Football brain injuries linked to autoimmune phenomenon

Ohio brain-injury victims and neuroscience buffs alike may take interest in new studies by the University of Rochester Medical Center and the Cleveland Clinic, which propose that some brain injuries that result in long-term brain degeneration could be attributed to an autoimmune response similar to what patients of multiple sclerosis experience. Many scientists now agree that receiving repeated, sub-concussive hits to the head, which football players often endure, could lead to brain injury disorders later on in life. However, these new studies suggest that brain injuries caused by repeated hits to the head might be caused by a response of the body's immune system rather than simply being the result of traumatic force. This recent theory states that when the body receives hits to the head, the barrier that separates the brain from the blood opens slightly. This allows some of the proteins and molecules that protect the brain from foreign substances to leak into the bloodstream, which in turn weakens the brain's protection.
