Repeated head trauma, seen in competitive sports and military personnel, can lead to Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), depression, loss of emotional control, social disruption, cognitive defects, and dementia.
CTE is a progressive degenerative disease of the brain found in many with a history of symptomatic concussions as well as repeated asymptomatic sub-concussive traumas of any age.
"Given the millions of contact sport athletes and military service members exposed to repetitive head impacts each year, CTE has become a major public health concern". https://www.bumc.bu.edu/busm/2017/07/25/new-study-of-111-deceased-former-nfl-players-finds-99-percent-had-cte/
Curcumin is a non-toxic compound that has been shown to have significant anti-inflammatory activities that may have a significant positive impact upon many people with early or progressive CTE.
We have designed a brief preclinical Proof of Concept study to target Curcumin to brain cells associated with neurodegenerative changes found in CTE.
Positive findings in this study will be applied to other catastrophic neurodegenerative diseases, namely Alzheimer's, Parkinson's Disease, and Multiple Sclerosis.
