Clinical trials for AJOVY

Clinical trials investigated the long-acting, anti-CGRP injection for the preventive treatment of migraine

AJOVY was evaluated in three phase 3, 12-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group trials, and a long-term extension study1-5

HALO trial designs

1000+ patients received AJOVY as a stand-alone preventive treatment1

280+ patients continued to receive their oral preventive treatment1

Nearly 600 patients had discontinued prior preventive treatment2

18% of women of childbearing age also took concomitant hormonal contraceptives2

There are no adequate data on the developmental risk associated with the use of AJOVY in pregnant women. This should be taken into consideration for women who are pregnant or plan to become pregnant while using AJOVY.1

HALO TRIAL DESIGNS2
CHRONIC MIGRAINE (CM) & EPISODIC MIGRAINE (EM)2

AJOVY quarterly treatment arm

Single dose of 675 mg at week 0 (three injections of 225 mg per 1.5 mL), followed at weeks 4 and 8 by placebo (one 1.5 mL injection at each visit)

AJOVY monthly treatment arm

CM: 675 mg dose at week 0 (three injections of 225 mg per 1.5 mL) and 225 mg at weeks 4 and 8 (one injection of 225 mg per 1.5 mL at each visit)

EM: 225 mg dose at weeks 0 (one injection of 225 mg per 1.5 mL and two 1.5 mL injections of placebo), and 225 mg at weeks 4 and 8 (one injection of 225 mg per 1.5 mL at each visit)

Placebo treatment arm

Three 1.5 mL injections at week 0 and 1.5 mL injection at weeks 4 and 8

CM: defined as ≥15 headache days per month3; EM: defined as <15 headache days per month.4

LONG-TERM EXTENSION STUDY2

AJOVY was evaluated in a 12-month, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group study evaluating monthly or quarterly dosing.

  • As the primary purpose of the study was the collection of long-term safety data for patients treated with AJOVY, the study was not placebo controlled. Patients and investigators were both blinded to the dosing regimen (quarterly vs monthly) to allow for comparisons between the two dosing options.
  • The study included 1890 patients with CM (1110) and EM (780).

LONG-TERM EXTENSION STUDY2
CHRONIC MIGRAINE (CM) & EPISODIC MIGRAINE (EM)

AJOVY quarterly treatment arm

Single dose of 675 mg at month 0 (three injections of 225 mg per 1.5 mL), followed by month 3, 6, 9, and 12, and placebo (one 1.5 mL injection) at months 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, and 11

AJOVY monthly treatment arm

CM (HALO placebo & new patients): 675 mg dose at month 0 (three injections of 225 mg per 1.5 mL), followed by 225 mg at months 1–12

CM (HALO patients): 225 mg dose at months 0–12 (one injection of 225 mg per 1.5 mL and two 1.5 mL injections of placebo)

EM (HALO & new patients): 225 mg dose at months 0–12 (one injection of 225 mg per 1.5 mL and two 1.5 mL injections of placebo)

CM: defined as ≥15 headache days per month3; EM: defined as <15 headache days per month.4

FOCUS TRIAL DESIGN5

AJOVY was evaluated in a phase 3b, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, placebo-controlled study evaluating efficacy and safety of quarterly and monthly treatment with AJOVY, compared to placebo in patients with chronic or episodic migraine who had experienced an inadequate response* to 2–4 classes of prior preventive treatments.

  • The study randomized 838 patients with chronic and episodic migraine2
  • Inadequate response to a prior medication was defined as: (1) no clinically meaningful improvement after at least 3 months (2) patient could not tolerate the drug (3) drug was contraindicated for patient or (4) drug was not suitable for the patient.
