In this study, DNA samples were collected from 375,00 European, American and Australian participants. Out of this sample, almost 60,000 of them suffer from migraine. In the researchers’ analyses, 38 independent genomic regions were identified to have an association with migraine.

Based on this study alone, tens of new genetic risk factors were discovered. To read more, click here.
