Chronic exposure to low levels of blast may be associated with neurotrauma

(Walter Reed Army Institute of Research) WRAIR scientists demonstrated that TBI biomarkers were elevated among law enforcement and military personnel, including those without a diagnosed brain injury or concussion, repeatedly exposed to low level blast. Repeated exposure have been linked to a series of reported symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, dizziness, memory difficulties, and tinnitus. Researchers hope these data are the first step to identifying objective biomarkers as clinically relevant diagnostic tools.
