Abstract

Using a prospective, randomized, blinded, placebo-controlled protocol, the authors demonstrated that Cerebrolysin at doses of 0.8-7.5 ml/kg, administered 4 hours after injury and then once daily for a total of 10 consecutive days, improves long-term functional outcomes in a rat model of mild closed head injury; a 2.5-ml/kg dose was identified as optimal. These findings suggest that Cerebrolysin has the potential to treat mild traumatic brain injury, the incidence of which is high without effective treatments.
