New technologies bring new hope.
Amazing advances have been made in pharmaceutical medicine in the last 10 years. Treatment options for headache sufferers have expanded dramatically. Occasionally, opportunities to participate in drug research studies become available. These studies are usually conducted on a widespread basis by major pharmaceutical companies. While these studies are not ones in which the National Headache Foundation has an active part, we believe providing notice may be useful to headache sufferers who wish to inquire about participating.
Migraine and Quality of Life
Adults ages 18 to 75 who have migraines and are experiencing distress are invited to participate in a University of Iowa research study. The goal of the study is to assess whether a brief, one-hour video can lead to improvements in headache, mood, and quality of life.

There are numerous trials of new medications and procedures for treating headache. The National Headache Foundation cannot objectively evaluate, and does not make any representations as to, whether any of these medications and procedures are appropriate for you and if it would be in your best interest to participate in any such trials. If you are interested in any trial, you should consult with your physician.
