Study Rationale:

It is estimated that fewer than half of migraine sufferers receive optimal therapy due to side effects. Poorly controlled migraines cause a heavy burden on many levels (financial, quality of life, missed time from work, etc.). An acute migraine headache is often associated with nausea and vomiting. Some medications to treat an acute migraine can make this worse. A new research study is being conducted to test the safety and effectiveness of an investigational medication injected only once a month under the skin to prevent migraines.
