A recent genome-wide meta study suggested that rs67338227 in the FHL5 gene and rs10456100 in the KCNK5 gene are associated with migraine from 27 population-based cohorts excluding Chinese population.

  • 2 weeks 3 days
    This is an interesting study highlighting the fact that we are moving towards personalized medicine.
  • 2 weeks 5 days
    This study highlights the coming of personalized medicine based on genomics (at least in part). 2 SNPs were found to be associated with migraine without aura and a specific population but it is unclear how generalizable this finding is.
