Can calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) and pentraxin-3 (PTX-3) be useful in diagnosing acute migraine attack?



Even if migraine is not fatal, it is a common and challenging disease with adverse effects on individuals' lives. The lack of objective diagnostic tools causes delays in diagnosis and treatment initiation. The primary aim of this study is to reveal the diagnostic value of Calcitonin Gene-Related Peptide (CGRP) and Pentraxin-3 (PTX-3) in acute migraine. To this aim, we compared the serum CGRP and PTX-3 levels of migraine patients with acute attacks to those in healthy individuals.
