Cop in pepper spray case sues for workers' compensation

A police officer at the University of California-Davis is seeking worker's compensation for his role in the pepper-spraying of "Occupy Wall Street" activists at the university, claiming that he suffered psychiatric damage as a result of the incident.

Hormone tested for use in healing traumatic brain injuries

Researchers are currently studying whether progesterone, a natural hormone, may be used to help heal traumatic brain injuries. Progesterone, which is found in both men and women, is most commonly associated with pregnancy. Researchers in the Study of the Neuroprotective Activity of Progesterone in Severe Traumatic Brain Injuries, or SyNAPSe, hope that the hormone may be used for a traumatic brain injury treatment, reducing mortality and improving short and long-term disability from such injuries. Progesterone must be administered within eight hours of the accident, and it must be given for five or six days straight. Researchers have seen evidence that it reduces inflammation, and rebuilds the blood-brain barrier, crucial to stopping cell death in the brain. More than 150 sites in 21 countries are taking part in the study, with a goal of 1100 enrolled patients.
