PRINCETON, N.J., June 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Promius Pharma LLC announced today that it is presenting 2 posters from the 2017 Migraine in America Symptoms and Treatment (MAST) Study at the 59th Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Headache Society in Boston, MA, 2017.
- 2017 Migraine in America Symptoms and Treatment (MAST) Study: Methods and Initial Findings for Unmet Treatment Needs
- Symptom Bothersomeness in Migraine: Results from 2017 Migraine in America Symptoms and Treatment (MAST) Study
With data collected from over 15,000 migraine sufferers, the presentations represent the first in a series of 3 studies that will enhance current knowledge of symptoms and treatment patterns in patients. The second and third studies will provide follow-up at 6 and 12 months, respectively.
Promius Pharma initiated MAST to address gaps in knowledge due to changing demographics and treatment options in the US migraine community. MAST seeks to shed light on the current state of migraine symptom characteristics, including the most bothersome migraine symptoms and how pain interferes with daily functioning. MAST will also illustrate the state of migraine treatment, including medication use and overuse, patterns of treatment delays, and barriers to access.
"The MAST study provides insights into the journey of patients suffering with migraine, especially into their disease burden and treatment experiences. Insights from the MAST study will help us better understand these gaps and help develop products and services to improve patient care," said Anil Namboodiripad, PhD, Senior Vice President, Proprietary Products and President, Promius Pharma.
