It is not previously investigated whether, there is a correlation between potassium channels and migraine, so it is unclear whether, this signaling pathway through potassium channels has an impact on migraine pathophysiology.
Maxipost (BMS 204352) is a vasoactive molecule that causes vasodilation via the big calcium dependent potassium (BKCa) channel signaling pathway. Maxipost decreases the blood pressure and maxipost infusion causes headache in healthy volunteers. A possible coherence between maxipost and headache/migraine in healthy volunteers and migraine patients is yet to be investigated.
The present study aims to clarify a possible coherence between maxipost and headache/migraine and it will help to shed light on the importance of potassium channels in migraine. In general, the study will contribute to a greater understanding of migraine pathogenesis and possibly lead to development of specific migraine treatment.

|Active Comparator: Maxipost||
To investigate the role of maxipost on cerebral hemodynamic and headache in healthy volunteers and migraine patients
|Placebo Comparator: Saline||
To investigate the role of saline on cerebral hemodynamic and headache in healthy volunteers and migraine patients
- Change in cerebral hemodynamic [ Time Frame: Before (-10 minutes) and after infusion (+2 hours) of maxipost compared with before and after infusion of saline ]Change on velocity of media cerebri artery. Change on velocity will be measured with centimeter (cm) /second.
- Occurrence and change of headache [ Time Frame: Before (-10 minutes) and after infusion (+12 hours) of maxipost compared with before and after infusion of saline ]Occurrence of headache measured by numerical rating scale (NRS)
- Occurrence and change of migraine attack [ Time Frame: Before (-10 minutes) and after infusion (+12 hours) of maxipost compared with before and after infusion of saline ]Occurrence and of migraine according to international criteria
- Change of diameter of the artery [ Time Frame: Before (-10 minutes) and after infusion (+2 hours) of maxipost compared with before and after infusion of saline ]Change of diameter of superficial temporal artery and radial artery. The diameter will be measured by centimeter (cm)
