Emerging Strategies for Migraine Therapy
Here’s a quick overview of what’s new-and what may be coming-in preventive treatments strategies for migraine.
Migraine and Ischemic Stroke: Atherosclerosis Link?
Does cerebrovascular atherosclerosis explain the connection between migraine and vascular diseases?
Sports-Related Concussion: Barriers to Reporting

CGRP-Targeting Erenumab for Chronic Migraine
For several decades, studies have suggested a role for CGRP in migraine, and that targeting the CGRP pathway might help to prevent migraine.
Migraine Risk by Body Composition
Researchers examined two possible risk factors for migraine that potentially can be modified – having obesity and being underweight.
Migraine, Ischemic Stroke in Young Patients
Is there a common biological pathway underlying ischemic stroke and migraine in young patients?
Acupuncture for Migraine: a Feasible Option?
Studies have shown that true acupuncture is more effective than sham acupuncture in reducing migraine, but it treatment feasible?
Migraine Treatment: Medication Overuse Headache
A review examined risk of medication overuse headache across classes of acute migraine treatments.
Sphenopalatine Ganglion Block: Pediatric Migraine
SPG is known to be an effective treatment among adults with migraine, but little is known about its use in the pediatric population.
Neuromodulation to Treat Cluster Headaches
Researchers tested the efficacy of neuromodulation of the sphenopalatine ganglion to treat patients with drug-refractory cluster headaches.
Pediatric Migraine: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive behavioral therapy to treat migraine in children and adolescents proved beneficial, but were the results long-lasting?
Manual Therapy Intervention for Migraine
A trial of chiropractic spinal manipulative therapy (CSMT) to treat migraine successfully blinded its patients to the trial intervention.
Migraine History Impacts Ischemic Stroke Risk
Perioperative stroke is associated with a significantly increased risk for mortality and long-term morbidities. What role does migraine history play?
Rosacea May Increase Migraine Risk
Research has linked rosacea with other neurologic conditions such as Parkinson disease and MS, but an association with migraine has been unclear.
Efficacy of Pediatric Migraine Drugs
There is no FDA-approved drug for pediatric migraine in children aged younger than 12, so treatment is consensus-based rather than evidence-based.
Do Migraine Patients Reach Sustained Pain Relief?
Achieving pain freedom at 2 hours and sustained pain response at 24 hours are important outcomes of any acute migraine therapy.
Nerve Blocks for Headaches & Migraine
Nerve blocks are often used in adults and children to treat headaches, but few data look at practice patterns in a pediatric setting.
Evaluation of PACAP Levels in Chronic Migraine
Researchers evaluated whether blood levels of PACAP could serve as a biomarker for parasympathetic activation in migraine headaches.
Triptan Use in Adults with Migraine and CV Risk Factors
Triptans are contraindicated with certain CV risk factors, however, there are few data looking at the rate of triptans use among this population.
Does Caffeine Impact Migraine Treatment?
A small study of 108 patients evaluated if caffeine cessation for 2 weeks or longer could affect outcomes of acute migraine treatment.
Headache, Migraine Risk with TBI
A study of U.S. Armed Forces asks if severity of traumatic brain injury impacts the likelihood of developing headache or migraine.
Does Migraine in Women Lead to Higher CV Risk?
Data from the Nurses’ Health Study II evaluated the risk of cardiovascular disease, myocardial infarction, and stroke in women with migraine.
Noninvasive Vagus Nerve Stimulation for Migraine
Was longer treatment duration with noninvasive vagus nerve stimulation associated with a clinically significant reduction in headache days?
