The American Council for Headache Education (ACHE) launches its new Patient Education Page (PEP) in the journal, Headache. The page is a public service of ACHE, the patient education affiliate of the American Headache Society (AHS) and includes concise information that is useful for both patients and physicians. January’s page covers Menstrual Migraine: What You Should Know.
This first patient handout outlines migraine definitions, what to do, and various therapies that women can follow to help alleviate pain and symptoms during their menstrual period. Sufferers are encouraged to keep a calendar to track menstruation and migraine headaches while avoiding triggers, such as lack of sleep, alcohol or skipping meals.
Examples for treatment are provided as well, including information on various medications like triptans or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin. Although the information offered is not intended to be a diagnosis or recommended treatment, the Patient Education Page (PEP) can be an effective tool between physicians and patients to talk about healing.

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
