Volunteers wanted for a study on the Greater Occipital Nerve (GON) block in patients with migraine

Post by Tee on Tue Nov 01, 2011 2:25 am

The Department of Pain Medicine at Leicester General Hospital are conducting a research study to evaluate the analgesic efficacy of the GON block in patients with migraine.

The research project will help identify if the occipital nerve block - a mixture of local anaesthetic and steroid medication -... is successful in reducing the frequency and intensity of migraine headaches. The injection will be performed at the Leicester General Hospital as a day case procedure and the participant will be able to go home the same day.

Adults who experience at least 2 migraine headaches in a month are eligible to take part in the study.

If you are interested in participating in this study, please contact Dr Niraj Gopinath's Secretary, at the Department of Pain Medicine, Leicester General Hospital on 0116 258 8253 . A member of the research team will contact you by telephone and send you details of the project.
