$1.7 Million Grant Awarded to Study Hydrocephalus Treatment

$1.7 Million Grant Awarded to Study Hydrocephalus Treatment

The National Institutes of Health has awarded a $1.7 million grant to researchers from the Loma Linda University School of Medicine to identify better treatments for hydrocephalus. Hydrocephalus is a condition where excess fluid accumulates on the brain, which may be due to a traumatic delivery, and may cause irreversible brain damage. Current treatment for hydrocephalus includes using shunts to drain fluid away from the brain, but has a high failure rate, according to John Zhang, MD, PhD, principal investigator for the study. Zhang and his team will use this grant to study whether the mechanism that produces cerebrospinal fluid can be manipulated, and thus controlled through medication, aiming to give patients a better quality of life.
