Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to investigate how the body absorbs, distributes, and get rid of eptinezumab when given directly into a vein.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Migraine in Children Migraine Drug: Eptinezumab Phase 1

Detailed Description:

This is an interventional, open-label pharmacokinetic study with eptinezumab, consisting of a single-dose, 20-week main study period (Part A) and an optional 44-week multiple-dose extension period (Part B).

The main study period includes a single IV infusion of eptinezumab. The optional extension period includes 3 additional eptinezumab infusions 12 weeks apart (reflecting recommended dosing interval in adults), for a total of up to 4 infusions over the course of the study.

At least 32 patients with migraine will be enrolled: 16 patients aged 6 to 11 years, and 16 patients aged 12 to 17 years, inclusive.

    Maximum observed plasma concentration of eptinezumab

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clearance (CL) [ Time Frame: From dosing to week 20 ]
    Plasma clearance

  2. Volume of distribution (Vz) [ Time Frame: From dosing to week 20 ]
  3. Development of anti-eptinezumab antibodies (ADA) [ Time Frame: From screening to week 12 ]
  4. Characterization of anti-eptinezumab antibodies for neutralizing activity (NAb) [ Time Frame: From screening to week 12 ]
