More information

  • Usage

    Aimovig (erenumab) is a medication used in the preventative treatment of migraines.

Produced from Chinese hamster ovary cells, erenumab-aooe is a product of recombinant DNA processes. Specifically, erenumab targets and a has a high affinity for binding to special receptors known as calcitonin gene-related peptide receptors (CGRPR). Calcitonin gene-related peptides are thought to be involved with the initiation process of migraines and Aimovig works to reduce their effects by blocking their receptors. Aimovig (erenumab) is not thought to interact with sumatriptan. Aimovig was was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2018.
