Researchers find potential therapy for brain swelling during concussion
from Medical Xpress
A team of biomedical engineering researchers at the University of Arkansas have identified a cause of fluid swelling of the brain, or cellular edema,that occurs during a concussion. The researchers discovered that pre-treating the cells with an existing, U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved drug used for epilepsy and altitude sickness reduces the expression of a specific protein that causes swelling.
