Dublin, Nov. 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Triptans Products, Pipelines, Players, Patents and Prospects" report to their offering.

Triptans consist of a class of drugs called selective 5-hydroxytryptamine subtype 1 (5-HT1) receptor agonists. Migraine headaches are an established and growing market for patient-friendly drug delivery. Triptans constrict blood vessels in the brain and relieve swelling, a mechanism that is thought to provide palliative relief to migraine patients, but also have other properties that may help treat migraine symptoms.

Worldwide, the highest prevalence of migraine occurs in North America. It is approximately 25 percent less frequent in Europe and Central and South America and approximately 67 percent less frequent in Asia and Africa. Most patients with migraine begin having the headaches in childhood, adolescence or early adulthood.

The market and growth prospects for migraine therapeutics are substantial and have attracted an expanding list of players.
