A clinical trial will occur in 12 U.S. cities aimed to help children who have suffered traumatic California brain injuries.
Patients must have received a severe California brain injury caused by blunt trauma, such as those caused by California auto accidents. The trial is expected to last five years and will test induced hypothermia as a therapy for brain swelling in children who have suffered a serious California head injury.
The Davis Medical Center at the University of California will be one of the main participants in the trial.
