This analysis performed signal identification using a self-controlled risk interval analysis for erenumab by monitoring non-pregnancy and non-cancer outcomes among new users of erenumab in the Sentinel Distributed Database (SDD). The study period includes data from May 17, 2018 to June 30, 2022. We distributed this request to six Sentinel Data Partners on January 17, 2023.
Statistical alerts generated by this analysis do not on their own represent safety signals. Alerts are triaged in consideration of the study design, existing drug knowledge, therapeutic context, treated population, and potential public health impact. Alerts determined to be newly identified safety signals (NISS) follow the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research manual of policies and procedures for NISS (MAPP 4121.3).
