This study was conducted between January 1, 2019, and July 25, 2019, at the neurology and biochemistry clinics of two different tertiary hospitals simultaneously. Overall, 50 RRMS patients with migraine, 50 RRMS patients without migraine, and 50 healthy volunteers were included in the study. The participants’ vitamin D, VITDBP, VITDR, hs-CRP, SOD, CAT, GSH-Px, TAS, TOS, and OSI values were measured.ResultsThe vitamin D and VITDR values of the RRMS patients with migraine were lower than those of the RRMS patients without migraine (respectively, p = 0.014, p

Chimeric Antigen Receptor T-cell (CAR-T) Immunotherapy was first approved by the FDA in October 2017 for adult patients with relapsed or refractory large B-cell lymphoma after two or more lines of systemic therapy. CAR-T immunotherapy uses a patient's own T cells and modifies them in a laboratory to recognize and kill the patient's cancer.Cytokine release syndrome is a known serious adverse event after CAR-T infusion which results in symptoms including fever, nausea, headache, and hypotension. Tocilizumab is an anti-IL-6 receptor antagonist approved for the treatment of CRS in CAR-T patients.
