  • Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is a neuropeptide of importance in migraine pathogenesis. Its central role in migraine was proven pharmacologically by the development of CGRP receptor antagonists. Monoclonal antibodies targeting CGRP or its receptor are effective in the preventive treatment of episodic and chronic migraine and are considered potential breakthroughs in their treatment. Fremanezumab (previously known as TEV-48125, LBR-101, or RN-307) is a humanized IgG2a monoclonal… CONTINUE READING
