Treatment of Chronic Migraine Headaches.

A combination of dexamethasone, lidocaine and thiamine (pat.), may bring changes in the pattern of sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve signaling at the level vasa nervorum. These changes may down-regulate the hyperexcitable sympathetic signals at the level of adventitia and consequently the medial layer of vasa nervorum and providing long term ...


CGRP-induced Migraine Attacks in Patients Who Have Tried Anti-CGRP Monoclonal Antibody Treatment

Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) plays a role in migraine pathophysiology. Infusions of CGRP can trigger migraine-like attacks in migraine patients and antibodies against CGRP or the CGRP receptor significantly reduces the number of migraine days per month when administered regularly. Some patients however, do not experience migraine attack after CGRP ...

Phase N/A

Ultrasound Greater Occipital Nerve Block at C2 Level Compared to Landmark-based Greater Occipital Nerve Block

Hypothesis: A novel ultrasound-guided greater occipital nerve (GON) block at the level of C2 will result in significantly lower pain scores after 4 weeks when compared with a traditional landmark-guided approach at the superior nuchal line. The greater occipital nerve (GON) has been implicated in several conditions that prompt referral ...

Phase N/A

Efficacy and Safety of Tx360 Transnasal Sphenopalatine Ganglion Block in the Treatment of Chronic Migraine

This is a phase III, multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, prospective, clinical trial examining the outcomes of subjects with chronic migraine headache who are treated with 0.3cc of 0.5% bupivacaine bilaterally vs 0.3cc of sterile water bilaterally, each delivered to the mucosal surface of the SPG through each nare with the ...


The Effect of Sumatriptan and Placebo Injection on Cilostazol Induced Headache

There remains a great need for more effective anti-migraine drugs with fewer side effects. Human experimental models are valuable in early phase development of new anti-migraine drugs but useful models have not yet been developed. The investigators' group has shown that Cilostazol, a phosphodiesterase inhibitor induce headache/migraine in both healthy ...

Phase N/A

RCT of Non-Invasive Vagus Nerve Stimulation (nVNS) With gammaCore for the Acute Treatment of Migraine Attacks

Period 1: 4-week observational run-in period; no stimulation treatment. Subjects use standard of care (SoC) medication to treat their migraine attacks, according to their individual prescriptions. Period 2: 4-week randomized/controlled period. After the run-in period, subjects are randomized (1:1) to receive either an nVNS device or a sham device to ...

Phase N/A

Study of Low-level Laser Therapy in the Acute Treatment of Migraine

This is a double blinded, two arm study, comprising a sham laser and a treatment laser. The sham laser emits approximately 1/1000 the energy of the treatment laser. It is presumed that pain relief from the treatment laser is achieved by exhausting the release of neurotransmitters from the SPG following ...


Acute Stress Response in Migraine Sufferers

Stress and headache are intricately interrelated. Stress is thought to contribute to headache disorder onset in predisposed individuals, trigger or worsen individual headache episodes in those with headache, and exacerbate the progression of a headache disorder. In exacerbating headache disorder progression, stress is believed to be a major factor in ...

Phase N/A

IM Ketorolac vs Cambia for the Acute Treatment of Severe Migraine

The treatment of severe migraine often requires a patient office visit or treatment in the ER or urgent care setting. This is due to the minimal efficacy of PO treatments once migraine is severe, and therefore the need for parenteral treatments. IM Ketorolac is one mainstay of parenteral treatment. There ...


Optimized tDCS for the Treatment of Migraine

A crossover trial to establish an optimized tDCS protocol will be accomplished. Anodal and cathodal tDCS will be applied over the primary motor cortex (C3 - active and contralateral supra-orbital region - reference) and visual cortex (Oz - active and Cz - reference). Dual tDCS (anodal and cathodal - optimized ...
