Migraine is a common, paroxysmal, highly disabling primary headache disorder with a genetic background. The primary cause and the origin of migraine attacks are enigmatic. Numerous clinical and experimental results suggest that activation of the trigeminal system (TS) is crucial in its pathogenesis, but the primary cause of this activation is not fully(More)
Cranial parasympathetic outflow is mediated through the sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG). The present study was performed to examine the expression of the parasympathetic signaling transmitters and their receptors in human and rat SPG. Indirect immunofluorescence technique was used for the demonstration of vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP), pituitary(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Clinical and experimental studies have revealed a central role of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) in primary headaches. The role of extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1 and 2 (ERK1/2) in neuronal and glial cell expression of CGRP- immunoreactivity (-ir) in rat trigeminal ganglia was studied with an organ culture method.

Migraine is a common, paroxysmal, highly disabling primary headache disorder. The origin of migraine attacks is enigmatic. Numerous clinical and experimental results suggest that the activation of distinct brainstem nuclei is crucial in its pathogenesis, but the primary cause of this activation is not fully understood. We conclude that the initialization of(More)
Primary headaches such as migraine are among the most prevalent neurological disorders, affecting up to one-fifth of the adult population. The scientific work in the last decade has unraveled much of the pathophysiological background of migraine, which is now considered to be a neurovascular disorder. It has been discovered that the(More)
Although migraine is a common, paroxysmal, highly disabling disorder, the primary cause and the pathomechanism of migraine attacks are enigmatic. Experimental results suggest that activation of the trigeminovascular system is crucial in its pathogenesis. This activation leads to the release of vasoactive neuropeptides (calcitonin gene-related peptide -(More)
The sensory innervation of intracranial vessels originates in the trigeminal ganglion with calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), substance P (SP) and pituitary adenylate cyclase activating peptide (PACAP) as frequent neuronal messengers. The present study was designed to study the expression of these neuropeptides (a) in primary culture of adult rat(More)
