A new generation of drugs that target calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) pathways offers a unique opportunity to explore the relationship between responder rates (RRs) and improvement in patient outcomes. The authors hypothesize a “tipping point” exists for patients with a ≥75% migraine response. They propose higher RRs reported in trials with CGRP inhibitory antibodies deliver not only a quantitative change in monthly headache days, but also a qualitative change in function, for a clinically meaningful subpopulation of patients.
