Other platform presentations include:

  • Predictors of Allodynia in Persons With Migraine: Results from the 2017 MAST Study

“We are very excited to have such a robust representation of our scientific work at 70th AAN Annual Meeting” said Dr. Sagar Munjal, Vice President, Chief Medical Officer at Promius Pharma. “The MAST Study findings on the most bothersome symptoms is an excellent example of identifying key unmet needs in management of migraine. We are hopeful that DFN-02 will help address these unmet needs.”

About the MAST Study

The MAST Study addresses gaps in knowledge due to changing demographics and treatment options in the US migraine community. MAST was designed to shed light on the current state of migraine symptom characteristics, including the most bothersome migraine symptoms and how pain interferes with daily functioning.
