Headache Clinical Trials

A Randomized, Multicenter, Double-Blind, Parallel, Sham-Controlled Study of Non-Invasive Vagus Nerve Stimulation (NVNS) for the Prevention of Migraines (PREMIUM II)

Aims: The purpose of this study is to investigate whether a medical device (gammaCore Sapphire) can be effective in reducing the frequency and severity of migraine without the use of medication. The device works by stimulating the vagus nerve. It has already been FDA-approved as treatment for use during a migraine attack. This study evaluates whether its consistent use can prevent future headaches in migraine sufferers.
