Blood Test Detects Concussion, London Duo Discover

Two London co-investigators have arrived at a concussion-detecting blood test.

Dr. Douglas Fraser, a physician in the pediatric critical care unit at Children’s Hospital, and Mark Daley, a professor of computer science, biology and statistics and actuarial sciences at Western University, have discovered the breakthrough.

A simple blood test taken from a finger, the duo have uncovered, can determine whether or not an adolescent athlete has suffered a concussion.

The duo say there is more work to be done with their breakthrough discovery, which they say has a certainty greater than 90 per cent.

The international journal, Metabolomics, has published their work. It’s posted online here.
