Migraine: finally a vaccine against headaches

emicrania-500x301

Finally headache will not be a problem anymore. The solution comes from Italy were they finally manage to create a vaccine against migraine.

But what is it exactly and how does it solve the problem? Those who suffer from migraines for 15 days a month and for at least three months, can benefit from this new vaccine, to see all the symptoms disappear for a period of nine months.

Migraine is a highly disabling disorder that affects about 15% of the population in the world; Professor Piero Barbanti, IRCCS San Raffaele Pisana, Rome, says: “This experimental results are very promising and they also indicate a significant reduction in higher migraine attacks, till 62% in the space of three months. This vaccine is injected once a month for several consecutive months”.

This study, in particular, aims to seek a cure for this troublesome disease with a targeted drug; this “smart” antibody can, in fact, prevent the formation of Cgrp (Calcitonin Gene Related Peptide), which causes headache.

Up to now the treatment for headache was treated with methods that are generally used for other diseases, such as hypertension, tachycardia or epilepsy, which only randomly have proved also effective for headache disorders. Hopefully now we have found a solution.
