TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury)

TBI is a very common condition affecting all ages. The impact both figuratively and literally is measured in loss of quality of life as well as suicidal outcomes. Witness the tragic deaths of so many NFL players from complications of TBI.

RH Nano believes a major driving factor leading to neuronal loss in TBI is an inflammatory process that starts off as “healing” reaction to the trauma, but then deadly consequences from an “overactive” immune system leading to brain cell death.

An animal model of TBI done at the Armed Forces Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland showed quite convincingly the use of Salsalate results in significant improvement in post TBI in mice.

RH Nano is working to secure funding from the Dept of Defense and Veterans Administration to support the testing in the “field of battle” an IV formulation called IV Nanosal to be administered as soon as feasible after a traumatic brain injury in the field.

Precious hours are lost waiting for the wounded TBI soldier to receive medical attention so long after the brain injury.
