electroCore's Clinical Trial Program into Non Invasive Vagus Nerve Stimulation Therapy Gathers Momentum
Oct 31 13
electroCore has announced that its European randomized controlled trial, GC - 002, for the prevention and acute treatment of chronic cluster headache has been found by the external statistical team to require no changes based on the planned interim sizing analysis. This study, which is a multicentre trial with sites in Germany -5, UK -3, Belgium -1, Italy -1, has as its primary outcome the reduction in the number of cluster headache attacks per week. The trial is a randomized controlled study involving parallel groups. One arm receiving the standard of care while the other arm is receiving the standard of care plus treatment with gammaCore - electroCore's non invasive vagus nerve stimulation (nVNS) therapy. The trial, which is due to finish at the end of the second quarter next year, has already enrolled 58 patients with a target total of 90 patients. electroCore's extensive clinical trials program is continuing to explore the potential of its revolutionary non invasive vagus nerve stimulation therapy across a number of conditions. Surgically invasive vagus nerve stimulation therapy has proven to be very effective in epilepsy and depression but because of its very high cost is not used except as a last resort. Its high cost has also deterred research into the many conditions where it is reported to have been effective.
