Vazegepant

Identification

Name
Vazegepant
Accession Number
DB15688
Description

Vazegepant is an antagonist of the calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) receptor currently in phase 3 trials in an intranasal formulation for the treatment of migraine. If FDA approved, it will join other previously-approved "-gepant" drugs rimegepant and ubrogepant as an additional treatment alternative for patients with migraine, particularly those for whom traditional triptan therapy has proven ineffective.

On April 15th, 2020, a phase 2 clinical trial (NCT04346615: Safety and Efficacy Trial of Vazegepant Intranasal for Hospitalized Patients With COVID-19 Requiring Supplemental Oxygen)1 began to investigate the use of intranasally administered vazegepant to combat the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) sometimes seen in patients with COVID-19. Acute lung injury activates the release of CGRP, which plays a role in the development of ARDS - CGRP antagonists, then, may help to blunt the significant inflammation associated with COVID-19.2 The clinical trial is expected to complete in September 2020.1
