Discovering that calcitonin-related peptide (CGRP) plays a key role in migraine pathophysiology has allowed us to develop new approaches for acute and preventive treatment. Monoclonal antibodies against CGRP and its receptor offer considerable improvements over existing drugs for migraine prevention. The serotonin 1F (5-HT 1F) receptor agonist lasmiditan can across the blood-brain barrier and act on peripheral and central nervous system sites without vasoconstriction by activating 5-HT. Migraine treatment has reached a new era with the development of drugs by translating basic research findings from the bench to the bedside.
