Playing catch-up, Eli Lilly is hustling positive PhIII CGRP migraine data to the FDA as late-stage rivalry heats up

The top-line data from the Lilly $LLY study demonstrated that the 120 and 240 mg doses reduced the average number of migraine days by 4.3 to 4.8 days and 4.2 to 4.6 days a month. The placebo arm had a 2.3 to 2.8 day monthly drop in migraine days, on average, leaving the drug with a consistent two-day advantage that will likely do fairly well in the marketing battle to come as Teva, Alder and the powerhouse duo of Novartis $NVS and Amgen $AMGN hustle their competing CGRP drugs to the market.
