Rigmor Hojland Jensen, MD, from University of Copenhagen, Glostrup, Denmark, discusses the unmet needs of patients with cluster headache and how treatment options might be developed to better meet those needs. Current treatments for cluster headache such as oxygen inhalation are expensive and impractical, with many countries not subsidising oxygen cylinder purchase for patients with acute cluster headache. Triptan injections and nasal sprays are another effective treatment but are not readily available in all countries. The ideal treatment for cluster headache should be preventative, practical, and specific, with many currently available drugs outdated and carrying with them negative side-effects. This interview took place at the World Congress of Neurology (WCN) 2023 in Montreal, Canada.
