Healthwatch - There could be a new treatment for migraines coming out to the public in the next 2-3 years, and it is that time of the year again to get the flu shot.
There is new hope for people who suffer from migraines. The Chicago Hospital is currently testing a new treatment that can make chronic headaches vanish. The drug is called ALD403. It is given to a patient through an IV once an hour every three months. It is now in phase 3 of the trial before it goes on to the Food and Drug Administration for approval. That approval could come in the next two to three years.
Health experts are urging workers in the health care industry to get their flu shots. Doctors say that the flu shot not only protects the workers but also the patients. CVC officials say that vaccinations across the board in the United States are declining, and that last flu season only 46% of Americans received the flu shot.
