The three US FDA-approved anti-CGRP antibodies for migraine prevention have similar efficacy and matching prices, but Lilly thinks access to Emgality – including through value-based arrangements – along with the biologic's ease of use and headache-free data will differentiate the product.
The US FDA approved Teva's fremanezumab dosed monthly and quarterly versus Amgen's monthly Aimovig, and will launch at the same price. However, it's packaged as a pre-filled syringe instead of an autoinjector, has a higher rate of injection site reactions and it may launch alongside Lilly's Emgality.
