I'd just like to note the importance of giving the Lilly trial a fair shake.  The Merck molecule referenced above (Telcagepant) was a receptor antagonist (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telcagepant), whereas the Lilly molecule subject to the study is an antibody (http://www.arteaus.com/ly2951742.html).  I understand that these molecules reduce GCRP in different ways and are metabolized differently in the body.  Please read up on the Lilly molecule and review the clinical trial page, which has a listing of the study sites (https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02397473?term=NCT02397473&rank=1)  The study should be open for recruitment now to those qualified (http://clustertrials.com)  I for one am extremely hopeful and am looking forward to continued progress.

The Lilly trial is NOW recruiting.

Subject: Eli Lilly NOW Enrolling Episodic Cluster Headache study

Eli Lilly has recently informed Clusterbusters that they are now enrolling patients with Episodic Cluster Headache into their clinical study. Many of you likely reviewed the details on clinicaltrials.gov.  For more information and to pre-screen for this study, please click on the link below or dial the toll free number.

If you pre-qualify for the episodic cluster headache study based on the initial questionnaire, your information will be provided to a physician and you will be contacted for further evaluation.

This study is enrolling now. Get started here.

For more information, visit www.ClusterTrials.com or call us toll-free at 1-855-375-7139.


Yes this is very much different from the Merck attempt. Thank you lbh

We enrolled our first patient already and he will begin participating next week. I can say we because it's a Clusterbuster Clusterhead.

A couple of answers to some questions that have come up.

The Chronic study is set to begin recruiting patients in the beginning of June. Clusterbusters will let everyone know when it goes live on clinicaltrials dot gov

If you have been pre-approved already but were told that there was not a study location near you, that may change and you will be contacted. If you check the listing of site locations listed on clinicaltrials dot gov and scroll far right, you can check to see if the closest site near to you has started actively receiving patients. Some sites have not yet come online but will very shortly.

If you're not yet 18 years of age, but will be within the year, wait until you turn 18 and go through the pre-approval process to see if there are still any spots open.

If you are interested but have questions about your previous use of psychedelics, you're best bet is to go through the approval process and if pre-approved, you'll be able to get all your answers from the Clinical study site doctors/investigators. Don't fret, they are working with Clusterbusters so.....
