Genetic liability to migraine is linked to coronary artery disease but not atrial fibrillation


  • Genetic liability to migraine is associated with lower risk of coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction and angina, but not atrial fibrillation.

Why this matters

    These findings further our understanding of the relationship between migraine and vascular health; drugs that reduce migraine liability, such as antibodies targeting calcitonin gene related peptide signaling, could affect cardiovascular risk.
