GABA alterations in pediatric sport concussion

Conclusions: GABA/Cre appears increased in a region colocalized with working memory task activation after sport concussion. Further work extending these results in larger samples and at time points across the injury episode will aid in refining the clinical significance of these observations.

Not only the experience of sporting activities and events, but also rehabilitation after sports injuries are changing due to cutting-edge technologies. In sports medicine, the future holds a shift towards prevention through genomics, nutrigenomics, countless trackers, and wearables, while there are many great technologies which aim to alleviate the pain and shorten the time of recovery – if, against all odds, a sports injury still happens. Technology will change the experience of sports injuries and rehabilitation When was the last time you went out for a run without Endomondo or had a bike tour without Strava? Have ...

A new blood-based test could help change the way TBI’s such as concussions are detected in patients. FDA recently granted a De Novo request to Banyan Biomarkers to market the Banyan Brain Trauma Indicator (BTI). “The goal standard right now is the CT scan and it’s better than anything else out there,” Henry Nordhoff, chairman and CEO of Banyan Biomarkers, told MD+DI. “But the problem with CT is the cost; the time it takes; and the amount of ionizing radiation that’s delivered to the brain. It’s particularly dangerous when it’s a developing brain. You’re getting about 10...

Banyan Biomarkers this week won FDA clearance for its Banyan Brain Trauma Indicator blood test designed to evaluate concussions in adults, making it the first such test of its kind to get a pass from the federal watchdog. Approval for the device came through the the FDA’s breakthrough devices program and took only six months to review, according to a release from the agency. Patients with suspected mild traumatic brain injuries are normally examined using a neurological scale followed by a computed tomography scan to detect brain tissue damage or intracranial lesions that could require treatment, but often do not hav...

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Wednesdayapproved the first blood test to evaluate mild TBI (mTBI) or concussion.The test, called the Brain Trauma Indicator, works by measuring levels of two proteinsUCH-L1 (ubiquitin C-terminal hydrolase L1) and GFAP (glial fibrillary acidic protein). These proteins are released from the brain following a head injury and appear in the blood within hours of the injury.“A blood-testing option for the evaluation of mTBI/concussion not only provides health care professionals with a new tool, but also sets the stage for a more modernized standard of care for testing of suspected...

Advances in technology are leading to a host of innovations around reducing and detecting concussions.Today, the FDA authorized the marketing of the first blood test to evaluate mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), commonly referred to as concussion, in adults.The FDA reviewed and authorized for marketing the Banyan Brain Trauma Indicator in fewer than 6 months as part of its Breakthrough Devices Program.The Brain Trauma Indicator works by measuring levels of proteins, known as UCH-L1 and GFAP, that are released from the brain into blood and measured within 12 hours of head injury. Levels of these blood proteins after mTBI/...
