Abstract

Objective: White matter lesions (WMLs) are more common in migraine patients than in the normal population. Ischemia/hypoxia and oxidative stress are considered to play a role in WMLs formation. This study aimed to investigate ischemia-modified albumin (IMA), ferroxidase and thiol/disulfide homeostasis in migraineurs with and without WMLs.
