Migraines are a very common condition for people across the UK, and the world. In fact, one billion people suffer from migraines, with six million of those individuals in the UK alone.

Migraines can be debilitating and affect the quality of life for many sufferers. Although medication is currently available to help manage the condition, they are not suitable for everyone and not always effective.

Some people are affected more severely than others, suffering a migraine attack several times a week, and with some individuals experiencing a migraine a few times a year. One in five women suffer from migraines, compared to one in 15 for men.

If you would like to find out more and would like to participate in this vital clinical trials, you’ll be contributing to the development of ground-breaking medications for the prevention of migraines, potentially helping thousands, if not millions, of people in the future.

Frequently asked questions

I am interested in taking part in a clinical trial, what are the next steps?

To begin with, there will be an initial discussion with a member of the Panthera Clinic team who will ask you about your medical history and regular medications, to identify if any of our current clinical trials may be suitable for you. If we do not have anything for you at this time, with your permission we will keep your details on file and get in touch as and when a suitable clinical trial becomes available.

How long will a clinical trial last?

The length of a clinical trial is different each time.  If there is a clinical trial which may be suitable for you, you will be provided with an Information sheet that tells you everything you will need to know, which includes information about how long the particular trial will last before you decide whether to take part. This will also tell you the number of times you will be asked to attend the clinic and what is involved at each clinic visit.

Will I be reimbursed for my time?

You may be reimbursed for travel costs within reason. All the information regarding payments will be noted in the study information sheet and discussed with you prior to making any commitments or attending for your first appointment.

What if I change my mind?

Participation in a clinical trial is entirely voluntary. If for any reason you are no longer able to commit to taking part, you can stop at any time. All you will need to do is inform the clinic you attend of your decision. You may need to attend the clinic for a final visit, this will be discussed with you when you consent to take part in the clinical trial.
