Amgen Presents First-Of-Its-Kind Data At AAN Annual Meeting Reinforcing Robust And Consistent Efficacy Of Aimovig ™ (erenumab) For Migraine Patients With Multiple Treatment Failures
The LIBERTY Trial was Conducted in Patients who Have Tried Two to Four Therapies Without Success -- a Uniquely Difficult-to-Treat Population Often Excluded From Migraine Prevention Trials Patients Taking Aimovig had Nearly Three-Fold Higher Odds of Having Their Migraine Days cut by Half or More Compared to Placebo Safety and Tolerability Were Consistent With Results Seen in the Pivotal Clinical Program; Over 97 Percent of Those Taking Aimovig Completed the Double-Blind Treatment Phase Data Selected by the American Academy of Neurology Science Committee as one of the Most Noteworthy Presentations at 2018 Annual Meeting THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., April 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Amgen (NA...
Findings, published inFrontiers in Molecular Biosciences, indicate that women are more likely to suffer migraines due to the action of oestrogen on the cranial nerves.Medical News Today
ConclusionsTo the best of our knowledge, it is the first case reported in the literature of a patient who has been affected by recurrent non-functional pituitary adenoma and medullary thyroid carcinoma, concomitantly. Although this association can be accidental, it emphasizes the fact that patients with a history of a neoplasm should be monitored regularly in order to diagnose and treat possible second primary cancers in a timely manner. Of note, this consideration is of great importance in patients whose first neoplasms have better prognosis and survival rates, which provide them more time to develop second primary cancer...
The purpose of this study was to compare pericranial tenderness of females with episodic cervical headache vs matched asymptomatic controls.
ConclusionDFN-11 was effective, tolerable, and safe in the acute treatment of 4 migraine attacks over 8 weeks, with consistent responses on pain and associated symptoms. Most TEAEs were mild, with a very low incidence of triptan-related TEAEs. DFN-11 is potentially an effective and safe alternative for the acute treatment of migraine.Trial registrationClinicalTrials.gov,NCT02569853. Registered 07 October 2015.
ConclusionsThis study met its primary endpoint, pain freedom at 2 h postdose, with DFN-11 significantly better than placebo, and the incidence of TEAEs and triptan sensations with DFN-11 was low. The 3 mg dose of sumatriptan in DFN-11 appears to be an effective alternative to a 6 mg SC dose of sumatriptan, with good safety and tolerability.

Results of new research suggest that changing levels of the female sex hormone estrogen make cells around a key nerve in the head and connected blood vessels more sensitive to migraine triggers, scientists say. And that increases migraine risk.
