NeuroSigma and the U.S. Veterans Administration Enter into Cooperative Research and Development Agreement
Oct 15 14
NeuroSigma, Inc. announced that it has entered into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the U.S. Veterans Affairs (VA) for a clinical trial to evaluate the benefits of non-invasive, external Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation (eTNS) for patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) in a Phase I clinical trial. The Monarch eTNS System is composed of a cell-phone sized pulse generator and a single-use patch that is applied to the forehead. Signals are transmitted through lead wires to the patch in order to stimulate the trigeminal nerve in the skin of the forehead; triggering these nerve fibers sends signals to targeted brain regions and changes the activity there. Patients may conveniently self-administer the Monarch eTNS System at home and typically use the device while sleeping.
