FDA approves blood test to diagnose TBI

First blood test to help diagnose traumatic brain injuries gets FDA approval

CBS News | Feb 18, 2018

A test to help diagnose traumatic brain injury, produced by Banyan Biomarkers, has received approval from the Food and Drug Administration. The test works to detect two proteins that leak into the blood stream following a head injury, and is capable of doing so within 12 hours of when the injury took place. Patients who test positive would be referred for CT scans to confirm results and determine the course of action. Banyan Biomarker’s innovative test “sets the stage for a more modernized standard of care for testing of suspected cases,” as Gottlieb stated within the article.

 CDC Report to Congress on the Management of TBI in Children

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) in children is a significant public health problem in the United States. A traumatic brain injury disrupts the normal function of the brain, and can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or a related injury.

CDC recently released a Report to Congress on The Management of Traumatic Brain Injury in Children, which details the impact a TBI can have on children and their families. The report also:

  • Identifies gaps in care
  • Provides opportunities for action to reduce the gaps, and
  • Highlights key policy strategies to address the short and long-term consequences of a TBI.
