Lilly to Present Data for Galcanezumab for the Prevention of Migraine at the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Annual Meeting
Date:4/20/2017

INDIANAPOLIS, April 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) will highlight Phase 2 data evaluating galcanezumab for the prevention of migraine at the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) annual meeting, which will take place April 22-28, 2017, in Boston.

Lilly will present four abstracts at AAN, including safety and patient outcomes data for galcanezumab in patients with migraine and factors associated with a reduction in monthly migraine headache days among patients with episodic migraine. Lilly will also highlight findings from U.S. healthcare claims data identifying clinical characteristics and treatment patterns among patients with cluster headache.

Galcanezumab is a once-monthly, subcutaneously injected calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) antibody currently being studied as a potential treatment for the prevention of episodic and chronic migraine and cluster headache. Galcanezumab is a monoclonal antibody specifically designed to bind to and inhibit the activity of CGRP that may prevent or significantly reduce the frequency of monthly migraine headache days in patients with episodic and chronic migraine and cluster headache.

"Migraine and cluster headaches are serious, neurological diseases that have a significant physical and emotional impact on not only people affected, but those with whom they interact at home and at work," said Sheena Aurora, M.D., medical fellow and global launch leader, galcanezumab, Eli Lilly and Company. "Lilly is excited to present these galcanezumab data, which further our understanding of these diseases and support our decades-long effort to develop a targeted, preventive therapy that can bring significant value to patients, including a meaningful reduction in the number of days lost to migraine."

Studies, as well as the dates and times of the data sessions, are highlighted below.

About Galcanezumab Galcanezumab is a once-monthly, subcutaneously injected calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) antibody currently being studied as a potential treatment for the prevention of episodic and chronic migraine and cluster headache. Galcanezumab is a monoclonal antibody specifically designed to bind to and inhibit the activity of CGRP that may prevent or significantly reduce the frequency of monthly migraine headache days in patients with episodic and chronic migraine.

About Migraine Migraine is a painful, neurological disease characterized by recurrent episodes of severe headache, and is often accompanied by other symptoms including nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, and changes in vision.1,2 More than 38 million Americans have migraine, with three times more women affected by migraine compared to men.1,3 According to the Migraine Research Foundation, healthcare and lost productivity costs associated with migraine are estimated to be as high as $36 billion annually in the United States,1 yet it remains under-recognized and under-treated, with more than 40 percent of people going undiagnosed.4

About Cluster Headache Cluster headache, often characterized as the most painful of all headaches, is a neurological disease characterized by recurrent, severe headaches on one side of the head, usually behind or around one eye.2,5 Cluster headaches – commonly known as "attacks" – typically last between 15 minutes to more than two hours and can recur on the same day and occur daily to multiple times a day for weeks or longer, followed by periods of time in which no attacks occur.5 Cluster headache is classified as "chronic" when attacks occur for more than one year without a remission period, or with remission lasting less than one month.5
