Understanding the role of AJOVY® in migraine prevention

AJOVY® is a monoclonal antibody that selectively binds to CGRP.1

How AJOVY® works

AJOVY® is a humanised monoclonal antibody, targeting CGRP1

Patients with migraine have increased levels of CGRP, a neuropeptide that presents in both the central and peripheral nervous system.2,3 When CGRP binds to its receptor, a cascade of events result, which contributes to neurogenic inflammation that is associated with migraine pain.2,4 This involves mast cell degranulation, vasodilation, and protein extravasation.5 AJOVY® selectively targets the CGRP ligand, which is believed to block this cascade of events, thereby preventing the activation of the trigeminal system.1,4

CGRP plays an important role in the pathophysiology of migraine.4
