Science has a lot to tell everyday and thus recently, spice turmeric of synthetic derivative has been created at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies by scientists can Previously turmeric studies had shown and proved that it acts as preventative for prostate cancer. In United States, Schematic stroke is among the leading and main reasons for disability and not just this; it is also the third known reason for the death of people that are old. Studies have also shown that traumatic brain injury, which is a brain injury, is the top most reason for deaths and major brain disability in both locals and military officials that are below the age of 45 in United States. Either civilians or military men in both cases, those who live on these diseases are often having serious issues regarding memory deficits and behavior.

Tissue Plasminogen Activator:

(TPA) is the only FDA treatment that is approved useful to some extent for strokes, and it is works in only cases up to 20%. In other words, mostly people have to depend on this treatment as there are no other treatments for traumatic brain injury cases so far. Recently, a new compound was developed by the Salk researches, by means of a fresh drug invention method.

This method begins using natural products that are derived from plants. Later, Synthetic derivatives of these compounds were studied and observed by researchers that tested them against different characteristics of the nerve cells injure and fatality which takes place in brain damages as well as in age-mentioned neuron degenerative sicknesses. CNB-001 that is a compound and was made and extracted from "Curcumin" that is an active element of the spice turmeric demonstrated to be very neuron protective in approximately most cases.

Moreover, it improved memory issues in unaffected animals too. Advanced research and studies by researchers confirm the usefulness of CNB-001 that was less for traumatic brain injury in averting the deficits of human behavior that are resulted by stroke. Research also established that dissimilar from traumatic brain injury that decreases clotting in brain that takes place in the blood vessels, the Salk mixture has a straight defensive impact on the brain and it's nerve cells. Pamela Maher, who is a researcher for this study, stated that it contains particular cell signalling pathways that are needed for nerve cell life.

Likewise, in a different research, scientists at the University of California, which is located in Los Angeles, made use of a rodent form of traumatic brain injury to display that CNB-001 fundamentally overturned the behavioral shortages in locomotion as well as in memory, which escort the brain damage. And as through stroke, it was CNB-001 that was found again to preserve the serious signalling pathways needed on behalf of nerve cell life, and for the links amid nerve cells, which are gone with the damage. The outcomes of both the studies recommend that the complex has medical probability for other neurological situations where there is recently no helpful treatment.

"Existing drug therapies for complex neurological conditions such as stroke and Alzheimer's disease target only one aspect of the condition, while in fact many different factors contribute to the pathology," stated Salk's David Schubert. "In the drug discovery program our lab uses at Salk, drug candidates must show efficacy in tissue culture models of several aspects of the condition before they are introduced into animal models. We believe that this approach is making an important difference in the discovery of effective drugs." More studies are still on their way to improve this system of treatment to help patients that are and have been suffering on only one method of treatment, the method that was bringing on 20 percent of success results.
