Blame Migraines On Your Parents
Genome-wide Meta-Analysis Identifies New Susceptibility Loci For Migraine
"Migraine is the most common brain disorder, affecting approximately 14% of the adult population, but its molecular mechanisms are poorly understood. We report the results of a meta-analysis across 29 genome-wide association studies, including a total of 23,285 individuals with migraine (cases) and 95,425 population-matched controls."
Genetic roots of migraine uncovered
"In the largest ever study of migraines, researchers have found five genetic regions that for the first time have been linked to the onset of migraine."
Oxidative stress in Parkinson's disease
"Oxidative stress contributes to the cascade leading to dopamine cell degeneration in Parkinson's disease (PD). However, oxidative stress is intimately linked to other components of the degenerative process, such as mitochondrial dysfunction, excitotoxicity, nitric oxide toxicity and inflammation."
