At present, several promising interventions are being tested through multicenter clinical trials, including progesterone, citicholine, and anti-apoptotic agents. This lecture will discuss clinical trial design factors as well as describe current and impending clinical trials for the treatment of traumatic brain injury.

 Learning Ojbectives: 
• Discuss the current active multicenter clinical trials in traumatic brain injury.
