The results generated by this study have dashed high hopes for the treatment of a problem that hits millions each year be it combat troops or car crash victims.
Every year, more than two million people are hospitalized with brain injuries. Also emergency room visits in this context are seen in large numbers each year in the United States. Such injuries are serious as they cause major disabilities.
