Genetic-based personalized medicine in headaches

A pharmacogenetic study by Italian researchers discovered that absence of a certain gene can predict therapeutic response in migraine patients who are treated with riboflavin (vitamin B2).   Pharmacogenomics has been a very promising field of medical science that may enable doctors to select the most effective and safe medicine for each patient based on their genetic profile.  This is a small but important step in utilizing this science to treat headache patients.
