Abstract/OtherAbstract:
It has been suggested that during attacks of migraine both platelet activation and plasma coagulability are increased. We investigated the prevalence of several prothrombotic genetic risk factors in patients with migraine: factor V R/Q 506, factor II 20210 G/A, decanucleotide insertion/deletion in the factor VII promoter, and the platelet HPA-1 and HPA-2 alloantigenic systems, by genotypic identification in an age- and sex-matched case-control study including 106 patients with migraine (49 with aura, and 57 without aura). The prevalence of all genotypes was similar among case patients and controls. No association in relation to the type of migraine was detected in the factor II, factor VII, HPA-1, or HPA-2 polymorphisms. Our results showed a high prevalence of factor V Leiden in those patients with migraine with aura (6.1%), though that association was not statistically significant. The studied prothrombotic genetic factors do not seem to be associated with the development of migraine and, therefore, are not likely relevant in the previously reported hypercoagulability and platelet hyperaggregability in this disease.
