Harvard ~ Psilocybin
In our initial research project, our Case Series completed at Harvard showed the effectiveness of treating cluster headaches with psychedelics. The results were published first in the peer-reviewed medical journal Neurology and publicized cluster headaches, the need for new treatments and the possibilities that further research into psychedelic related research could offer exciting opportunities.
Upon the determination of the importance of our work by the administration of Harvard, our study was the first psychedelic study approved there in over 40 years.

These completed stages of research can be viewed below.
The work that set the basis for the future BOL-148 research.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder ~ Research
Medication Use Survey ~ Study
Oxygen Survey and resulting study
Clusterbusters along with Dr. Larry Schor, Dr. Mark Burish, Dr. Robert Shapiro and Stuart Pearson conducted the Cluster Headache Questionnaire, an International Survey. One of the published research papers that came about from this survey were the results of: Effectiveness of Oxygen and Other Acute Treatments for Cluster Headache.
This research was recently used as evidence in our latest submissions to CMS to again ask for their reconsideration of their decision to not approve home oxygen for cluster patients.
This along with the additional oxygen research published by Clusterbusters (example below) is particularly useful and important in our continued advocacy work and educational projects. This study helps in educating more doctors to convince them to prescribe oxygen and at the proper flow rates. It is also helpful for people fighting their insurance companies in the US for coverage and helpful when ordering oxygen from medical device suppliers in getting the correct equipment.
This research is commonly linked as a valuable tool in helping cluster patients overcome the many obstacles that still remain when trying to access the best acute treatment available.
Oxygen Survey ~ Study
This is another published oxygen study by Clusterbusters, Dr. Emmanuelle Schindler, Dr. Chris Gottschalk, Dr. Doug Wright and Marsha Weil.
This important research again helps present high flow oxygen as the effective and safe acute treatment that it is and helps us battle the long list of access issues we deal with as a community.
LSA (Lysergic Acid Amide) ~ Study
Following our discovery of LSA as an efficacious treatment for cluster headaches, and the resulting research study at Yale, a great many people worldwide have found success in treating their cluster headache cycles.

Response of Cluster Headache to Kudzu ~ Study-Sewell
Dr. Sewell conducted a study into its effectiveness in treating cluster attacks.
Results.—(69%) experienced decreased intensity of attacks, (56%) decreased frequency, and (31%) decreased duration, with minimal side effects.
Conclusion.—Anecdotal evidence suggests that a component in OTC products labeled as kudzu may prove useful in managing cluster headache.

Diagnostic Tool Design ~ Study
Clusterbusters teamed with Dr. Morris Maizels and his design team and we’ve helped to develop an online diagnostic tool that helps people and their doctors zero in on a correct diagnosis. A large number of people in our community helped fine tune the tool.
If you’re not sure about your own diagnosis or if you want to share the tool with doctors or other patients, view tool.
