Bone marrow derived stem cell therapy shown to reduce inflammation in traumatic brain injury

Results of a cellular therapy clinical trial for traumatic brain injury (TBI) using a patient's own stem cells showed that the therapy appears to dampen the body's neuroinflammatory response to trauma and preserve brain tissue, according to researchers at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth). The results, which also confirmed safety … Continue reading Bone marrow derived stem cell therapy shown to reduce inflammation in traumatic brain injury

Researchers found pathology behind traumatic brain injury and possible theraputic target

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can have various harmful long-term neurological effects, including problems with vision, coordination, memory, mood, and thinking. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, traumatic brain injury  from a head injury is a leading cause of death and disability in the United States, and close to 5 million Americans—soldiers and … Continue reading Researchers found pathology behind traumatic brain injury and possible theraputic target
