Brain Injury Drug Flops in Trials
Bad news from the medical community in the ongoing search for brain injury treatments: a supplement that the military had high hopes for flops during testing.
FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig reports:
A major study out of Harvard Medical School finding that a supplement marketed as a memory booster does nothing for patients with traumatic brain injuries. The U.S. military was hoping citicoline would help wounded troops since it’s already used for treatment overseas and sold over-the-counter in the U.S., but the study participants who took the high-strength supplement showed no more improvement than those who took a dummy dose.
Citicoline is a naturally-occurring compound in the brain, and also found in beef liver, eggs and wheat germ. Lab testing on animals suggested it might speed recovery from brain injuries; this new study dashing those hopes.
