Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE A Phase III Trial of e-TNS for the Acute Treatment of Migraine
Official Title  ICMJE A Phase III Randomized, Double-blind, Sham-controlled Trial of e-TNS for the Acute Treatment of Migraine (The TEAM Study)
Brief Summary The main objective of this study is to have Phase III evidences of the efficacy of the Cefaly® Abortive Program device used at home for 2 hours to treat a migraine attack. This randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled trial will study the abortive treatment of migraine using the Cefaly® Abortive Program device.
Detailed Description The main objective of this study is to have Phase III evidences of the efficacy of the Cefaly® Abortive Program device used at home for 2 hours to treat a migraine attack, as triptans are generally used. That is to say having randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled data of the efficacy and safety of the Cefaly® Abortive Program device in the abortive treatment of acute migraine as measured by 2-hour pain freedom, pain relief and migraine-associated symptoms freedom, plus evolution of these measurements for 24 hours after the beginning of the treatment session.
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Not Applicable
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition  ICMJE Migraine
Intervention  ICMJE
  • Device: Verum Cefaly® Abortive Program device
    The Cefaly® Abortive Program device is an external cranial neurostimulator designed for supraorbital neurostimulation, also known as external Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation (e-TNS). The Verum Cefaly® Abortive Program device will deliver verum external trigeminal nerve stimulation.
  • Device: Sham Cefaly® Abortive Program device
    The Cefaly® Abortive Program device is an external cranial neurostimulator designed for supraorbital neurostimulation, also known as external Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation (e-TNS). The Sham Cefaly® Abortive Program device will deliver sham external trigeminal nerve stimulation.
