Bottom Line: For all items, though recurrence tended to be lower along with longer half-life, no significant statistical correlation was found.In addition, a significant correlation was observed for Ф1D (p < 0.05).The most significant correlation was observed between recurrence rate and Ф1D at 12 h after administration (p < 0.01).

ABSTRACT

Background: In this study, we retrospectively analyzed the relationship between headache recurrence and serotonin 5-HT1B/1D receptor occupancy (Φ1B and Φ1D). Triptans marketed in Japan (sumatriptan, zolmitriptan, eletriptan, rizatriptan, naratriptan) were investigated.

Methods: Receptor occupancies were calculated from both the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data of triptans. We examined the relationships between recurrence rate and elimination half-lives, and Ф1B and Ф1D, as calculated from the time-course of plasma drug concentration obtained from other studies. The time until Ф1B and Ф1D became 50% or less, 40% or less, and 30% or less was calculated as duration time to examine the relationship with recurrence rate.

Results: For Ф1B, eletriptan remained at a low level. For Ф1D, it was indicated that all triptans obtained an occupancy of 80% or higher at maximum. For all items, though recurrence tended to be lower along with longer half-life, no significant statistical correlation was found. For both Ф1B and Ф1D, the recurrence rate tended to be lower as the duration became longer. In addition, a significant correlation was observed for Ф1D (p < 0.05). For clarifying the Ф value and time period most closely correlated with recurrence rate, recurrence and Ф1B and Ф1D at 6, 12, and 18 h after administration were calculated. The most significant correlation was observed between recurrence rate and Ф1D at 12 h after administration (p < 0.01).

Conclusions: As an index for evaluating headache recurrence following triptan administration, recurrence rate and Ф1D value at 12 h after administration were found to be most closely correlated and useful for analysis. Our results indicate that headache recurrence inhibition can be evaluated using these values.

Mentions: The relationships between recurrence rate and elimination half-lives, and Ф1B and Ф1D, as calculated from the time-course of plasma drug concentration obtained from other studies, are shown in Fig. 3. In our investigation of elimination half-life, zolmitriptan with active metabolites was excluded, as it could not be examined only on the basis of half-life in an unchanged drug.Fig. 3
