Objective: The study aim is to verify whether treatment with a new combination of tanacethum partenium, 5-hydrossitriptophan (5-http) and magnesium (Aurastop®) reduces headache frequency and intensity in patients suffering from episodic migraine without aura when used in migraine prevention. Methods: Forty patients, suffering from migraine without aura for at least 6 months with monthly frequency of 3 to 8 crises and presence of headache of 4 to12 days, were enrolled in this open study and treated orally with Aurastop twice daily for 3 months. The primary endpoint was reduction of migraine frequency (headache days per month) over an observation period of 3 months. The secondary endpoint was a composite of monthly frequency and intensity of pain crises, analgesics use (number of medications) and subjective change of pain intensity. Results: All the parameters significantly improved at the end of treatment with Aurastop. We observed a significant reduction of the number of headache days (from 8.8 ± 2.0 before treatment to 2.7 ± 1.7 post treatment, p < 0.001), as well as of the number of attacks (from 5.0 ± 1.2 per month to 2.1 ± 0.9 per month, p < 0.001), of pain intensity (from Visual Analogic Scale [VAS] 6.9 ± 1.0 to 3.3 ± 1.5, p < 0.001), and of the number of analgesics assumed by each subject (from 8.5 ± 1.6 per month to 2.4 ± 1.5 per month, p < 0.001). No serious adverse events were observed. Conclusion: Though obtained in the setting of an open-trial, our findings suggest that the new combination of tanacethum partenium, 5-hydrossitriptophan (5-http) and magnesium (AURASTOP®) is a promising approach for migraine prevention and warrant further investigation to confirm the safety and efficacy of this treatment. *Corresponding author: Giorgio Dalla Volta, Neurology Department, Istituto Clinico Città Di Brescia,Via Gualla, 25123 Brescia, Italy, E-mail: dalla@numerica.it Received Date: August 02, 2017 Accepted Date: August 10, 2017 Published Date: August 11, 2017 Citation: Dalla Volta, G., et al.

Brain single-photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT), in particular, with perfusion agents or with neuroreceptor imaging radiopharmaceuticals, is rapidly becoming a clinical tool in many neurologic and psychiatric conditions. This imaging modality has been used for diagnosis, prognosis assessment, evaluation of response to therapy, risk stratification, detection of benign vs. malignant ...

<strong>Background and Objectives:</strong> Previous studies have indicated that lithium may increase the level of the brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), which in turn improves the recovery of patients with stroke. In this controlled trial we evaluated the effect of lithium on BDNF serum level in patients with ischemic stroke.<br /> <strong>Methods:</strong> In this randomized controlled...

Hereditary spastic paraplegias are highly heterogeneous neurodegenerative disorders with some special mutations. We report on a patient with pescavus, distal a myotrophy, hyper extended fingers, and pectus excavatum. Neurological examination showed that he had proximal lower limbs weakness with a positive Gower sign, exaggerated lower limbs deep tendon reflexes with spasticity, distal muscle wa...

Enhanced immune cell trafficking into the central nervous system (CNS) and disruption of the blood brain barrier are pathophysiological hallmarks of neuroinflammatory disorders like multiple sclerosis (MS) and its animal model, experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE). However, recent studies suggest that the coagulation and the contact-kinin system might also be involved in MS developme...

Two-pore domain potassium channels, like KCNK2, are known to play an important role in inflammatory diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS). Upregulation of cellular adhesion molecules in mouse brain microvascular endothelial cells (MBMECs) of Kcnk2-/- mice resulted in elevated leukocyte trafficking into the central nervous system under inflammatory conditions. The current project aims to gain...
