Title : Recent advances in the understanding of the pathophysiology of neurotrauma


Traumatic brain injury is an important concern in the realm of neurological diseases. At present, our understanding of TBI and its downstream effects both acutely and chronically is limited, although in the past decade, many recent advancements have presented. Current treatment regimens have largely followed academic society guidelines with a special emphasis on intensive care unit management. Its diverse etiology in disease presentation has lent its way to difficulty in seeing promising advancements succeed in clinical development, although our understanding of this disease course and the therapeutic targets currently in development continues to grow. These areas of interest include excitotoxicity, oxidative stress, blood brain barrier disruption, neuroinflammation, and white matter degeneration. At present, emerging treatments have included cell-based therapies and the neuroprotective agents focused on recovery following inflammatory damage. The current review highlights in detail the advancements in our understanding in the pathophysiology of TBI, the current treatment regimens, and the emerging treatments in development.
