Tests to be scheduled at Mississippi State University

JACKSON CENTER, PA / ACCESSWIRE / January 31, 2023 / Halberd Corporation (OTC PINK:HALB) confirmed that animal testing at Mississippi State University (MSU) will focus on Halberd's patent-pending nasal spray to mitigate the effects of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), when administered shortly after sustaining a head Injury. The work will be conducted over the next several months under the direction of Dr. Russell Carr, of the College of Veterinary Medicine.

Following Halberd's in vitro successful eradication of each known antigen associated with head trauma, including TBI, in collaboration with Youngstown State University, in vivo studies are to commence at Mississippi State University. Funding for the program has already been approved.

Head trauma initiates a cascade of overproduction of certain proteins and inflammatory cytokines in the brain. This overproduction, depending on the magnitude of the injury, often manifests itself in neurological changes in behavior, such as PTSD, aggression and suicide ideation. Halberd's triple-action nasal spray is designed to counteract these TBI-related complications by blocking the overproduction mechanism and allowing the brain to recover naturally. The benefits of such an approach in treating head injuries to military personnel, contact sports athletes and ordinary people who experience head trauma are monumental.

Dr. Mitchell S. Felder, Halberd's Chief Technology Officer and a board-certified attending neurologist stated, "We have been very impressed by the protocol for testing traumatic brain injury in animals by the professors at Mississippi State University. What sets Halberd's nasal spray treatment apart is the ability to administer the treatment soon after injury in any setting, thus reducing the potential for serious permanent neurological damage."

William A. Hartman, Chairman, President & CEO of Halberd Corporation, added, "Selecting a source for animal testing of our anti-traumatic brain injury nasal spray was a very difficult process. Many universities we met with simply didn't have the process, experience, or expertise to conduct the tests in a manner that would yield our desired results. Mississippi State University has developed the procedures and delivered a test protocol that meets Halberd's rigid specifications. We look forward to a successful program with Mississippi State University."
