Identifying New Antimigraine Targets: Lessons from Molecular Biology

11 Citationer (Scopus)

Abstract

Primary headaches are one of the most common conditions; migraine being most prevalent. Recent work on the pathophysiology of migraine suggests a mismatch in the communication or tuning of the trigeminovascular system, leading to sensitization and the release of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP). In the current Opinion, we use the up-to-date molecular understanding of mechanisms behind migraine pain, to provide novel aspects on how to modify the system and for the development of future treatments; acute as well as prophylactic. We explore the distribution and the expression of neuropeptides themselves, as well as certain ion channels, and most importantly how they may act in concert as modulators of excitability of both the trigeminal C neurons and the Aδ neurons.
