Summary of "Device profile of the Nerivio for acute migraine treatment: overview of its efficacy and safety."

Non-invasive neuromodulation devices represent an emerging field in the acute treatment of migraine. High efficacy, favorable safety profile, good tolerability and low cost are important factors for the desired shift to non-pharmacological treatments. This will have the potential to improve the quality of life of people with migraine and reduce the risk for adverse events and medication overuse headache (MOH). Nerivio™ (Theranica Bio-Electronics, Israel) is a novel FDA-cleared remote electrical neuromodulation (REN) device for acute treatment of migraine. This review highlights the mechanism of action of REN and summarizes the clinical data. Nerivio™ has been studied in two randomized trials which provide support for the efficacy and safety of the device. Post-hoc analyses suggest that the efficacy of REN is non-inferior to usual care in general and to acute pharmacological treatments specifically. Nerivo™ integrates clinically meaningful efficacy with a high safety profile, satisfying a great unmet need in migraine acute care. The unique mechanism of action, in which the electrical stimulation is applied to peripheral nerves in the upper arm, permits the introduction of an innovative device with high efficacy and superior and improved usability aspects compared with acute pharmacological treatments and other approved devices.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The relative equivalency in the efficacy of different modes of treatment of a disease, most often used to compare the efficacy of different pharmaceuticals to treat a given disease.

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)

A subtype of migraine disorder, characterized by recurrent attacks of reversible neurological symptoms (aura) that precede or accompany the headache. Aura may include a combination of sensory disturbances, such as blurred VISION; HALLUCINATIONS; VERTIGO; NUMBNESS; and difficulty in concentrating and speaking. Aura is usually followed by features of the COMMON MIGRAINE, such as PHOTOPHOBIA; PHONOPHOBIA; and NAUSEA. (International Classification of Headache Disorders, 2nd ed. Cephalalgia 2004: suppl 1)
