Study Title: "Migraine prevention in children and adolescents: results of an open study with a special butterbur root extract."
Number of Participants: 108 Children and Teenagers
Length of Study: 4 Months
Type of Study: Open Prospective Migraine Prevention Study
Publication: Headache
Study Result: 91% of patients felt substantially or at least slightly improved after 4 months of treatment.

In previous studies, two randomized and placebo-controlled trials with a total of 289 migraine patients have demonstrated the efficacy and safety of a special butterbur root extract in the reduction of migraine attacks in adults. In this study, researchers focused on the effectiveness of butterbur extract in prevention of migraines in children and teenagers.

108 children and adolescents between the ages of 6 and 17 were included in a multicenter prospective open-label study. Participants suffered from migraines diagnosed according to IHS classifications for at least 1 year. Patients were treated with 50 to 150 mg of the butterbur root extract depending on age for a period of 4 months. Treatment progression was recorded in migraine journals especially designed for children and adolescents.

77% of all patients reported a reduction in the frequency of migraine attacks of at least 50%. Attack frequency was reduced by 63%. 91% of patients felt substantially or at least slightly improved after 4 months of treatment. About 90% of each, doctors and patients, reported well-being or even improved well-being. No serious adverse events occurred and no adverse event caused a premature termination of treatment.
