What is Migraine?

Migraine, the second most incapacitating disease in the world, is a complex neurological condition that is often poorly understood. It requires crisis treatment to stop each episode, as well as preventive treatment (prophylaxis). Currently, the world depends on non-specific drugs such as antiepileptics, beta-blockers and antidepressants. Though the pathology of migraine remains mysterious, there is a real expectation on the part of patients for new disease-modifying treatments that has fewer side-effects and, if possible, a more natural approach.
