About Migraines

Migraines are much more that a headache, they're usually recurring, painful episodes of throbbing pain and pulsing in the head, usually localized on one side. The pain of a migraine can be so intense that it can cause light and sound sensitivity, nausea and vomiting.

Around 1 in every 7 people suffer from episodic and chronic migraines, that is about 14% of the population.2 

Some people may experience a warning symptom also known as an aura before the pain of a migraine is about to begin. These typically last about 20 minutes to an hour, causing symptoms such as:

  • Vision loss
  • Vision phenomena (seeing shapes, bright spots, or light flashes)
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Weakness or numbness
  • Hearing sounds/music

Although migraines are not fully understood, it appears that environment and genetics may play a role. Migraine pain is caused by faulty signals from the brain interacting with blood vessels and surrounding nerves.3

Many people who experience migraines can identify their triggers and are able to steer clear of them. Common triggers can be:

  • Food
  • Caffeine
  • Sleep changes
  • Stress
  • Medication
  • Hormonal changes
  • Weather changes

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a clinical research study?

A clinical research study (also called a clinical trial) is a medical study that helps to answer important questions about an investigational drug – these may include how well an investigational study drug works for a certain condition. All medications must be tested in clinical research studies before they can be approved and prescribed to patients.

Participation in the Migraine Studies will involve visits to a study clinic near your home.

Those who qualify will receive either the investigational drug or a placebo, as well as all call and study-related medical exams and laboratory tests, all at no cost. Compensation for travel may also be available.

In the Migraine Studies, participants will be randomly assigned to a study group. You will receive either the investigational drug or a placebo, on the assigned study group. Neither you nor the study team will know which study group you are in, but in the case of an emergency, the study doctor can quickly find out.

Volunteers who qualify to take part in the study may receive compensation for study-related travel. Please discuss this with the study team when they contact you.

There is no cost to participate in the Migraine Studies. If you qualify, all study-related visits, tests, care, and study drug will be provided at no cost.

If you decide to take part, you will receive study-related care throughout the study from a team of experienced doctors and nurses.

The research team will be able to explain more about what the Migraine Studies will involve, and it is up to you to decide if you want to take part. Participation in this study is voluntary. Whether or not you decide to participate in this study will not affect your current or future relationships with your doctors. If you decide to participate, you are free to withdraw at any time without affecting those relationships or the care you receive.

We match you to a study clinic within a close travel distance from your home. If we are not running the study in your area currently, with your permission, we will keep you in our database and reach out once a study clinic in your area becomes available. If at any time, you decide you no longer want to participate in the study, you can opt-out and we will delete your information.
