    A New Class of Drugs for Migraine Prevention: Calcitonin Gene-Related Peptide-Directed Treatments. Program 171

    Program Description

    Migraine is a chronic condition characterized by episodic attacks of disabling headaches. These attacks often present with any combination of pain, nausea, light and sound sensitivity, or vomiting. In the United States, approximately 18% of women and 6% of men experience at least 1 migraine headache per year.  The total costs of disability attributable to these migraines were estimated to exceed $13 billion a year in the United States in 1998. In addition, another study found that the total cost of lost productive time due to any type of headache pain was $19.6 billion (in 2002 US dollars).

    We will discuss migraine treatments with an emphasis on a new class of migraine medications.

    • 1.     Explain the mechanism of action of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP)-directed treatments for migraine.
    • 2.    Discuss published safety and efficacy data for approved CGRP monoclonal antibodies.
    • 3.    Describe the current place in therapy of the anti-CGRP medications.
    • 4.    Explain the role of the pharmacist in educating patients on the use of the CGRP products.
