  • Overview

    Women with migraine have unique needs that often remain undermanaged. Have you taken a critical look at the standard of care and how current treatment strategies have recently shifted? Groundbreaking research on the calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) pathway has led to the development of new medications that act on the specific cascade of inflammatory response associated with migraine. Also called gepants, the CGRP receptor antagonists confer clinical benefit to patients who seek better control of their migraines.

    Tune in to this Women’s Health 2021 program to hear our experts, Drs. Peter Goadsby and Kathleen Mullin, discuss the diagnosis of migraine with a focus on the recent evolution of acute and preventive treatment strategies and the role of gepants. Are you doing all you can to ensure that your patients’ needs are optimally addressed?
