Along with a polygenic risk score enhanced in migraine sufferers, new research reveals a high-frequency variant implicated in cold adaptation and migraine in Europeans.
Researchers found variants associated with coronary artery disease and migraine risk at three loci in a genome-wide association study, with opposing directional effects at two index SNPs.
The analysis also indicates that vascular and smooth muscle tissues contribute to migraine pathophysiology.
