New blood test for identifying traumatic brain injury

Many Colorado residents have experienced a traumatic brain injury, whether in an automobile collision or through participation in an athletic event. A recent study has shown that a specific blood test is beneficial for determining the effects of a TBI, which could aid in the patient's subsequent treatment. This was done by comparing the results of the blood tests of traumatically brain injured patients with their results from traditional measures, such as CT scans and MRIs. The study was published in a respected journal that features articles on clinical and laboratory advances related to traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries.

Study suggests brain injuries impact women longer than men

Women in Colorado struggling to recover from traumatic brain injuries, even mild ones, have a greater chance of ending up with long-term memory problems than men with similar injuries. The director of the Brain Injury Research Center at UCLA said the 10 to 20 percent of brain injury victims whose symptoms persist for years tend to be female.

Brain injuries may cause the brain to age prematurely

Colorado patients who have suffered a brain injury may be interested to learn that a British study released on April 1 indicates that head injuries could cause the brain to age prematurely. A lead researcher on the study suggests that a brain injury could set off secondary processes that may lead to damage that develops over time.
