Research and Markets: Global Ergot Alkaloids (Migraine) Report 2014


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Ergot Alkaloids (Migraine) – Forecast and Market Analysis to 2023″ report to their offering.

The Ergot Alkaloids were the very first anti-migraine-specific therapy class to reach the market. The first pure ergot alkaloid was isolated in 1920, but only in 1925 was ergotamine used to successfully treat a case of severe and intractable migraine via subcutaneous injection (Rothlin, 1955; Stoll, 1965). Over the following decades, ergotamine’s use as a migraine treatment was investigated by various researchers and its potent vasoconstriction properties reinforced the belief that migraine had a vascular origin.
