What is Migraine?

A migraine is a moderate to severe headache described as a beating pain on one side of the head. It can be accompanied by other symptoms, including sensitivity to sounds and light, or feeling sick (nausea, vomiting).

Although the exact causes of migraine attacks are still unknown, multiple studies have confirmed that release of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is increased during acute migraine attacks.

The inhibition of CGRP and its receptor has proved effective in migraine pain relief, which suggests that it does contribute to the onset of a migraine.2
