Published: Jun 05, 2018
NEW HAVEN, Conn., June 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Biohaven Pharmaceutical Holding Company Ltd. (NYSE: BHVN) today announced that expanded data from two randomized, pivotal Phase 3 clinical trials of rimegepant, along with other important preclinical and clinical results, will be presented at the American Headache Society (AHS) 60th Annual Scientific Meeting in San Francisco, CA, June 28-July 1, 2018.
Biohaven is presenting further results from its two pivotal Phase 3 clinical trials with rimegepant in the acute treatment of migraine. Researchers will present data on the durability and consistency of clinical effect seen with a single oral dose across multiple outcome measures from both trials. Biohaven will also present results from a preclinical study in which its CGRP receptor antagonists were not observed to have vasoconstrictive properties in human coronary or cerebral arteries. Expanded data from a Phase 1 trial evaluating the bioequivalence of oral tablet and orally dissolving tablet formulations of rimegepant also will be discussed.
Vlad Coric, M.D., CEO of Biohaven commented, "We are grateful to the AHS for accepting four late-breaking presentations regarding rimegepant. Biohaven is pleased to be able to present the full breadth of our Phase 3 trials that demonstrate the clinical benefit of rimegepant on multiple outcome measures important to migraine patients, including sustained pain freedom and pain relief, and improvement on measures of functional disability. We are also excited to present in vitro human artery data supporting the potentially favorable cardiovascular profile of rimegepant. The Biohaven team looks forward to sharing our clinical and preclinical results with the patients and medical community at AHS."
