Este trabajo contempla descubrimientos recientes sobre la fisiopatogenia de la migraña, enfocándose a la combinación de eventos que se suceden en secuencia para originar la migraña. Se revisaron datos actuales sobre sustancia P, péptido intestinal vasoactivo, histamina, receptores H1, H3 y agonista de los receptores H3; todos ellos neuromoduladores que se encuentran en íntima relación con la migraña. Se expone el tratamiento que se recomienda para migraña y el motivo del fracaso de la terapéutica actual, que con dificultad alcanza el 70% de eficacia. Se contempla el futuro del tratamiento para migraña el cual deberá estar dirigido hacia la búsqueda de fármacos que interaccionen directamente con estos neuromoduladores para poder ofrecer a los pacientes con migraña, medicamentos con mejor eficacia y mínimos efectos indeseables.

Palabras clave: Migraña, fisiopatogenia, histamina, sustancia P.
