Are you interested in clinical trials of new Migraine and headache treatments?
You may not realize: Clinical trials aren't just trials of medications, and they aren't just for adults. There are trials of acupuncture, biofeedback, and other complementary therapies. There are also genetic studies to help understand Migraine better. There are also a few studies for children and adolescents.
Clinical trials of medications and other treatments for Migraines, headaches, and other conditions are conducted for a variety of reasons. They gather data to determine if medications and other treatments are effective, if they're safe, what potential side effects they may have. Clinical trials also study particular symptoms, the effects of Migraine and other conditions on the body and various organs, and many other things.
Participating in clinical trials can be one way to help add to the body of medical knowledge and evidence and to try medications and treatments not yet available.
As a regular feature on MyMigraineConnection, we are maintaining a listing of current clinical trials related to Migraine and other headache disorders. There is a link to click for more information on each trial, and the listings have just been updated.
