Cluster Headache and Other Trigeminal Autonomic Cephalalgias.

Authors:
Brian E McGeeney

Semin Neurol 2018 Dec 6;38(6):603-607. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Department of Neurology, Boston University School of Medicine, Boston, Massachusetts.

The trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias are a group of distinct primary headache disorders that share common characteristics of strict unilateral headache often accompanied by unilateral cranial autonomic features. Cluster headache is the most well-known example, but other than neurologists, practitioners often have limited familiarity with these disorders and treatment options. Delays in diagnosis are typical and treatment options remain suboptimal, associated with limited scientific research into these brain disorders. Read More

Authors:
Sheridan M Hoy

Drugs 2018 Nov;78(17):1829-1834

Springer, Private Bag 65901, Mairangi Bay, Auckland, 0754, New Zealand.

Fremanezumab-vfrm (hereafter referred to as fremanezumab) [AJOVY™] is a fully humanized monoclonal antibody (IgG2Δa) developed by Teva Pharmaceuticals to selectively target calcitonin gene-related peptide (a vasodilatory neuropeptide involved in the pathophysiology of migraine). Its use has been associated with significant reductions in migraine frequency, the requirement for acute headache medication use and headache-related disability compared with placebo in multinational, phase III studies, and in September 2018 fremanezumab was approved by the US FDA for the preventive treatment of migraine in adults. A regulatory assessment for fremanezumab as a preventive treatment of migraine in adults is underway in the EU. Read More

[EXPRESS] Pain related white matter tract abnormalities in MTBI patients with headache.

Mol Pain 2018 Oct 16:1744806918810297. Epub 2018 Oct 16.

University of California, San Diego, School of Medicine.

The occurrence of debilitating chronic persistent (24/7) headache after mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) represents a central neuropathic pain state. Previous studies suggest that this chronic headache (HA) state can be attributed to altered supraspinal modulatory functional connectivity in both resting and evoked pain states. Abnormalities in the myelin sheaths along the supraspinal Superior Longitudinal Fasciculus (SLF) and Anterior Thalamic Radiation (ATR) are frequently associated with alteration in pain modulation related to functional connectivity deficit with the prefrontal cortex.

Neurostimulation for the treatment of chronic migraine and cluster headache.

Acta Neurol Scand 2019 Jan 29;139(1):4-17. Epub 2018 Oct 29.

Danish Headache Center, Rigshospital-Glostrup, Glostrup, Denmark.

Small subsets of patients who fail to respond to pharmacological treatment may benefit from alternative treatment methods. In the last decade, neurostimulation is being explored as a potential treatment option for the patients with chronic, severely disabling refractory primary headaches. To alleviate pain, specific nerves and brain areas have been stimulated, and various methods have been explored: deep brain stimulation, occipital nerve stimulation, and sphenopalatine ganglion stimulation are among the more invasive ones, whereas transcranial magnetic stimulation and supraorbital nerve stimulation are noninvasive.

Department of Neurogeriatric Medicine, Headache Medical Center Linz, Ordensklinikum Linz Barmherzige Schwestern, Seilerstaette 4, 4010, Linz, Austria.

Although clinically distinguishable, migraine and cluster headache share prominent features such as unilateral pain, common pharmacological triggers such glyceryl trinitrate, histamine, calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) and response to triptans and neuromodulation. Recent data also suggest efficacy of anti CGRP monoclonal antibodies in both migraine and cluster headache. While exact mechanisms behind both disorders remain to be fully understood, the trigeminovascular system represents one possible common pathophysiological pathway and network of both disorders.

Spotlight on cervical vagus nerve stimulation for the treatment of primary headache disorders: a review.

J Pain Res 2018 27;11:1613-1625. Epub 2018 Aug 27.

Department of Psychiatry, Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms University, Bonn, Germany,

Objectives: Cervical noninvasive vagus nerve stimulation (nVNS) emerged as an adjunctive neuromodulation approach for primary headache disorders with limited responsiveness to pharmacologic and behavioral treatment. This narrative review evaluates the safety and efficacy of invasive and noninvasive peripheral nerve stimulation of the cervical branch of the vagal nerve (afferent properties) for primary headache disorders (episodic/chronic migraine [EM/CM] and cluster headache [ECH/CCH]) and provides a brief summary of the preclinical data on the possible mechanism of action of cervical vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) and trigemino-nociceptive head pain transmission.

Materials And Methods: A systematic search of published data was performed in PubMed for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and prospective cohort clinical studies assessing the efficacy/safety and cost-effectiveness of cervical VNS in primary headache disorders and related preclinical studies.

Primary Headaches.

Dent Clin North Am 2018 Oct 14;62(4):611-628. Epub 2018 Aug 14.

Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, 1 Kneeland Street, Suite 601, Boston, MA 02111, USA.

The primary headaches are composed of multiple entities that cause episodic and chronic head pain in the absence of an underlying pathologic process, disease, or traumatic injury. The most common of these are migraine, tension-type headache, and the trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias. This article reviews the clinical presentation, pathophysiology, and treatment of each to help in differential diagnosis. Read More

Anodal frontal tDCS for chronic cluster headache treatment: a proof-of-concept trial targeting the anterior cingulate cortex and searching for nociceptive correlates.

J Headache Pain 2018 Aug 20;19(1):72. Epub 2018 Aug 20.

Headache Research Unit, University Department of Neurology CHR, CHU de Liège, Boulevard du 12ème de Ligne 1, 4000, Liège, Belgium.

Background: Percutaneous occipital nerve stimulation (ONS) is effective in refractory chronic cluster headache (rCCH) patients. Responders to ONS differ from non-responders by greater glucose metabolism in subgenual anterior cingulate cortex (sgACC). We reasoned that transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), a non-invasive approach, might be able to activate this area and thus improve rCCH patients. Read More

Cluster headache: pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment.

J Neurol 2018 Aug 17. Epub 2018 Aug 17.

Faculty of Medicine, University of Belgrade, Belgrade, Serbia.

Cluster headache (CH) is characterized by attacks of severe, strictly unilateral pain that is orbital, supraorbital, temporal, or any combination of these, lasts 15-180 min, and occurs from once every other day to eight times a day. The pain is associated with ipsilateral conjunctival injection, lacrimation, nasal congestion, rhinorrhea, forehead and facial sweating, miosis, ptosis and/or eyelid edema, and/or with restlessness or agitation. The understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms behind CH is far from complete, but CH is considered to be a neurovascular and chronobiologic headache disorder, with a pivotal role played by the central brain mechanisms.
