A Study of Galcanezumab (LY2951742) in Participants 6 to 17 Years of Age With Episodic Migraine (REBUILD-1)

A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study of Galcanezumab in Patients 6 to 17 Years of Age With Episodic Migraine - the REBUILD-1 Study
medical condition:
Episodic Migraine


The main purpose of this study is to evaulate the efficacy and safety of galcanezumab in participants 6 to 17 years of age for the preventive treatment of episodic migraine. The primary objective is to demonstrate the superiority of galcanezumab versus placebo in the reduction of monthly migraine headache days across the 3-month double-blind treatment period.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Have a diagnosis of migraine with or without aura as defined by the IHS ICHD-3 guidelines (1.1 or 1.2 according to ICHD-3 [2018]), with a history of migraine headaches of at least 6 months prior to screening.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • History of IHS ICHD-3 diagnosis of new daily persistent headache, cluster headache or migraine subtypes including hemiplegic (sporadic or familial) migraine and migraine with brainstem aura (previously basilar-type migraine).
  • History of significant head or neck injury within 6 months prior to screening; or traumatic head injury at any time that is associated with significant change in the quality or frequency of their headaches, including new onset of migraine following traumatic head injury.
  • Participants with a known history of intracranial tumors or developmental malformations including Chiari malformations.
