HS21-1249 Concussion study

This is a single session study looking at salivary biomarkers of concussion.

Current sports related concussion (SRC) severity determination is largely based on subjective assessments such as self-reporting measures and neurocognitive evaluations. Although these methods are considered the gold standard for SRC assessment, they are time consuming and fail to provide an accurate neurobiological conclusion of what is occurring in the brain. A non-invasive biological test could provide an objective measure of SRC severity and thus prevent athletes from returning to sport too quickly. Therefore, the goal of this study is to evaluate the association between salivary microRNA expression and symptom severity in concussed college athletes, thus providing an objective measure of injury severity and reducing the heightened risk of secondary injury in concussed athletes returning to sport too quickly.
