Potential treatment for concusssions

Colorado residents may want to hear about a new pharmaceutical drug that reportedly has the potential to protect football players and others from suffering brain damage. Researchers have discovered that a drug could be developed from an experimental treatment that was used to restore normal brain functions and structure to mice that had suffered a severe concussion. The focal point of recent concussion news has been football players and boxers diagnosed with chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a progressive neurodegenerative disease resulting from repeated head trauma.

Pediatric brain injuries in Colorado

Researchers have recently discovered that the recovery time for children with brain injuries often has less to do with the severity of the trauma to the head and more to do with the extent of the damage to the coating around the nerves of the cranium. In fact, children and teens who showed myelin sheath damage consistently scored lower on cognitive tests than subjects who had not suffered any type of head injury.

Teenage drivers motor vehicle accidents

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has found that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for American teenagers. It comes as no surprise that many parents in Colorado are looking for ways of keeping their teenagers safe behind the wheel. Information about the reasons behind the statistics and safety precautions is a service provided by the CDC, but understanding the scope of the problem is the first step.
