Migraine and Body Composition
This research is being done to look at the association between migraine and obesity.
Migraine With and Without Aura
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case Control
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
|Official Title:||Migraine and Body Composition|
- association between migraine and obesity - evaluate serum adipokine levels [ Time Frame: 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The first aim of the proposed research is to evaluate serum adipokine levels in a clinical cohort of obese and non-obese episodic and chronic migraineurs and examine their utility as markers of the presence or absence of migraine and their relationship to headache frequency.
- association between migraine and obesity -evaluate subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) and its ratio to visceral adipose tissue (VAT) [ Time Frame: five years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The second aim of the proposed research is to evaluate subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) and its ratio to visceral adipose tissue (VAT),in the same clinical cohort of migraineurs to determine if regional adipose tissue differences exist between: (1) episodic migraineurs, (2) chronic migraineurs and (3) controls, thus contributing to the migraine-obesity relationship.
Biospecimen Retention: Samples Without DNA
|Study Start Date:||April 2012|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||April 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Those with migraines >2 and < 12 times per month.
Those with migraines greater than 14 days per month.
Those without headaches other than occasional hangover, cold, flu headaches.
Research into the role of inflammatory markers and other obesity related proteins and chemicals may help us understand migraine and lead to new treatment.
