Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Cmax (maximum concentration of BI 44370 BS in plasma) [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
  • AUC0-2 (area under the concentration-time curve of BI 44370 BS in plasma over the time interval from 0 to 2 h after drug administration) [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
  • AUC0-∞ (area under the concentration-time curve of BI 44370 BS in plasma over the time interval from 0 extrapolated to infinity) [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
  • tmax (time from dosing to maximum measured concentration) [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • AUC0-tz (area under the concentration-time curve of BI 44370 BS in plasma over the time interval from 0 to the time of the last quantifiable data point) [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
  • %AUCtz-∞ (the percentage of the AUC0-∞ that is obtained by extrapolation) [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
  • AUCt1-t2 (Area under the concentration-time curve of BI 44370 BS in plasma over the time interval t1 to t2) [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
  • λz (terminal rate constant in plasma) [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
  • t1/2 (terminal half-life of BI 44370 BS in plasma) [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
  • MRTp.o. (mean residence time of BI 44370 BS in the body after p.o. administration) [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
  • CL/F (Apparent clearance of BI 44370 BS in plasma after extravascular administration) [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
  • Vz/F (apparent volume of distribution during the terminal phase λz following an extravascular dose) [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
  • Ae0-12 (amount of BI 44370 BS eliminated in urine from time point 0 - 12 h after drug administration) [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
  • fe0-12 (fraction of BI 44370 BS eliminated in urine from time point 0 - 12 h after drug administration) [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
  • CLR,0-12 (renal clearance of BI 44370 BS from time point 0 - 12 h after drug administration) [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
  • Changes from baseline in Physical examination [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
  • Changes from baseline in Vital signs: Blood pressure (BP) and pulse rate (PR) [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
  • Changes from baseline in 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
  • Occurrence of Adverse events (AEs) [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
  • Assessment of tolerability by investigator [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
  • Number of participants with abnormalities in clinical laboratory parameters [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]

Enrollment: 19

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Adult male and female migraine patients (age 18 to 65 years) with or without aura, diagnosed according to IHS criteria.
  • Established migraine diagnosis for >= 1 year.
  • Age at migraine onset <= 50 years.
  • Well documented (for >= 3 months) retrospective history of migraine with headache of moderate to severe intensity and with an attack duration of at least 6 hours and migraine frequency of 2-8 times / month
  • Other forms of headache are permitted if they on average occur on not more than 10 days / month and if the patient is able to differentiate migraine headache from other forms of headache.
  • Patient has provided written informed consent in accordance with ICH-GCP and local legislation.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Women of child-bearing potential without an adequate method of contraception
  • Any woman of child-bearing potential not having a negative serum pregnancy test at screening and a negative urine pregnancy test at baseline

  • Males not willing to use adequate contraception (condom use plus another form of contraception e.g. spermicide, oral contraceptive taken by female partner, sterilization, IUD [intrauterine device]) during the whole study period from the time of the first intake of study drug until three months after the last intake.
  • History of hemiplegic, ophthalmoplegic, or basilar migraine or cluster headache.
  • History of treatment resistant migraine attacks, defined as a lack of response to a range of commonly used acute anti-migraine compounds.
  • History of , clinical evidence for, or screening/baseline findings suggestive of significant medical disorders (e.g. cardiovascular, peripheral vascular, hepatic, respiratory, haematological, renal, gastrointestinal, immunological, metabolic, hormonal, neurological or psychiatric disorders)
