Study to Determine if Progesterone Can Help Treat Traumatic Brain Injuries

For many years, little was known about how to treat
traumatic brain injuries.  While
tremendous progress has been made recently, these injuries remain a mystery for
many in the medical world.  However, one
thing that some have noticed is that over the years, women have tended to
recover faster and more completely from traumatic brain injuries than men, and
researchers in England want to find out if this was merely a coincidence or if
there is something to that perceived trend.

Specifically, researchers will study more than 1,200
traumatic brain injury patients around the world by providing some of them with
progesterone, which is a female sex hormone. 
Those conducting the study will want to find out whether or not the use
of this hormone will promote faster and more complete healing for traumatic
brain injuries.  This is being done after
a study on rats in 2008 showed what were described as ‘remarkable’ results.

Traumatic Brain Injury Statistics

First, we’d like to offer our hope that this study along
with any others that are being done reveal one or even more pathways towards
successfully treating patients with traumatic brain injuries.  Any progress that could be made could make an
enormously positive difference on the high number of people in the United
States alone who suffer from this injury. 
Every year, more than 50,000 people are killed and hundreds of thousands
more face long-term disability because of traumatic brain injuries.

Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers

The information above should alert anyone to the fact that
when someone acts recklessly or negligently, the person who has been harmed
faces a long and difficult road back to health. 
Therefore, people who are harmed in this manner can and often do file
traumatic brain injury lawsuits that if successful could lead to an award of
damages that compensates them for their losses.

If you or someone you love has been harmed in this manner,
you need to seek the help of traumatic
brain injury lawyers
who have been fighting for the rights of those injured
for many years.  Contact the Scarlett Law
