Lately, various traumatic brain injury advocates have assisted in getting the Advancing Research for Neurological Diseases Act further in the U.S. Senate than ever before. Under this bill, a data collection system used to keep track of the occurrences of neurological diseases and brain injuries will be established. Many believe that this progression will allow new therapies to arise, which can provide remedies and treatments for people suffering from the following:

  • Brain injury
  • Alzheimer's
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Cancer
  • Parkinson's

In addition, new studies find that this progression has led medical professionals to nearly achieve personalized medication, which will take into account patients’ environmental, lifestyle, and unique genetic factors. If passed by legislation, biomedical research can be streamlined and modernized, which can lead to effective treatments for a countless number of Americans. Together, these efforts can provide a new foundation for the way medical professionals understand and evaluate all areas of neurological diseases, which can, in turn, expedite the journey to finding cures.

In February, the United States Senate’s Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee passed this act. The act was then filed as an amendment to the Senates’ National Defense Authorization Act. On June 15, Senate passed the act, but it did not include S. 849. As of now, the Brain Injury Association of America is committed to staying persistent in advancing the Advancing Research for Neurological Diseases Act.
