"The Pipeline in Headache Therapies"

Recommended Posts

Some discussion of new approaches in treating migraine and CH, and possible new, faster delivery systems for meds, with fewer side effects.

A couple of pages from the article are here: http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs40263-013-0090-x#page-1

The abstract says:

There remains a significant need for new medications and devices that can provide effective, rapid, and sustained pain relief without adverse effects or recurrence. Several new acute and preventive therapies for the treatment of migraine and cluster headaches have shown promise and are currently under investigation. This article covers innovative delivery mechanisms, calcitonin gene-related peptide receptor antagonists, antibodies to calcitonin gene-related peptide and its receptor, 5-HT1F receptor agonists, transient receptor potential vanilloid receptor modulators, orexin receptor antagonists, glial cell modulators, and neurostimulation.

There's some discussion of this over at ch.com (I'm sorry if there also has been here, and I have missed it): http://www.clusterheadaches.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1373679109
