Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The treatment landscape for migraine has witnessed significant advancements in recent years. Migraine, a complex, prevalent, and highly disabling neurological disorder, is often underdiagnosed and undertreated. In recent years, there have been important advances in the pathophysiology of the disease that have facilitated the development of new drugs for both the symptomatic and preventive treatments. These novel therapies not only expand the range of available treatments but also offer substantial advantages due to their specificity for migraine treatment, increased effectiveness, and improved tolerability.

Presently, clinicians have a more extensive therapeutic arsenal for managing migraine and must carefully select the optimal treatment for each patient from the diverse options available. This thematic Special Issue aims to explore the challenges contributing to the undertreatment of migraine, emphasizing recent therapeutic breakthroughs and underscoring the importance of initiating symptomatic and preventive treatment in the early phases. By providing a practical perspective, it enables clinicians to familiarize themselves with innovative treatments and gain insights into the underlying pathophysiological foundations of therapies currently in development.
