But for millions of Americans suffering from debilitating migraines, the pain can be so intense that relief may seem out of reach. Faced with a growing demand for solutions, researchers, drug companies and medical providers have sought out new treatment options.

  • Study Shows Migraines Can Be Caused By Sex Hormones In Women

    14 (UPI) -- Researchers believe they have determined why more women than men get migraines, offering the potential for targeted treatments. Sex hormones affect cells around the trigeminal nerve and connected blood vessels in the head, which researchers say contributes to the higher occurrence of migraine in men than in women, according to research published Monday in the journal Frontiers in Molecular Biosciences.

  • New Study Shows How Physical Activity Can Help Prevent Dementia

    Researchers from Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany believe they have discovered how exactly physical activity may help to prevent dementia in old age. The study, which was published in the August edition of Nature, investigated the effects of regular exercise on brain metabolism and memory in 60 participants between the ages of 65 and 85. The results of the study showed that physical activity has an influence on brain metabolism as it prevents an increase in choline, a metabolite that rises as a result of an increased loss of nerve cells. Researchers found physical exercise also causes a stable cerebral choline concentration in the group that participated in bike training. Through the study, researchers concluded that physical exercise not only improves physical fitness but may also help to protect cells.

  • Study Shows Common Asthma Drugs May Help Prevent Deadly Pneumonia

    A new study from the University of Virginia School of Medicine has found that common asthma drugs may be effective in protecting against a deadly form of pneumonia. Influenza pneumonia is caused by a virus and develops when the flu infection spreads to alveolar air sacs in the lower respiratory tract of the lungs. "If infection is severe enough, and the immune response is potent enough, you get injury to these cells and are no longer able to get sufficient oxygen exchange," Dr. Thomas J. Braciale, Ph.D., UVA researcher and co-author of the study, said in a press release. "As a result of the infection of the cells, you can develop lethal pneumonia and die." The study showed early administration of the asthma drugs Accolate and Singulair could prevent infection from spreading to the alveolar cells in the lower respiratory tract.
