Migraine is associated with specific lipoprotein subfraction levels in a European population

Takeaway

  • There is an association between migraine and triglyceride-rich lipoprotein levels in populations of European ancestry.

Why this matters

    This unique study evaluated the phenotypic and genetic relationship between migraine and lipoprotein subfractions using data from cohorts of European ancestry. The findings further our understanding of the biological mechanisms underlying lipid metabolism and migraine pathology and provide insights into the relationship between migraine and cardiovascular disease. The shared genetic components could help to identify potential targets for migraine therapies.
