[NTG-context] regexp for matching entire footnotes

I have to find (highlight) footnotes with the entire footnote being  
Constructing a regexp for this is far beyond what I can write, that's  
why I frankly ask for help here:

The problems are the (potentially) nested pairs of curled brackets  
(like for \index, \emphasize etc etc) ...

\footnote{Vgl. zur Historie \it{Name}, „Staatssekretär\index 

... as the found string shouldn't stop at the first "}" that was found.

Somebody knows a syntax that ignores curled bracket pairs *included*  
in footnotes and really matches the entire note?
