Alder BioPharmaceuticals, Inc.

Eptinezumab is an investigational monoclonal antibody delivered by IV administration. It was designed for 100% bioavailability with high specificity and strong binding for rapid, robust and sustained suppression of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP).

At the meeting, more than a dozen presentations related to eptinezumab’s safety and efficacy of response in migraine prevention will be shared, including an analysis of 100% response rates for patients with episodic or chronic migraine who were treated with eptinezumab in the Phase 3 PROMISE-1 and PROMISE-2 clinical trials. Another key presentation will focus on the impact of eptinezumab on migraine severity and quality of life. Additional eptinezumab presentations at the meeting will feature a visual representation of the molecule’s binding properties and further analyses related to safety and quality of life data.

Dr. Paul Streck, chief medical officer of Alder said “We’re excited to share new data that reinforces eptinezumab as a significant migraine prevention treatment option that has the potential to help the millions of people with this debilitating and highly symptomatic disease,”. “We’ve previously presented data on eptinezumab’s efficacy and rapid onset of prevention benefit and these new analyses will show its impact in migraine-free months and improvements in severity and patient-reported outcomes in our clinical trials. We look forward to delivering this important treatment option early next year, if approved, to improve the lives of people living with migraine.”

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) accepted the Biologics License Application (BLA) filing for eptinezumab in April 2019, and set a Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) target action date of February 21, 2020.
