|Official Title:||Neuropeptides in the Humane Intra- og Extracerebral Circulation - in Relation to Sumatriptan in Healthy Volunteers.|
- Blood concentration of vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP),
- calcitonin gene-related protein (CGRP), pituitary adenylate cyclase
- activating peptide (PACAP,) and the prostanoids
- 6-keto-PGF1α, PGE2, PGD2 and PGF2α, sampled from different
- venous catheters.

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.
