Detecting implausible social network effects in acne, height, and headaches: longitudinal analysis. OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether "network effects" can be detected for health outcomes that are unlikely to be subject to network phenomena. DESIGN: Statistical analysis common in network studies, such as logistic regression analysis, controlled for own and friend's lagged health status. Analyses controlled for environmental confounders. SETTING: Subsamples of the National Longitudinal Study (...) of Adolescent Health (Add Health). PARTICIPANTS: 4300 to 5400 male and female adolescents who nominated a friend in the dataset and who were both longitudinally surveyed. Measurements Health outcomes, including headache severity, acne severity, and height self reported by respondents in 1994-5, 1995-6, and 2000-1. RESULTS: Significant network effects were observed in the acquisition of acne, headaches, and height. A friend's acne problems increased an individual's odds of acne problems (odds ratio 1.62, 95

Normobaric and hyperbaric oxygen therapy for migraine and cluster headache. BACKGROUND: Migraine and cluster headaches are severe and disabling. Migraine affects up to 18% of women, while cluster headaches are much less common (0.2% of the population). A number of acute and prophylactic therapies are available. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is the therapeutic administration of 100% oxygen at environmental pressures greater than one atmosphere, while normobaric oxygen therapy (NBOT) is oxygen (...) administered at one atmosphere. OBJECTIVES: To assess the safety and effectiveness of HBOT and NBOT for treating and preventing migraine and cluster headaches. SEARCH STRATEGY: We searched the following in May 2008: CENTRAL, MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL, DORCTIHM and reference lists from relevant articles. Relevant journals were hand searched and researchers contacted. SELECTION CRITERIA: Randomised trials comparing HBOT or NBOT with one another, other active therapies, placebo (sham) interventions

Inflammation is thought to play a role in the pathophysiology of migraine and there is conflicting evidence regarding (...) the effect of corticosteroids on reducing early recurrences. We conducted a randomized clinical trial to test the hypothesis that dexamethasone (DEX) reduced headaches after discharge and examine the factors associated with relapse. Consenting adults (18 and older) presenting with acute migraine at 4 EDs were enrolled. In addition to standard intravenous (IV) abortive therapy, using concealed allocation patients were randomized to receive IV DEX (15 mg) or placebo (PLA) in a double-blind fashion. Relapse
