In this randomized, double-blind, crossover clinical trial, adult patients treated two migraine attacks: one with almotriptan 12.5 mg and the other with ergotamine 2 mg plus caffeine 200 mg. Treatment with almotriptan was associated with a significantly greater proportion of patients achieving 2-h pain free (20.9% vs. 13.7%; P < 0.05) and 2-h pain relief(More)
OBJECTIVE To perform an economic evaluation of migraine attack treatment comparing standard doses of existing triptans in 2003, and using different outcome measurements of anti-migraine effectiveness. METHODS A cost-effectiveness analysis was performed from the National Health System perspective, using 2003 prices, comparing almotriptan 12.5 mg,(More)
BACKGROUND Almotriptan, the most recent drug of the triptan family, has shown good efficacy and tolerability profile in clinical trials. OBJECTIVE To assess almotriptan's tolerability and effectiveness in the setting of routine clinical practice.

OBJECTIVE This study evaluates the cost-effectiveness of 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA, Gliolan®) in patients undergoing surgery for malignant glioma, in standard clinical practice conditions in Spain. MATERIAL AND METHODS Cost-effectiveness ratios were determined in terms of incremental cost per complete resection (CR) and incremental cost per additional(More)
INTRODUCTION Few studies have been carried out on the subject of stratification of medical care for migraines, and even fewer have been conducted with the aim of determining the attitudes adopted by physicians towards their patients when dealing with this issue. Strategia-I and II studies were designed for this purpose. SUBJECTS AND METHODS The sample(More)
