Migraine is a painful neurological condition, of which the most common symptom is an intense and disabling episodic headache. Migraine headaches are usually characterised by severe pain on one or both sides of the head. Absent serious head injuries, stroke, and tumours, the recurring severity of the pain indicates a vascular headache rather than a tension headache. Migraines are often accompanied by photophobia (hypersensitivity to light), phonophobia (hypersensitivity to sound) and nausea. Migraine is three times more common in women than in men. Some individuals can predict the onset of a migraine because it is preceded by an 'aura', visual disturbances that appear as flashing lights, zig-zag lines or a temporary loss of vision. People with migraine tend to have recurring attacks triggered by a lack of food or sleep, exposure to light, or hormonal irregularities (only in women). Anxiety, stress, or relaxation after stress can also be triggers. For many years, scientists believed that migraines were linked to

Pain is an unpleasant sensation. It is defined by the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) as "an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage". Pain is part of the body's defence system: it triggers mental problem-solving strategies that seek to end the painful experience, and it promotes learning, making repetition of the painful situation less likely. The nociceptive system transmits signals that usually trigger the sensation of pain, it is a critical component of the body's ability to react to damaging stimuli and it is part of a rapid-warning relay instructing the central nervous system to initiate reactions for minimising injury. This book presents the latest research in the field from around the globe.
These drugs will be targetted at patients whose headaches are frequent or who get their headaches at predictable times. This book reviews the potential for prophylactic treatment of headache.

Most of the familiar headache drugs are used to stop a headache attack that is already in progress, or about to begin. However, there is now a growing body of research aimed at developing medications that can be taken on a regular basis to prevent headaches from starting. These drugs will be targetted at patients whose headaches are frequent or who get their headaches at predictable times. This book reviews the potential for prophylactic treatment of headache. It provides most of the existing evidence in the field of pharmaco-prophylaxis of migraine and other chronic headaches and may thus, serve as a platform for new initiatives in the field. The book reviews the research into the pharmacological mechanisms involved, the classes of drugs in development and the clinical trials methodology. The editors have gathered together the leading international experts to produce a book that will appeal to neurologists caring for headache patients, researchers in the field and those based in the pharmaceutical industry.

Today's drug research is an extremely complex process which, apart from chemistry, pharmacology, toxicology and preclinical trials, in cludes a variety of sciences such as biotechnology, biochemistry, im munology, physics, biology and even computer sciences. The Table of Contents of the present volume demonstrates this situation and makes it evident that the individual researcher cannot possibly hope to keep abreast of all aspects of modern drug research. In this re spect, the series of monographs "Progress in Drug Research" pro vides valuable help and assistance. Those who simply wish to remain informed of the latest trends and developments in drug research can use the 34 volumes so far available as a source of almost encyclo pedic character. Researchers actively engaged in the various scientific fields forming the entity of drug research can benefit from the wealth of knowledge and experience of the respective authors, and they will be assisted in their endeavour to discover new pharmaceutical agents. Moreover, the extensive bibliographies of the individual reviews provide an invaluable overview of the literature most pertinent to today's drug research. I should like to thank all the authors for their willingness to prepare the reviews and for sharing their insights and experience with the readers. Thanks are also due to Mrs L. Koechlin, H.-P. Thiir and A. Gomm of Birkhauser Publishers for their valuable help in the pre paration of this volume.

The potential involvement of neurogenic inflammation in the pathogenesis of the migraine headache and the inhibition of this mechanism as a possible mode of action of antimigraine medications are discussed in great depth in this volume. The topics are approached from a pathophysiological as well as a clinical experimental perspective by a renowned group of clinicians and scientists who carefully consider the current, future, and potential therapeutic approaches to migraine treatment. The first chapters of the book address the impact of migraine on a personal and societal level, the presentation, pathogenesis and treatment of migraine as well as the role of neurogenic inflammation. Subsequent chapters present models of neurogenic inflammation related to the pathogenesis of the migraine headache, focussing on the mediators and their receptors, as well as on the involvement of mast cells. The possibility of inhibition of neurogenic inflammation in abortive and preventive migraine treatment is also extensively discussed and a chapter on the question of whether migraine is a neuroinflammatory disease concludes this comprehensive analysis. Clinicians and scientists interested in inflammation from a physiological or pharmacological perspective and those interested in the pathogenesis of headache - migraine in particular - are the intended audience for this unique body of work.

Nach 30 Jahren Recherchen und eigenen Untersuchungen legt der Verfasser eine Monographie über Migräneanfälligkeit und Migräneauslöser vor. Ein solches Buch für Migräne-Ärzte und Migränepatienten gibt es bisher in der ganzen Welt noch nicht. Nirgendwo findet man so viele Migräneauslöser (etwa 250) und die zugehörige Literatur. Nirgendwo gibt es eine solch ausführliche Betrachtung der Migräneauslöser. Hier finden Sie eine Hypothese, mit der fast alle Migräneauslöser erklärt werden können. Kein Migränebuch enthält die Vorstellung des wichtigen Aspektes „erhöhte Migräneanfälligkeit“, die oft erst die Voraussetzung für einen Migräneanfall ist. Wer Interesse an der Migräne hat, wird zahlreiche neue Fakten und Gedanken finden. Er muss nicht für Stunden im Internet suchen, sondern hat die meisten Fakten in einem Buch vereint. This is a book about migraine triggers and increased migraine susceptibility, in which you can find about 250 migraine triggers with 20 pages references. Nowhere you can find such a synopsis about migraine triggers (History, Is it useful to pay attention to migraine triggers? How can you establish migraine triggers? What could be the mechanism of migraine triggering? What does speak for an increased stimulation of adrenergic receptors and/or an increased NO as mechanism of migraine triggering? Should migraine patients avoid or accustomed to migraine triggers? If possible – prevention of migraine triggering.). Migraine susceptibility characterises the phenomenon, that migraine attacks of different frequency rate can be released by migraine triggers or occur spontaneously. Every migraine expert is familiar with this phenomenon, however, it is impossible to find literature on it. Here are the first facts on the basic principles and the therapy of migraine susceptibility.

Since the fifth edition of this classic volume was published, a great deal of progress has been made in the study of headache and much more is known about its mechanisms, neurobiology, and epidemiology. The discovery of serotonin receptors in the brain has led to a new class of drugs for treating headache, and an updated international classification of the various types of headache has been published. These latest developments are covered in the sixth edition of Wolff's Headache, for which Donald Dalessio has been joined by Stephen Silberstein as co-editor. New chapters have been written on diagnosis, migraine, headache due to abnormal intracranial pressure, and clinical observations. Many of the other chapters have been completely rewritten, and the rest have been thoroughly updated.
