  Purpose

This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover, two-attack, out-patient, early-intervention evaluation of subjects who have migraine with or without aura and who discontinued use of short acting triptan(s) within the past year due to non-response or intolerance. Subjects will treat 2 separate migraine attacks during the mild phase of each attack; one attack will be treated with one tablet of the Combination Product (sumatriptan succinate and naproxen sodium) and the other attack with one tablet of placebo (crossover design).

Detailed Description:

This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover, two-attack, out-patient, early-intervention evaluation of subjects who have migraine with or without aura and who discontinued use of short acting triptan(s) within the past year due to non-response or intolerance. Subjects will treat 2 separate migraine attacks during the mild phase of each attack; one attack will be treated with one tablet of the Combination Product (sumatriptan succinate and naproxen sodium) and the other attack with one tablet of placebo (crossover design); however, the order of these treatments will be randomized. A minimum 1-week washout period is required between study medication treatment of the first and second migraine attacks.

Each subject will have two visits: (1) a Screening visit at study entry and (2) a Final visit 4-10 days after the second (or last) attack. A telephone contact will also be required 1-3 days after the first attack, and then once per month until the Final visit.

The primary study objective is to assess efficacy as measured by sustained pain-free (SPF) relief of Combination Product compared to placebo in treating migraine subjects who have previously discontinued treatment with short acting triptans (rizatriptan, sumatriptan, almotriptan, zolmitriptan, and eletriptan).

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 65 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subject is male or female between 18 and 65 years old.
  • Subject has migraine with or without aura (2004 ICHD-II criteria).
  • Subject has 1-8 migraines per month over the previous 3 months and less than 15 total headache days per month.
  • Subject has recently (within 1 year) discontinued the use of eletriptan, rizatriptan, sumatriptan, almotriptan, or zolmitriptan, due to nonresponse or intolerable adverse events. Non-response is defined as documented discontinuation of treatment with eletriptan, rizatriptan, sumatriptan, almotriptan, or zolmitriptan for reasons related to response, including (but not limited to): slow onset of efficacy, inconsistent efficacy, inadequate overall efficacy, or inadequate sustained efficacy through 24 hours. Intolerance is defined as documented discontinuation of treatment with eletriptan, rizatriptan, sumatriptan, almotriptan, or zolmitriptan for other reasons, attributable to the triptan, outside of non-response.

A female is eligible to enter and participate in this study if she is of:

  • non-childbearing potential (i.e., physiologically incapable of becoming pregnant); or,
  • child-bearing potential, has a negative urine pregnancy test at screen, and agrees to one of the following acceptable measures of contraception:
  • Complete abstinence from intercourse from 2 weeks prior to administration of the investigational product, throughout the study, and for a time interval after completion or premature discontinuation from the study to account for elimination of the investigational drug (a minimum of 5 days); subjects utilizing this method must agree to use an alternate method of contraception if they should become sexually active and will be queried on whether they have been abstinent in the preceding 2 weeks when they present to the clinic for the Final Visit; or,
  • Female sterilization; or,
  • Sterilization of male partner; or,
  • Implants of levonorgestrel; or,
  • Injectable progestogen; or,
  • Oral contraceptive (combined or progestogen only); or,

  • Spermicide plus a mechanical barrier (e.g., spermicide plus a male condom or a female diaphragm); or,
  • Any other methods with published data showing that the highest expected failure rate for that method is less than 1% per year; or,
  • Any other barrier methods only if used in combination with any of the above acceptable methods.
  • Subject taking oral contraceptives has been on a stable regimen for at least 2 months prior to screening.
  • Subject is willing and able to provide informed consent prior to entry into this treatment phase of the study.

  • Subject is pregnant, actively trying to become pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • Subject has evidence of alcohol or substance abuse within the last year which, in the investigator's judgment, will likely interfere with the study conduct, subject cooperation, or evaluation and interpretation of the study results.
  • Subject has any concurrent medical or psychiatric condition which, in the investigator's opinion, may affect the interpretation of efficacy and safety data or which otherwise contraindicates participation in this clinical trial.
  • Subject has participated in an investigational drug trial within the previous four weeks or plans to participate in another study at any time during this study.
