The long-term goal of the Mission Connect Mild Traumatic Brain Injury mTBI Translational Research Consortium was to improve the diagnosis and treatment of mTBI. We enrolled a total of 88 mTBI patients and 73 orthopedic injury OI control patients into observational studies, and a total of 50 mTBI patients in a clinical trial. The patients were enrolled within 24 hours of their injury, and followed for up to 6 months for the observational studies, and for 3 months for the clinical trial. The data that has been collected as a part of our study is potentially valuable to other investigators because it includes very early assessment of neurological statuswithin 24 hours of injury and long-term 6 months follow-up. The data includes neuropsychological assessment, advanced magnetic resonance imaging, electroencephalogram, and magnetoencephalogram in addition to detailed clinical information about the patient and the injury severity. The goal of the current funding was to submit the clinical data to FITBIR so that it could be made available to other investigators not involved in the project in order to accelerate research.
