According to the Centers for Disease control, 1.7 million people sustain traumatic brain injuries each years in this country; about 275,000 are hospitalized; and 52,000 die. Nearly a half million who end up in the emergency room are somewhat between newborns and age 14.
In collaboration with Dr. Charles Cox, co-director of Memorial Hermann Red Duke Trauma Institute and lead investigator on UTHealth’s traumatic brain injury stem cell trial, the team has found that using a patient’s own stem cells appears to dampen the body’s inflammatory response to trauma and preserve remaining brain tissue.
