How does EMGALITY work?

EMGALITY is a monoclonal antibody. It blocks a protein in your body called calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) ligand. Your nerves release CGRPs during migraine attacks and cluster headaches. CGRPs cause the blood vessels in your brain to swell, which can lead to pain. When EMGALITY blocks these proteins, it can prevent migraines and ease pain from cluster headaches.
