Immune System – A Brain Injury Friend Or Foe?

In Blood brain barrier, Brain Injury, Brain Science by Brainy Days Ahead

The immune system challenge is how to prevent or reverse the damage sustained after brain injury. These researchers  test the theory that blows to the head cause brain damage, in part, because the breakdown of the blood-brain barrier allows the immune cells in the blood to come into contact with brain cells and destroy them. Proving their theory with mice, the next step is to confirm with human trials. Faster, please.
