brain1-150x150I have been a Houston brain injury lawyer for nearly thirty years and I wanted to share this information with you. Every year, nearly two million people in the United States suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Because of recent press coverage about war veterans with TBI’s more attention and research into TBI treatment is taking place. Here are some examples below.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

According to Science Daily, “Dr. Shai Efrati and Prof. Eshel Ben-Jacob of Tel Aviv University’s Sagol School of Neuroscience have proven that it is possible to repair brains and improve the quality of life for TBI victims, even years after the occurrence of the injury”. These doctors presented evidence that hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) should repair chronically impaired brain function.

According to, ” the observational study of 629 patients, conducted over the course of nearly two years, documents a diverse range of positive effects, including statistically significant rapid clinical improvement in motor impairment, spasticity, cognition, etc. in the stroke group, with a similar pattern of improvement seen in the traumatic brain injury (TBI) group.

“The study was conducted at the Institute of Neurological Recovery (INR) in the USA.

 The drug utilized was etanercept, a therapeutic that selectively binds and neutralizes an inflammatory immune molecule that may remain elevated for years following stroke. Etanercept was administered utilizing a novel delivery method, invented by Edward Tobinick M.D., lead author of the study.”


Cyclosporine is currently in phase II clinical trials for treatment of traumatic brain injury. For more information on this particular drug click Here.
