Researchers have identified a new drug to help stop athletes from developing dementia after sustaining repeated head injuries.
The drug works to block a neurotransmitter called substance P which the brain releases in the event of a head knock.
Substance P causes an abnormal amount of a protein called hyperphosphorylated tau to collect inside neurons.
"Tau protein tangles are a feature of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), which reportedly leads to memory problems, confusion, personality changes, aggression, depression and suicidal thinking," University of South Australia Emeritus Professor Bob Vink said.
Former *NSYNC star Lance Bass and husband Michael Turchin are expecting twins
Lance Bass and Michael Turchin are going to be dads! The former *NSYNC member and his husband revealed they are expecting boy and girl twins. I t'll be the couple's first time experiencing fatherhood, after tying the knot in 2014.Bass, 42, and Turchin, 34, have been trying to become parents for years, saying in the past that having a family is something they "always dreamed of."They opened up about their IVF struggles in an interview with People, saying they had been through nine different egg donors, surrogacy attempts, failed IVF treatments. The pair's surrogate fell pregnant with twins last year but sadly miscarried.
"Our research shows that by blocking substance P with a specific drug, we can prevent the tau protein tangles from developing in the brain and causing neurological problems."
Prof Vink said the findings of researchers in Adelaide, Melbourne and the US, would potentially have significant implications for athletes who play contact sports, such as boxers and footballers, as well as military veterans sustaining head injuries in conflict.
The link between concussion and neurogenerative diseases is well established.
A study of 14,000 Americans over 25 years, published in Alzheimer's and Dementia in March, showed that people who sustained even one head injury were 25 per cent more likely to develop dementia later in life.
This risk increased with multiple traumatic brain injuries.
The new drug has been successfully tested in animals, giving hope that CTE can be prevented in humans.
Prof Vink said the next step was human clinical trials, but that could take several years.
