Pilot study: Migraine can be treated without medicine
By slightly changing the body's own molecules using a small inhaler, certain migraine patients can either cut down on medication or do without it completely. This is shown by a pilot study which has been published in the scientific journal Cephalalgia.

Migraine mouse provides insight into neurobiology of devastating headaches
Researchers created a mouse model to examine a subtype of migraine called familial hemiplegic migraine (FHM). Compared to normal mice, the migraine mice showed activation of calcium channels by weaker stimuli with consequent enhanced calcium entry into neurons, increased release of excitatory neurotransmitters, and increased susceptibility to cortical spreading depression (CSD). The FHM migraine mouse may be used to test new treatments to prevent migraine by reducing hyperexcitability and preventing CSD. (2004-03-03)
