Novel therapeutic for concussions will be studied with leading hospital and university partners

January 28th, 2021, New York, NY – MEND today announces that it has been awarded a research grant by the Special Operations Command to study a novel therapeutic for mild to moderate traumatic brain injury (mTBI) and to conduct a multi-center randomized placebo controlled trial. The study will be executed by leading hospitals and universities, including Geisinger Health System, Penn Medicine and University of Iowa.

The patented formula “MEND Neuroprotect™” made in a ready-to-drink format, promises to be both preventative, thereby reducing neurological damage from concussive impacts, and therapeutic, thereby encouraging superior healing and recovery post concussive impacts. “The science shows that Neuroprotect has the potential to be a breakthrough solution in concussion prevention and management” says MEND founder and CEO, Eziah Syed “DoD and our hospital partners are all excited and optimistic about the implications for soldiers, patients and athletes and eager to execute our clinical trials.”
