New medicine trial to continue

Since November 2011, Harrison has been on a trial of a medicine to assist brain injury recovery. The drug is normally used for assisting patients with sleep. But discovery by accident in South Africa 11 years ago, that it has a different affect for patients with brain injury. Harrison has been having slow increases of the drug, to reach a therapeutic level. Currently Harri has 3 doses a day, is not falling asleep, but is engaging more with his teachers and teacher aids at school. It is very encouraging. We may need to continue the trial for at least a 12 month period to see more significant results. We have spoken to Harri's specialist and he is happy for Harri to continue the trial and review in 3 to 4 months.
Regards Matt
