Some brain injuries, particularly relatively mild brain injuries such as concussions, reverse themselves. However, not all brain injury victims are that lucky. For those with lasting symptoms and limitations, there may be little hope of a complete cure. Instead, medical attention focuses on preventing the injury from getting worse and on providing rehabilitation therapies to help the victim improve to the best extent possible.
New Trial Therapies for Brain Injuries
There is not yet a definitive treatment that can offer hope to all brain injury victims. However, currently, there are reported to be 13 clinical treatments being tested for the possible treatment of traumatic brain injuries. Those treatments include using:
- Stems cells
- Magnesium sulfate 9
- Calcium iron influx
- Other treatments
It is currently unknown which, if any, of these treatments will be successful or how many brain injury victims may be helped during the trial studies.
