New cure for migraine

First drug to prevent severe headaches approved by EU

In UK alone, chronic migraine affects more than six lakh people. And even though a number of treatment options exist to reduce the intensity of the symptoms, there is no definitive solution for it.

The first drug to prevent migraine has been approved by European health officials. According to a report in The Guardian, the drug Erenumab will now be examined by English and Scottish health agencies to determine if it is viable to be used by officials of National Health Service.

Manufacturers of Erenumab, Novartis, however, have said that the drug can be privately bought by patients — who suffer from four migraines in a month — after its license is approved by European Medicines Agency. Also known as Aimovig, the drug was intended to block the calcitonin gene-related peptide receptor that is thought to be instrumental in migraine activation.

In UK alone, chronic migraine affects more than six lakh people. And even though a number of treatment options exist to reduce the intensity of the symptoms, there – at present – is no definitive solution for it.

The manufacturers have said that Erenumab is the first and the only licensed drug designed primarily to prevent migraine. It can be administered without much help with an auto-injector pen once a month.
