El Paso-based Premier Biomedical, Inc. last week announced that the company had participated in the Coalition for Concussion Treatment (C4CT) Summit along with other major influencers during Super Bowl Week. The Summit, which was established by Brewer Sports International and held at the UN Headquarters in New York City, brought Brewer together with Premier after a previous announcement that the two organizations have entered into a long-term strategic partnership agreement to continue to explore innovative treatment methods for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and other neurological diseases.
The Summit also involved current and former National Football League (NFL) players, doctors, neurologists, NFL team physicians, as well as private sector leaders involved in head trauma, the NFL Players Association (NFLPA), and the Chief Medical Officers from the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the NFL Retired Players Association (NFLRPA) — all gathered together in a bid to address the increasing concerns related to TBI and professional sports. Premier Biomedical representatives included William A. Hartman, President and CEO, Richard T. Najarian, Chief Investment Officer and V.P. Alzheimer’s/ALS/TBI Division and Jay Rosen, Board of Directors member.
Premier Biomedical President William Hartman commented: “This was an excellent opportunity to meet with important decision makers at the NCAA and NFL affiliated organizations and to expose them to the progress we are continuing to make with our partners in R&D, the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) and the Department of Defense (DOD) with Center of Expertise at the William Beaumont Army Medical Center” adding that, “Our objective to develop tests and cures for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and the resultant neurological diseases that ensue from such injuries to sports participants as well as current active duty military personnel and veterans was acknowledged by attendees and their technical representatives who described our technology as being ‘novel and paradigm-changing’. We are committed to ultimate success in this race to find a cure. New relationships are being sought with prospective partners that will bring the sports community together with us to find a cure for TBI and its dreadful long-term neurological effects.”
For their part, Brewer Sports International has stated that it is thrilled to have another partner to help develop best practices against TBI and other neurological diseases as part of its ongoing C4CT movement. Premier Biomedical stands behind its approach to develop a cure for Traumatic Brain Injury and the associated neurological diseases associated with concussion.
