Prof. David Edwards was interviewed on the BBC Discovery program today.
His research is on brain damage to infants caused by oxygen deprivation
during delivery. Results based upon Magnetic Resonance Imaging suggest
that major brain damage occurs about eight hours after deprivation.
This seems to be some kind of cell self-destruction caused by glutamate
and NO metabolism. Growth factor can reduce this type of injury.
