Traditional Chinese Medicine for migraine

New research alert!

Our researchers are working hard to find better migraine treatments.

Traditional Chinese medicines have been used for centuries to treat migraine. MRF grantee Dr. Xiaohui Wang from Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry just finished his study on the two most popular of these medicines.

Using animal cells, Dr. Wang investigated the active ingredients in the medicines. He found two key chemicals that may reduce migraine activity in the brain.

This discovery is the first step to developing new compounds for future drug development.
