We aimed to look for the association of tumor necrosis factor (TNF) gene polymorphisms (TNFA 308G > A, and TNFB 252G > A) in genetic susceptibility to migraine. The pathogenesis of migraine involves many immune-mediated mechanisms in the vascular endothelium. TNF, being a potent immunomodulator and pro-inflammatory cytokine, is suggested to be involved in(More)
The dopaminergic system plays an important role in migraine and its clinical subtypes. Hypersensitization of dopamine receptor type 2 (DRD2) in migraine led to successful administration of receptor antagonists in antimigraine therapy. Ankyrin repeats and kinase domain containing 1 (ANKK1) gene in DRD2 loci is linked to comorbid neurological disorders.(More)
BACKGROUND The present study was undertaken to find out the role of estrogen pathway related gene polymorphisms in susceptibility to migraine in Northern Indian population. Aromatase, CYP19A1 (rs10046 and rs4646); estrogen receptors, ESR1 (rs2234693, rs1801132, rs2228480 and rs9340799) and ESR2 (rs1271572 and rs1256049) polymorphisms were selected for the(More)
OBJECTIVE Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified various migraine susceptibility variants. We aim to replicate 5 GWAS-associated polymorphisms (rs1835740, LRP1 rs11172113, TRPM8 rs10166942, PRDM16 rs2651899, and TGFBR2 rs7640453) in the North Indian population. Furthermore, we checked the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in strong(More)
OBJECTIVE The dopaminergic system plays a major role in migraine. We aimed to look for association of polymorphisms in dopaminergic genes in genetic susceptibility to migraine in North Indian population. In the present study, two polymorphisms, DBH 19 bp indel (rs no. 72393728) and DRD2 Nco I (rs no. 6275), were selected. DESIGN Using case-control design,(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Migraine pathophysiology involves a complex interplay of processes wherein the hormonal, neurotransmitter and inflammatory pathways interact to influence the migraine phenotype. However, all studies pertaining to the role of genetic variants in migraine have been restricted to a specific pathway and none of the studies has looked into(More)
