Mechanism of action

NXN-188 is a first-in-class, dual-action, small molecule that is being developed for the treatment of acute migraine and which incorporates both 5-HT agonism (the mechanism of action of triptans, the current standard of care in migraine therapy) and nNOS inhibition. NOS is a validated target for migraine therapy as migraine models indicate that nNOS inhibition can relieve pain. Additionally, nitric oxide induces migraines in migraineurs, while the inhibition of NOS has been demonstrated to relieve migraine pain.
