Multiple Abstracts Highlighting Non-Invasive Vagus Nerve Stimulation (nVNS) to be Presented at the American Headache Society’s 61st Annual Scientific Meeting

BASKING RIDGE, N.J., July 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- electroCore, Inc. ( ECOR ), a global commercial-stage bioelectronic medicine company, today announced data presentations focused on non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation (nVNS) to be presented at the American Headache Society’s 61 st Annual Scientific Meeting (AHS) to be held on July 11 – July 14, 2019 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Multiple abstracts focused on both the basic science and clinical efficacy of nVNS in migraine, cluster headache (CH) and post-traumatic headache (PTH) will be presented throughout the course of the meeting. Highlights of data include support for nVNS for the prevention of migraine, further data on the change in critical neurotransmitter levels and the ability of nVNS to inhibit cortical spreading depression, and the rationale and design for an upcoming study in post-traumatic headache.

“The extensive scientific and clinical data being presented at this year’s AHS highlight our commitment to understanding the mechanism of nVNS and supporting its current and future potential role in the treatment of headache, pain and other neurologic conditions,” said Dr. Tony Fiorino, chief medical officer of electroCore.
