OASIS(EM) Trial Summary

This trial will test if erenumab is effective and safe in preventing migraines in children and adolescents. The hypothesis is that erenumab will reduce the number of monthly migraines days compared to placebo.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for children (6-11 years) and adolescents (12-17 years) with episodic migraines, occurring 4 to less than 15 days per month. Participants must have a history of migraine for at least one year and be able to follow the study's diary requirements. They can't join if they've had certain types of headaches, no response to more than two preventive medications, substance abuse issues, significant neurological disorders other than migraine, or are using excluded treatments.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The trial tests different doses of Erenumab against a placebo in preventing migraines in young patients. The goal is to see if Erenumab reduces the number of monthly migraine days over three months compared to placebo. Patients will randomly receive one of three Erenumab doses or a placebo without knowing which one.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Erenumab may cause reactions like injection site pain or redness, constipation, muscle spasms or cramps. It might also lead to allergic reactions such as rash or itching. Since it's being tested in children and adolescents, close monitoring for any unusual side effects is crucial.
