Quick Hits: FDA Clears New Migraine Prevention Drug

The intravenous medication is taken every 3 months to prevent migraines.

Lundbeck’s Vyepti is a humanized monoclonal antibody that is taken once every 3 months in either 100 or 300 mg doses. Its approval was based on the results of two Phase III clinical studies that focused on both episodic and chronic migraines. Lundbeck expects the drug to be available in early April.
