PRINCETON, N.J., April 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Promius Pharma LLC announced today that it will present a poster titled "Predictors of Inadequate 24-Hour Sustained Response in Episodic Migraine: Results from American Migraine Prevalence and Prevention Study (AMPP)" in two sessions at the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) 68th Annual Meeting, to be held in Vancouver, BC, Canada, April 15–21, 2016.
From the 2006 AMPP Study respondents who met criteria for episodic migraine, the poster will report:
- The proportion usually pain-free 2 hours (2hPF) after acute treatment
- The proportion of these with sustained pain response at 24 hours (2hPF/24hSPR)
- Sociodemographic factors, lifestyle characteristics, headache features, and treatment patterns associated with inadequate responses to treatment
The poster presentations will show that among 8,333 adults, 44% reported an adequate 2‑hour pain free response, and 74% of these achieved 24-hour sustained pain relief. In those with adequate 2-hour pain free response, the presence of allodynia, depression, medication overuse, and more frequent headache days were associated with greater likelihood of headache returning within 24 hours.
There are two presentations of the poster at AAN 2016:
Presentation #1: I3:013
Session title: New and Emerging Therapeutic Options in Migraine and Other Headache Disorders
Session date: April 17, 2016
Presentation #2: P4.125
Session title: Headache: Imaging and Other
Session date: April 19, 2016

About the AMPP Study
Migraine impacts millions of people, and sustained pain relief may be difficult to achieve, even among those who respond initially to treatment. The AMPP Study provides cross-sectional and longitudinal (2006 – 2009) mailed questionnaire data from a large sample of persons with severe headache and migraine in a sample selected to be representative of the US population. The AMPP Study obtained sociodemographics, headache features, comorbid health conditions, and other information.
