    Migraine IIN 3D in vivo

    Hey Tangerinearmy, I'm thrilled that you are interested. Reading this paper “literally” - It suggests - “mutations in the ADH4 gene” Does this mean we're “Mutants”! It also states - “a novel rearrangement involving NRXN3 gene” Does that make us noveltee's or novelties?? Published research in this field follows two lines, this ADH4 line and the HCRTR line. Here is a good read on HCRTR Frontiers in Neuroscience orexin/hypocretin receptor pharmacogenetics http://journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fnins.2014.00057/full Here is an overall view - The journal of Headache and Pain Genes and primary headaches: discovering new potential therapeutic targets http://www.thejournalofheadacheandpain.com/content/14/1/61 Here Professor Peter Goadsby explains the importance of finding a “Biomarker” What’s on the horizon for headaches Ob.Gyn.

At the LTFU, participant #3 reported that his migraine cycles and the accompanying pain had been significantly reduced for a number of months after the LSD treatments. Participant #12 reported no migraine in the 12 months up to the LTFU. This incidental observation may be an indication to support some recent studies (Sewell et al., 2006). shocked Edit: Can't get the Michigan link to work but it googles ok.

Paul is one of the key people who has stepped in to consolidate and continue the experimental research begun by Dr. Shulgin. In addition to telling about SashaÂ’s chemical research, Dr. Daley also talks about some of the reasons Sasha has given for why he does what he does. And we also hear about some of the ongoing research taking place in SashaÂ’s laboratory, including research into a possible remedy for cluster headaches. http://www.matrixmasters.net/salon/2014/04/podcast-394-shulgin-farm-research-update-2013/ CH at 42 mins shocked
