Migraine Headache Research

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

Research will be underway shortly in New London to test the safety and efficacy of a migraine prevention treatment.  Currently 3 million Americans report they suffer with migraine headaches. Migraine symptoms can range from moderate to severe and the headaches can start as early as childhood or young adulthood.

When someone is suffering from a migraine, they may experience nausea, blurred vision or auras, a sensitivity to lights, sounds, and odors, as well as a persistent throbbing pain behind the eyes or temples. A migraine can be “the mother of all headaches” in regards to the sometimes crippling pain.  This pain may be present on one of both sides of the head.  A migraine can last anywhere from 4 to 72 hours.  Researchers have taken a look at a variety of factors that might lead to a migraine including the chemical balance in the brain, hormonal fluctuations and reactions to food, environment and stress among other contributors.

Dr. Laurence Radin, New London neurologist, will serve as the Migraine Prevention study’s Primary Investigator. His team will consist of Andrea Stewart APRN and Jessie Hatfield LPN.  The study will be conducted at Coastal Connecticut Research in New London.  Those interested in learning more can call and speak to a member of the CCRstudies team at (860)443-4567 or email marylou@ccrstudies.com.
