Local collaborative hopes to treat traumatic brain injuries, reduce suicides
El Paso, TX (KTSM) — University of Texas at El Paso, Fort Bliss, and a medical development company are putting their minds together to combat traumatic brain injuries.
The announcement was made on post Wednesday.
The three are using patent-pending medications and medical procedures from Premier Biomedical, Inc. to help treat injuries sustained in war that often lead to soldier suicide.
They hope this will turn into a long-term service for our local military service members.
"With our technology, and the advancements we're making on our side, we'll be at the army's disposal for use for soldiers to move forward forever," said Richard Najarian, of Premier Biomedical, Inc.
The program will be free of cost to Fort Bliss, Najarian said.
The technology is expected to treat much more than just TBI, he said.
It could help develop cures for multiple sclerosis, clinical depression, Alzheimer's disease, and cancer.
