Genetic factors in migraine and chronic tension-type headache
The Journal of Headache and Pain volume 1, pages S157–S164 (2000)
Pathophysiological studies have dominated migraine research for several years. However, these studies are difficult to interpret because it is difficult to decide whether the observed phenomena are primary or secondary to the migraine attack. For that reason it is important that future migraine research focus on studies that concern migrain etiology. Migraine is a paroxysmal disorder. It is most likely and ion-channel disorder like familial hemiplegic migraine. The present paper focuses on genetic factors in migraine and chronic tension-type headache.
