COVID-19 UPDATE  

Progesterone may be the foundation for a drug treatment for TBI.

Posted by: Robert Deutschmann, Personal Injury Lawyer

BHR Pharam began a multinational trial with 1200 TBI patients in 2010. Individuals with moderate to severe TBI received a five day IV infusion of progesterone that started withing eight hours of their injury. The study was done in conjunction with American Brain Injury Consortium and the European Brain Injury Consortium.

It's hoped that the patients see improved outcomes 6 months post injury as measured on the Glasgow Outcome Scale. Progesterone therapy has been found to affect the central nervous systme of men and women, and previous studies have shown that its use can result in less brain swelling  and lessbrain cell death.

BHR Pharam will be releasing the highly anticipated drug trial results in May 2014. We'll be keeping tabs on the develpment of drug therapies for TBI which for now can only be treated with emergency surgery, and symptom relief.
