Details and patient eligibility


A migraine is a moderate to severe headache on one side of the head. A migraine attack is a headache that may be accompanied by throbbing, nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, or other symptoms. A number of treatments are available for adults with migraine but there are limited approved treatments available for participants less than 18 years of age. The main goal of the study is to evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of atogepant in pediatric participants between the ages of 6 and 17 with episodic migraine. Atogepant is a medicine currently approved to treat adults with episodic migraine (0 to 14 migraine days per month) and is being studied in pediatric participants between the ages of 6 and 17 with a history of episodic migraine. This is a Phase 3, open-label study of atogepant in participants with a history of episodic migraine. Participants must have completed participation in another study of atogepant (lead-in study) or completed the screening period of that study. Participants must have 4 to 14 migraine days and less than 15 headache days in the 4-week screening electronic diary (eDiary; similar to a smart phone). Around 250 participants will be enrolled in the study at approximately 100 sites worldwide. Atogepant is a tablet taken once a day by mouth. Participants between the ages of 12 and 17 will receive high dose atogepant for 52 Weeks. Participants between the ages of 6 and 11 will receive an atogepant dose determined in the lead-in study for 52 Weeks. There may be a bigger responsibility for participants in this study. Participants will attend regular visits during the study at a hospital or clinic. The effects of treatment will be checked by medical assessments, blood tests, checking for side effects, and completing questionnaires.

Inclusion criteria

  • Participants must be between 6 and 17 years of age (inclusive), with a history of episodic migraine.
  • The participant must have completed the lead-in Study M21-201, the pharmacokinetic (PK) substudy in Study M21-201, or completed the 4-week screening/baseline period and screen failed due to not meeting the number of migraine day requirements for the inclusion criteria in Study M21-201, and, in the judgment of the investigator, the participant is an appropriate candidate to be treated with a daily preventive migraine treatment with atogepant (not applicable for de novo migraine participants)
  • Weight is >= 20 kg (44 lbs) and < 135 kg (298 lbs).
  • A history of migraine with or without aura consistent with a diagnosis according to the International Classification of Headache Disorders, 3rd Edition (ICHD-3; 2018) for at least 6 months.

Exclusion criteria

  • History of migraine aura with diplopia or impairment of level of consciousness, hemiplegic migraine, or retinal migraine as defined by ICHD-3 (2018).
  • Have a current diagnosis of chronic migraine as defined by ICHD-3 (2018).
  • Have a current diagnosis of new persistent daily headache, trigeminal autonomic cephalgia (e.g., cluster headache), or painful cranial neuropathy as defined by ICHD-3 (2018).
  • Have any clinically significant hematologic, endocrine, pulmonary, renal, hepatic, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, or neurologic disease.
