Next Generation Migraine Therapies – San Diego

Apr62019

Who Should Attend
This program is designed for Neurologists, Family Practitioners, Internists, and other health professionals who would like more information on the proper diagnosis and treatment of chronic migraine patients.

Educational Objectives

  • Recognize the lack of awareness of the basic science and therapeutic potential of CGRP mAbs in the prevention of migraine.
  • Identify mAbs, particularly CGRP and its receptor, provide effective prophylaxis of migraine.
  • Address the need for greater understanding of how to apply new information about migraine pathophysiology to specific patients and potential treatments.
  • Review data on the effectiveness and safety of mAbs in the treatment of migraine and learn how results in key sub-populations can help them predict which patients are likely to respond to treatment with CGRP mAbs.
