Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Migraines have been a longstanding concern in the medical field, representing the most common neurological disorder. Despite extensive research, their precise causes and optimal treatment strategies remain mainly elusive. This Special Issue delves into the diagnosis and treatment of migraines, building upon the rich history of scientific inquiry in this area.

We aim to consolidate the latest advancements in understanding and managing migraines, and will explore innovative approaches to diagnosis, cutting-edge therapeutic interventions, and emerging trends in the field. By gathering diverse perspectives, this issue seeks to foster collaboration and improve outcomes for migraine sufferers.

This Special Issue will showcase groundbreaking research on migraines, highlighting studies that employ advanced diagnostic techniques, genetic analyses, and personalized medicine approaches. We will also include pioneering investigations into the role of lifestyle modifications, novel pharmaceutical agents, and neuromodulation techniques in migraine management. A wide range of contributions will be welcomed, including comprehensive reviews that synthesize existing knowledge, case series that shed light on unique patient experiences, and meta-analyses that provide robust evidence on specific diagnostic or therapeutic interventions. By encompassing a variety of research methodologies, we aim to offer a comprehensive overview of the current state of migraine research and treatment.

Despite the growing prevalence of gout and its associated health concerns as a chronic disorder, population-based studies on its link to migraines are scarce. We conducted a 16-year longitudinal study in a Korean population to investigate the relationship between gout and migraines, including different subtypes. We enrolled 23,137 patients with gout and matched them with 92,548 controls based on age, sex, income, and residence. Using Cox proportional hazards models, we calculated hazard ratios to assess the likelihood of migraines while considering relevant factors. During the follow-up, 1000 gout patients and 3214 controls experienced migraines. After adjusting for various factors, including demographics, health-related variables, and weight categories, the gout group had a 1.26-fold higher likelihood of developing migraines compared to the group without gout. This association was particularly strong for migraines without aura, while it was not significant for migraines with aura. In summary, our study reveals a significant link between gout and migraines in the Korean population, emphasizing the complex relationship among chronic disorders, with a specific focus on migraine subtypes.
