Sumatriptan has been used for the acute treatment of migraine attacks. There are many similarities between migraine and epilepsy and the medications used to treat one of these disorders can effectively be used to treat the other. The purpose of this study was to evaluate and compare the anticonvulsant effects of sumatriptan with sodium valproate in NMRI mice. 62 male NMRI mice were divided into 8 groups. The groups consisted of a saline (control) group, 4 intraperitoneally (ip) administered sumatriptan groups (1, 10, 50, and 100 mg/kg, ip), and 3 sodium valproate groups (50, 150, and 300 mg/kg, ip)...

Migraine is one of the most common diseases in the world, with high economical and subjective burden. Migraine acute therapy is nowadays based on specific and non-specific drugs but up to 40% of episodic migraineurs still have unmet treatment needs and over 35% do not benefit from triptans administration. Serotonin-1F receptors have been identified in trigeminal system and became an ideal target for anti-migraine drug development as potential trigeminal neural inhibitors. Lasmiditan, a novel serotonin1F receptor agonist, showed specific affinity in vitro for the receptor with any vasoconstrictive action and inhibited markers associated with electrical stimulation of trigeminal ganglion in migraine animal models...

BACKGROUND: Patients with medication-overuse headache suffer not only from chronic headache, but often from psychiatric comorbidities, such as anxiety and depression. The mechanisms underlying these comorbidities are unclear, but the amygdala is likely to be involved in their pathogenesis. To investigate the mechanisms underlying the comorbidities we used elevated plus maze and open field tests to assess anxiety-like behavior in rats chronically treated with analgesics. We measured the electrical properties of neurons in the amygdala, and examined the cortical spreading depression (CSD)-evoked expression of Fos in the trigeminal nucleus caudalis (TNC) and amygdala of rats chronically treated with analgesics...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Hepatocellular cancer (HCC) is the sixth most common cancer and liver fibrosis is strongly associated with HCC. Treatment options are limited, and preventive strategies should be developed. An important step in the beginning of liver fibrosis is a strong inflammatory response. 5-HT7 is the last recognized member of the serotonin receptor family and is expressed in both central nerve system and peripheral system and have a lot of functions like learning, memory, smooth muscular relaxation, in the control of circadian rhythms and thermoregulation, pain and migraine, schizophrenia, anxiety, cognitive disturbances, and even inflammation...

In Europe, the one-year prevalence of migraine is 14.9% and migraine is on the top-ten list of leading causes of years lost to disability. Sleep disturbances and irregular daily routines are considered triggers of migraine and these factors are well-known consequences of shift work. We studied the association between treatment-seeking migraine and shift work, categorised as fixed evening work, fixed night work and variable working hours with and without night work in a Danish working population of 5,872 participants...

The complex pathophysiology involved in migraine necessitates the drug treatment to act on several receptors simultaneously. The present investigation was an attempt to discover the unidentified anti-migraine activity of the already marketed drugs. Shared featured pharmacophore modeling was employed for this purpose on six target receptors (β2 adrenoceptor, Dopamine D3, 5HT1B, TRPV1, iGluR5 kainate and CGRP), resulting in the generation of five shared featured pharmacophores, which were further subjected to virtual screening of the ligands obtained from Drugbank database...

Migraine is the most prevalent disabling neurological disorder. The management of patients with migraine has been hampered by lack of effective and well-tolerated acute and preventive therapies. Based on improved insights into the basic mechanisms of migraine, new and targeted treatments are currently undergoing large-scale testing. Among the most promising agents for migraine prevention are humanized antibodies against calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) or the CGRP receptor. If proven effective, these new treatments may emerge to improve the lives of millions of individuals worldwide disabled by migraine...

INTRODUCTION: Migraine headaches are common in children and adolescents. Current pharmacologic treatment options are limited despite the prevalence and debilitating effects of pediatric migraine. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based practice that focuses on the development of coping strategies and cognitive restructuring to alter the pain experience. Till date, no meta-analysis has been done to examine the use of CBT in pediatric migraine. METHODS: Using the keywords (cognitive behavioral therapy OR cognitive behavior therapy OR cognitive behavioral therapy OR cognitive behavior therapy OR CBT) AND (headache OR migraine), a preliminary search on the PubMed and Ovid database yielded 3841 articles published in English between 1 Jan 1980 and 1 May 2016...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: Previous studies suggest that migraine might be associated with female sexual dysfunction (FSD), although this association may be complicated by overweight/obesity. To disentangle relationships of migraine and obesity with FSD, we examined: (1) FSD rates in women who had migraine and obesity with a matched sample of women with obesity who were free of migraine and (2) associations between indices of migraine severity and FSD in a larger sample of participants with migraine and overweight/obesity, controlling for important confounders...

PURPOSE: Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a neurophysiological technique with a long established pedigree of safety, tolerability, and efficacy. Initially TMS was used to study the function of the cerebral cortex, but it has now become a treatment for migraine, one of the most common and debilitating neurological conditions. In this review we discuss the scientific background and development of the technique. We explore its application for the treatment of migraine and ponder the possible mechanisms of action in this most common neurological condition...
