‘Insufficient evidence’ on degenerative brain disease in athletes

20 mayo 2015

Available research does not support the contention that athletes are uniquely at risk of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) or other neurodegenerative disorders, according to a review. Other reports have linked CTE to a history of concussions and «subconcussive impacts» during the athlete’s playing career. However, because of the limitations of case series analysis, no direct causal link between concussion and CTE has been established.
