Brain injury treatable with optimization of ProgesteroneProgesterone is under testing stage by researchers aiming to optimize the effectiveness of this hormone to treat patients suffering from traumatic brain injury.

Two abstracts highlighting Emory research on the hormone were presented at the 2009 Society for Neuroscience (SFN) meeting in Chicago.

This trial was developed by Donald Stein, PhD, Asa G. Candler Professor of Emergency Medicine at Emory School of Medicine.

The study authors noted that a low amount of Vitamin D can boost ability of progesterone to protect neurons from excito-toxicity, which is a principal cause of brain injury and cell death.

progesterone-optimized-for-treating-brain-injuryResearchers are moving ahead by testing progesterone in the quest to optimizing the effectiveness of the hormone for treating traumatic brain injury.

In this direction, two abstracts summarizing Emory research on the hormone were presented at the 2009 Society for Neuroscience (SFN) meeting in Chicago.

A multisite phase III clinical trial called ProTECT III will be initiated for examining the effectiveness of the hormone in the coming few months. The trial was developed by Donald Stein, PhD, Asa G. Candler Professor of Emergency Medicine at Emory School of Medicine.

It was noted by the authors that a low amount of Vitamin D has the ability to boost progesterone’s ability to guard neurons from excito-toxicity, which is a principal cause of brain injury and cell death.

  Beef consumption by mothers can lead to reduced sperm count in children

Beef consumption by mothers can lead to reduced sperm count in childrenA new research has noted that women who ate large quantities of beef while in the stage of pregnancy had sons more likely to have poor sperm quality when adults.

It was suggested that growth promoters used in cattle could be the factor behind this reduced fertility situation.

Professor Shanna Swan, the lead author of the study that is published online in Human Reproduction journal, said that the findings suggest that maternal beef consumption is associated with lower sperm concentration and possible sub-fertility, which may have been influenced by the presence of anabolic steroids and other xenobiotics in beef.

It is expected that the reported intriguing relationship would stimulate further research for investigating the association between maternal beef consumption during pregnancy stage and sperm concentration in the male offspring.

Progesterone improves outcomes for traumatic brain injury patientsAccording to a new study, administration of progesterone for traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients immediately after the injury appears to be a safe option and can considerably minimize the degree of disability and risk of death.

Researchers from the Emory University suggested that the progesterone treatment for traumatic brain injury has been extensively studied in lab animals for almost more than fifteen years. It was revealed that this form of treatment can significantly minimize swelling of the brain besides enhancing functional outcomes, and preventing nerve death.

The study suggested that progesterone is highly imperative for the development of neurons in the brain in a normal manner besides exerting protective effects on the damaged brain tissue.
