The extension study included participants who had enrolled in the Phase 3 PROGRESS and ELEVATE clinical trials with a baseline monthly migraine day burden of 14.5 days and completed these studies.

Key findings from the interim analysis include:

  • Monthly migraine days improved on average by 8.5 days at Weeks 13-16 and this was consistent over 48 weeks.

  • Similar improvements were observed for monthly headache days and monthly acute medication use days.

  • 70% of subjects achieved ≥50% reduction in monthly migraine days at Weeks 13-16, and this was consistent during the 48 weeks of open-label treatment.

Overall safety results were consistent with the known safety profile of atogepant 60 mg, and no new safety signals were identified.

The most common treatment-emergent adverse events (≥5%) were COVID-19 (28.7%), nasopharyngitis (10.9%), and constipation (8.2%).

Atogepant, also known as Qulipta in the U.S. and Aquipta in the European Union (EU), is approved in 45 countries.

In 2023, Qulipta generated sales of $408 million, with fourth-quarter 2023 sales of $114 million.

AbbVie raised its long-term outlook for Ubrelvy and Qulipta revenues and expects peak combined Ubrelvy and Qulipta revenues of more than $3 billion, an increase of approximately $1 billion compared to previous guidance for peak revenues of more than $1 billion for each asset.
