New Study Shows Promise in Predicting Improvements After a Traumatic Brain Injury
Exciting news about predicting a recovery in advance from a traumatic brain injury may be on the horizon. This news could potentially help those who suffered a TBI from a fall, car accident, sports injury, and for other reasons. Scientists have discovered that a blood protein in the brain that exhibits high levels can indicate damage and shrinkage to the axons that send messages. The scientists predict that those who have suffered a TBI and exhibit elevated levels of this protein may be able to indicate whether an injured person is more likely to recover.
