Effect of Fremanezumab Monthly and Quarterly Doses on Efficacy Responses

Publication: Headache
Division: Cognigen


Objective: Exposure-response (E-R) models were developed to provide a description of the time-course of treatment effect for monthly and quarterly dosing regimens of fremanezumab.

Background: Fremanezumab is a monoclonal antibody for preventive treatment of episodic migraine (EM) and chronic migraine (CM). In phase 2b and 3 clinical studies of fremanezumab, significant reductions in migraine and headache days and other clinical endpoints were observed for patients with EM and patients with CM. Development of E-R models relating individual-specific measures of drug exposure to clinical endpoints provides a more granular understanding of the expected effects of different doses on therapeutic outcomes by accounting for variability in pharmacokinetic (PK) properties.
