Genetic Variant for Alzheimer's Disease May Increase Risk of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy After Repetitive Head Impact
Eve Bender

Postmortem analyses of brains from a brain bank found those with the genetic variant for Alzheimer's disease, apolipoprotein E4, who experienced repetitive head impact by playing football had similar pathology for chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) as athletes who played more than seven years of football.
