CONy 2022 | Current and future work on migraine pathophysiology research

Bojana Žvan, MD, PhD, University Medical Center Ljubljana, Ljubljana, Slovenia, discusses current and future work on migraine research. There is an emphasis on the need for personalized treatment for patients with migraine; every patient is different and thus should be treated on an induvial basis. From a clinical perspective, patients should have access to telemedicine – with a dedicated nurse, physiotherapist, and psychologist. From a research perspective, Prof. Žvan discusses current studies addressing the pathophysiology of migraines, including the effect of exogenous CGRP on inducing hemodynamic changes in migraine with and without aura. Furthermore, Prof. Žvan mentions a study investigating the impact of CGRPs on the posterior circulation of patients and healthy controls and an additional study investigating the inducement of headaches via exogenous CGRPs. This interview took place at the 2022 World Congress on Controversies in Neurology (CONy) meeting.
