re Royes LF Abstract Post-traumatic headache (PTH) is a condition that frequently affects individuals after traumatic brain injury (TBI). Inflammation is one of the major causes of this disability. However, little is known about the trigger for, and endurance of, this painful process. Thus, the involvement of fibers containing the transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) channels on the PTH and inflammation after TBI through neonatal treatment with capsaicin are investigated. Fluid percussion injury (FPI) in adult male Wistar rats caused periorbital allodynia in one, three and seven days after injury, and ...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe purpose of this review is to examine the multitude of factors which may impact learning and academic performance in patients with pediatric migraine.Recent FindingsA range of associations of varying degree were noted between pediatric migraine and conditions such as ADHD, learning disabilities, sleep disorders, and psychiatric comorbidities with regard to headache pain and school functioning. Recent literature highlights the importance of sleep in relation to headache, mood disorders, and learning in youth and the emerging role of perfectionism.SummaryChildren with migraine remain at risk for s...

ConclusionsFindings were not very different from those reported in Turkey and Austria, but with more TTH. Headache has, therefore, again been shown to be common in children and adolescents, and UdH confirmed as a headache type that must be recognised and included in accounts of headache in these age groups.

AbstractMigraine is a leading cause of disability worldwide, but it is still underdiagnosed and undertreated. Research on the pathophysiology of this neurological disease led to the discovery that calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is a key neuropeptide involved in pain signaling during a migraine attack. CGRP-mediated neuronal sensitization and glutamate-based second- and third-order neuronal signaling may be an important component involved in migraine pain. The activation of several serotonergic receptor subtypes can block the release of CGRP, other neuropeptides, and neurotransmitters, and can relieve the symptoms o...

AbstractBackgrounderenumab was safe and effective in clinical trials for the prevention of migraine. However, real-life data are still lacking. Here we report the clinical experience from an Italian real-world setting using erenumab in patients with chronic migraine experiencing previous unsuccessful preventive treatments.MethodsSeventy patients with chronic migraine and failure to ≥4 migraine preventive medication classes initially received monthly erenumab 70 mg s.c. Patients without a clinically meaningful improvement, considered as a >  30% reduction in headache days per month, after &...

In this study we aimed to use the Disability Adjust Life Years (DALY) and spatial indicators as tools to measure the impact of human neurocysticercosis in Ecuador between 2013 and 2017. MethodsMortality, morbidity and spatial data from the national agency of statistics were used to estimate the burden of disease of NCC during a five-year period (2013 –2017). NCC cases and its two main sequelae, epilepsy and migraine headache, were stratified by sex and age group to calculate the DALY associated to NCC using the DALY package in R. SATSCAN software was used to assess spatial clusters of NCC and its possible neurologica...
