Two-Year Study Results Show the Pulsante(R) Microstimulator Provides Sustained, Long-Term Relief for Cluster Headache Patients
New Hope for Cluster Headache Sufferers
REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - May 19, 2016) - A peer-reviewed paper* in the International Headache Society journal Cephalagia reported that cluster headache patients treated with the Pulsante® Microstimulator achieved effective pain relief for 24 months. Over 60% of patients enrolled in a follow-up of the original Pathway CH-1 study maintained their therapeutic response for two years.
A total of 5,956 attacks were evaluated across 33 chronic cluster headache patients in the open-label follow-up study. At two years, 45% of patients experienced acute effectiveness in ≥ 50% of attacks by using only the Pulsante® Microstimulator. Furthermore, 33% of patients experienced a ≥ 50% reduction in attack frequency versus baseline. A total of 61% of patients were acute and/or frequency responders in the long-term study.
The Pulsante® Microstimulator is the first electroceutical device with documented long-term effectiveness for the treatment of cluster headache. The system stimulates the sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG), which plays a critical role in cluster headache pathophysiology. The device is inserted through the gum using a minimally invasive technique that leaves no visible scars. The targeted therapy provides both pain relief from acute cluster headaches and/or a reduction in cluster headache frequency, reducing cluster headache disability.
