Pediatric and Adolescent Migraine
Like adults, children and adolescents can experience migraine headaches. However, they may not understand or be able to express what is happening to them the same way adults can. Their symptoms may be different too. Migraine headaches are thought to be passed on by a family member (inherited). Migraines begin earlier in boys than girls, but after puberty, more girls than boys will develop migraine headaches.
Migraine is a common condition among children and adolescents. It is estimated that 10% of children aged 5 and 15 years and 28% of adolescents aged between 15 to 19 years, experience migraine headaches.
Artemis Institute for Clinical Research is conducting a clinical trial of an investigational medication for the treatment of pediatric and adolescent migraine. Qualified volunteers who participate in this research study may receive monetary compensation for time and travel, study-related medical evaluations, psychological assessments and investigational study drug at no cost.
