[Express] Role of Intraganglionic Transmission in the Trigeminovascular Pathway.

Mol Pain 2019 Feb 20:1744806919836570. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

Indiana University School of Medicine.

Migraine is triggered by poor air quality and odors through unknown mechanisms. Activation of the trigeminovascular pathway by environmental irritants may occur via activation of TRPA1 receptors on nasal trigeminal neurons, but how that results in peripheral and central sensitization is unclear. The anatomy of the trigeminal ganglion suggests that noxious nasal stimuli are not being transduced to the meninges by axon reflex but likely through intraganglionic transmission. Read More

Focal visual status epilepticus.

Epileptic Disord 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Department for Clinical Neurophysiology, University Medical Center Göttingen, Göttingen, Germany.

Epileptic visual auras are elementary to complex and sometimes occur as colourful visual phenomena located close to or within the central part of the contralateral hemi-field. They typically last from seconds to a few minutes, which discriminates them from the usually longer-lasting visual auras (5-30 minutes) of patients suffering from migraine. We present an adult patient with occipital lobe epilepsy whose visual aura under epilepsy monitoring lasted for more than 30 minutes with almost no propagation, demonstrating a rare, but remarkable, sustained local epileptic network activity associated with resection of an occipital arterio-venous malformation.

Background: Headache is the most common symptom of idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) and may not resolve with intracranial pressure-lowering treatments. Many patients with IIH have a pre-existing history of migraine. Approximately two-thirds of patients with IIH continue to experience headaches after the other manifestations of the disorder resolve.

Retinal vascular density evaluation of migraine patients with and without aura and association with white matter hyperintensities.

Acta Neurol Belg 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Ophthalmology, Faculty of Medicine, Konya Research Hospital, Başkent University, 42000, Konya, Turkey.

Underlying pathophysiological mechanism of migraine is not all clear; however, recent reports suggested that neurovascular system is involved. We aimed to evaluate the retinal vessel densities of migraine patients with and without aura and the associations with white matter hyperintensities (WMH), using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). We recruited 28 migraine with aura (MWA) patients, 26 migraine without aura (MWO) and age and sex-matched 34 healthy controls in our study. Read More

Changes in grey matter volume and functional connectivity in cluster headache versus migraine.

Brain Imaging Behav 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Headache Centre, Careggi University Hospital, Department of Health Sciences, University of Florence, Florence, Italy.

Cluster headache (CH) shows a more severe clinical picture than migraine (Mig). We tested whether brain changes can explain such difference. Multimodal MRI was acquired in attack-free patients with CH (n = 12), Mig (n = 13) and in normal controls (NC, n = 13). Read More

Migraine and increased risk of developing open angle glaucoma: a population-based cohort study.

BMC Ophthalmol 2019 Feb 13;19(1):50. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Department of Ophthalmology, National Taiwan University Hospital, Hsin-Chu Branch, Hsin-Chu, Taiwan.

Background: Migraine is linked to endothelial dysfunction and is considered to be a systemic vasculopathy. Interestingly, systemic vascular diseases also occur in glaucoma patients and are considered to be vascular risk factors. Whether migraine is simply a concomitant condition in glaucoma patients or a risk factor per se for glaucoma remains unknown. Read More

Development and validation of the ID-EC - the ITALIAN version of the identify chronic migraine.

J Headache Pain 2019 Feb 13;20(1):15. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Department of Clinical and Molecular Medicine, Regional Referral Headache Centre, Sant'Andrea Hospital, Sapienza University, Rome, Italy.

Background: Case-finding tools, such as the Identify Chronic Migraine (ID-CM) questionnaire, can improve detection of CM and alleviate its significant societal burden. We aimed to develop and validate the Italian version of the ID-CM (ID-EC) in paper and as a smart app version in a headache clinic-based setting.

Methods: The study investigators translated and adapted to the Italian language the original ID-CM questionnaire (ID-EC) and further implemented it as a smart app. Read More

The Neuromodulatory Effects of ω-3 Fatty Acids and Nano-Curcumin on the COX-2/ iNOS Network in Migraines: A Clinical Trial Study from Gene Expression to Clinical Symptoms.

Endocr Metab Immune Disord Drug Targets 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Department of Cellular and Molecular Nutrition, School of Nutritional Sciences and Dietetics, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran. Iran.

Background: Migraine is a common neuroinflammatory disorder characterized by recurrent attacks of pain. Human and experimental models of migraine studies have demonstrated the role played by COX-2/ iNOS in migraine's neuroinflammatory pathogenesis. COX-2 and iNOS are closely linked and both contribute to inflammation and neurogenic pain in the central nervous system. Read More

Striatal spreading depolarization: Possible implication in levodopa-induced dyskinetic-like behavior.

Mov Disord 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Neurological Clinic, Department of Medicine, Hospital Santa Maria della Misericordia, University of Perugia, Perugia, Italy.

Objective: Spreading depolarization (SD) is a transient self-propagating wave of neuronal and glial depolarization coupled with large membrane ionic changes and a subsequent depression of neuronal activity. Spreading depolarization in the cortex is implicated in migraine, stroke, and epilepsy. Conversely, spreading depolarization in the striatum, a brain structure deeply involved in motor control and in Parkinson's disease (PD) pathophysiology, has been poorly investigated. Read More

Type II Renal Tubular Acidosis Secondary to Topiramate: A Review.

Cureus 2018 Nov 26;10(11):e3635. Epub 2018 Nov 26.

Department of Nephrology, Maimonides Medical Center, New York, USA.

Topiramate (TMP) is a broad-spectrum anticonvulsant drug used to treat a wide variety of seizure disorders, for migraine prophylaxis, and for many other indications. An important side effect of TMP is metabolic acidosis, which is mediated by renal tubular defects. TMP inhibits carbonic anhydrase, an enzyme that is necessary for acid handling in the proximal renal tubule. Read More
