University of Maryland researchers have identified an inflammatory process the brain undergoes in response to an injury that could better our understanding of how neurodegenerative diseases develop and potentially lead to better treatment of traumatic brain injuries. The study, published in the Journal of Neuroinflammation, found that levels of microparticles released from the brain’s immune cells, or microglia, soar in both the blood and brain following a traumatic brain injury (TBI), such as a concussion or severe blow to the head. In tests, researchers found these microparticles promoted inflammation and activated normal immune cells, making them potentially toxic to brain ... Read More
