Scientists Developing First Hydrocephalus Drug

In December 2017, researchers in Indiana received a $1.8 million grant to develop the first drug treatment for hydrocephalus after an unexpected discovery working with rodents in the lab. “The drug we were targeting for their kidney disease actually worked better for the brain,” Indianapolis physiologist Bonnie Blazer-Yost said. The federal funding will help her team develop a drug to treat the buildup of cerebral spinal fluid in the brain, known as hydrocephalus, and investigate its causes. Hydrocephalus can occur as a result of head trauma during birth among other things.
