Evidence mounts for anti-CGRP treatment in cluster headache

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

During cluster headache attacks, plasma levels of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) increase, and trigeminal nerve activation leads to pain. A new study shows that CGRP infusion can induce cluster headache attacks in some patients, with important implications for the investigation of CGRP-targeted therapies in cluster headache.
