Welcome to the Migraine Knowledge Centre. Migraine is classified by the International Headache Society as one of the four primary headache disorders and has several different treatment options. With no biomarkers or medical tests available, diagnosis of migraine can be a lengthy process, yet receiving the right treatment and care is of paramount importance to patients suffering from the disabling symptoms associated with this neurological condition.
The Migraine Knowledge Centre contains the latest recommendations for all aspects of patient care, including diagnosis, acute and preventive migraine treatment options, as well as insights into the novel treatments currently in development.
