ABSTRACT: Although clinically distinguishable, migraine and cluster headache share prominent features such as unilateral pain, common pharmacological triggers such glyceryl trinitrate, histamine, calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) and response to triptans and neuromodulation. Recent data also suggest efficacy of anti CGRP monoclonal antibodies in both migraine and cluster headache. While exact mechanisms behind both disorders remain to be fully understood, the trigeminovascular system represents one possible common pathophysiological pathway and network of both disorders. Here, we review past and current literature shedding light on similarities and differences in phenotype, heritability, pathophysiology, imaging findings and treatment options of migraine and cluster headache. A continued focus on their shared pathophysiological pathways may be important in paving future treatment avenues that could benefit both migraine and cluster headache patients.

ABSTRACT: The trigeminovascular system plays a key role in the pathophysiology of migraine. The activation of the trigeminovascular system causes release of various neurotransmitters and neuropeptides, including serotonin and calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), which modulate pain transmission and vascular tone. Thirty years after discovery of agonists for serotonin 5-HT

4 Article Antiepileptic drugs in migraine and epilepsy: Who is at increased risk of adverse events? 2018

Romoli, Michele / Costa, Cinzia / Siliquini, Sabrina / Corbelli, Ilenia / Eusebi, Paolo / Bedetti, Chiara / Caproni, Stefano / Cupini, Letizia Maria / Calabresi, Paolo / Sarchielli, Paola. ·1 Neurology Clinic, University Hospital of Perugia, Italy. · 2 Regional Health Authority of Umbria, Perugia, Italy. · 3 Neurology Division, Sant'Eugenio Hospital, Rome, Italy. ·Cephalalgia · Pubmed #27956547.

ABSTRACT: Background The impact of adverse events (AEs) of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) have an impact on compliance and dropouts. We compared tolerability of AEs of AEDs among patients with migraine, epilepsy, or both. Methods Overall, 335 patients (epilepsy (n = 142), migraine (n = 131), and both (n = 62)), were evaluated with the Liverpool Adverse Events Profile (LAEP) to assess the magnitude, profile and occurrence rate of the AEs of valproate, topiramate, and lamotrigine. Results AEs were significantly more common with topiramate treatment (71.0%) and among migraineurs (69.5%), the latter being more prone to discontinue AEDs (46.6%). The profile of AEs with topiramate and valproate differed among groups. Moreover, treatment with both topiramate and valproate was associated, for all groups, with a worse tolerability profile compared to lamotrigine. Conclusion Our data suggest a specific drug and disease AE profile of AEDs. Specifically, migraineurs are the most affected by AEs, even though they receive very low dosages of AEDs. This finding might be considered a clinical implication of central sensitization mechanisms. Both the profile and tolerability of AEs, highly influencing quality of life, depended on the underlying conditions, and deeply impacted on treatment dropout. Therefore, before starting, switching or stopping AED treatment, all options need to be considered.

5 Article Stopping Onabotulinum Treatment after the First Two Cycles Might Not Be Justified: Results of a Real-life Monocentric Prospective Study in Chronic Migraine. 2017

ABSTRACT: Introduction: Onabotulinum toxin A (OnabotA) cyclic treatment is approved for the prophylactic treatment of chronic migraine (CM), a highly disabling disorder. Although treatment response varies among patients, current guidelines suggest to stop treatment after cycle 2 if no response is achieved. This prospective study aimed to define, in real-life setting, the evolution of the response to OnabotA over five cycles of treatment among patients non-responding to cycle 1. The results of this study might help in decision-making, in particular whether prosecuting OnabotA further or not, when facing a patient not responding to cycle 1. Methods: Patients failing to respond at cycle 1 were recruited to complete five cycles. Key outcomes were: (i) a ≥50% reduction in headache days, (ii) a ≥50% reduction in total cumulative hours of headache on headache days and (iii) a ≥5-point improvement in Headache Impact Test-6 (HIT-6) scores. Results: Overall, 56 patients were included. Mean age was 45.7 years (female 83.9%). Severe (≥60) HIT-6 score was reported at baseline by 95.8% of patients. Responders (headache days reduction of more than 50%) progressively increased cycle after cycle, doubling from cycle 2 to cycle 5 (from 27 to 48%). In addition, patients regressed from CM to episodic migraine moving on with each cycle, with 78% of them reaching less than nine migraine days/month after cycle 5. The headache days per month decreased significantly from cycle 1 to cycle 5 (overall from 23.3 ± 5.7 to 9.2 ± 3.6; Conclusion: The positive effect of OnabotA treatment spreads over the course of the treatment and might also manifest late in treatment course among patients with no benefit after the first two cycles. Thus, the results of this real-life study suggest to extend OnabotA treatment further, beyond cycle 2, to avoid premature withdrawal in patients who would have become responders at cycle 3, 4, or 5.
