In the phase 3 migraine prevention clinical studies,
patients received vaccines for various indications during double-blind, placebo-controlled and open-label galcanezumab treatment, however
subgroup analyses were not completed in this population.1
Eli Lilly and Company has not evaluated the safety and efficacy of galcanezumab in combination with vaccines.
Based on the mechanism of action and mechanism of elimination of galcanezumab, there is no reason to expect an interaction with the host immune system.
The decision to administer a vaccination to a patient prior to, during, or after galcanezumab treatment must be based on the clinical judgment of the prescribing healthcare practitioner after careful consideration of the patient's risk factors as well as the risks and benefits of vaccination.
CGRP mAbs Have no Direct Specific Immunomodulatory Effect
Calcitonin gene-related peptide mAbs have been engineered to bind to either the CGRP peptide or receptor with high specificity and minimized interaction with the immune system.2-4
Galcanezumab is a humanized IgG4 mAb that
binds CGRP, thus
preventing its biological activity.5
As such, it is not expected to
inhibit metabolic or induce enzymatic pathways
be metabolized by the cytochrome P450 families of drug-metabolizing enzymes, and
Vaccines Administered During Phase 3 Migraine Prevention Clinical Trials
Galcanezumab has been studied in phase 3 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies in adult patients for the prevention of
The studies had a duration of
3 months for prevention of chronic migraine, with an optional 9-month open-label extension phase.9
Galcanezumab has also been studied in a phase 3, open-label, 12-month safety study for the prevention of episodic or chronic migraine.10
Vaccine usage was low overall in the phase 3 migraine prevention studies.1 The influenza vaccine was the most commonly administered vaccine during galcanezumab treatment, with reported usage in 1.26% to 2.82% of patients receiving galcanezumab.
Other vaccines administered to at least one galcanezumab-treated patient included
