EL PASO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Premier Biomedical, Inc. (OTCBB: “BIEI”) a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing innovative treatment therapies for cancer, traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer’s disease, and other afflictions announced today that they have initiated discussions with William Beaumont Army Medical Center (WBAMC) at Ft. Bliss, TX toward initiating staged clinical trials to treat soldiers suffering from head trauma leading to clinical depression (PTSD) and possible resultant suicide/homicide ideation. This follows and builds on the successful laboratory work completed by the company and its affiliates to date to measure and eliminate specific molecular compounds from cerebral-spinal fluid (CSF) believed to be responsible for these afflictions.
William Hartman, President and CEO of Premier Biomedical stated, “The Department of Defense vetted us and our technology for three years before partnering with Premier Biomedical and the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) to work together as a team to solve this pressing problem. The Veterans Administration estimated that one active-duty person per day commits suicide as a result of this problem; counting veterans, this number jumps to almost one suicide per hour, 24 hours per day, 365 days per year! We are excited to take this next further step together involving staged clinical trials to bring us that much closer to developing a cure for those who are suffering the effects of head trauma-related incidents. This has huge potential health ramifications for our soldiers and the American public as a whole, particularly those injured during sports participation.”
