New neurostimulation therapy for management of refractory Chronic Migraine

Opportunity to participate in migraine research

From time to time The Migraine Trust is approached by researchers seeking volunteers to assist with migraine related research projects. The following text is included on The Migraine Trust website for information only and this does not constitute a recommendation. Any questions should be made to the researchers directly using the contact details provided. You can learn more about taking part in research here and read our disclaimer here.

Do you experience disabling Migraine that has not responded to several treatments?

The Headache Service at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Pain Management & Neuromodulation Centre in London is looking for patients to enrol into a clinical trial (approved by the Regulatory Authority and Ethics Committee) to test the effectiveness of a new implantable device for the management of migraine.

They are looking for individuals who suffer with Chronic Migraines (at least 15 headache days per month, with at least 8 of those being migraine days) and have failed to respond to conventional drug treatments (including 2 trials of Botulinum toxin type A).  The trial will involve the implantation of a spinal cord stimulator.
