Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Blood concentration of vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP),
  • calcitonin gene-related protein (CGRP), pituitary adenylate cyclase
  • activating peptide (PACAP,) and the prostanoids

Detailed Description:

The study is meant to give a better understanding of the basic mechanisms behind migraine, and a better understanding of the effects of sumatriptan on the trigemino vascular system.

The endpoints are changes in the plasma values of the neuropeptides vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP), calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) and pituitary adenylate cyclase activating peptide (PACAP) and the prostanoids 6-keto-PGF1α, and PGE2, PGD2 og PGF2α.
