BHR Pharma Expands SyNAPSe® Trial into Thailand, China and Russia

HERNDON, Va., June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BHR Pharma's SyNAPSe® clinical trial is now enrolling patients suffering from severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) at 14 sites in Thailand, China and Russia.  The trial currently has 153 participating sites (Level 1 and 2 trauma centers) worldwide.

TBI is a serious public health problem that affects more than 1.7 million Americans each year. Despite significant efforts in more than 75 clinical trials over the past 20 years, there is still no approved treatment for TBI.

Previous research has shown progesterone exerts its neuroprotective effects by protecting or rebuilding the blood-brain barrier, decreasing development of cerebral edema (brain swelling), down-regulating the inflammatory cascade and limiting cellular necrosis and apoptosis (programmed cell death). 

"Unfortunately, little can be done to reverse the initial brain damage caused by a TBI. Once a TBI occurs, medical treatment focuses on p
