ as a coenzyme. Deficiency of this enzyme, causes 4-hydroxybutyricaciduria, a rare inborn error in the metabolism of the neurotransmitter 4-aminobutyric acid (GABA).

A flavoprotein containing oxidoreductase that catalyzes the dehdyrogenation of SUCCINATE to fumerate. In most eukaryotic organisms this enzyme is a component of mitochondrial electron transport complex II.

A class of disabling primary headache disorders, characterized by recurrent unilateral pulsatile headaches. The two major subtypes are common migraine (without aura) and classic migraine (with aura or neurological symptoms). (International Classification of Headache Disorders, 2nd ed. Cephalalgia 2004: suppl 1)
