Neuroprotective Agents Target Molecular Mechanisms of Programmed Cell Death After Traumatic Brain Injury

  • Lu-Yang TaoEmail author


The review is to update the current state of knowledge in post-TBI pathophysiological mechanisms, including programmed cell death mechanisms and mechanism-based preclinical pharmacological intervention used in animal models. Their effects on cell death, inflammatory events, and prolonged motor and cognitive deficits will be summarized, and their potential success for clinical application will be evaluated. Many of the above-mentioned mechanisms may be important targets for limiting the consequences of TBI.
