Ictal and Interictal Inflammatory Markers in Migraine
The purpose of this study is to evaluate blood levels of several proteins that may be altered in the inflammation associated with migraine headaches. These blood levels will be evaluated in individuals during an acute migraine attack and compared to their levels when pain free. The investigators study hypothesis is that the pro inflammatory proteins in the blood will be greater than the levels of these proteins when evaluated during a pain free period.
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment

- Blood levels of proteins will be evaluated at baseline when subjects are pain-free and then repeated during an acute attack, both prior to drug administration and then at 30 minutes, 1 hour and 2 hours after acute treatment. [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
