Handling the disease known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy.

The CTE disease is detected at autopsy using immunohistochemical staining technology. Pathologists search for a protein that occurs naturally in the body and is responsible for stabilizing nerve cells. There are many conditions in which the protein gathers in the brain; even just by aging. Media focus on CTE has brought public awareness to a subject that might otherwise be relegated to the world of medical literature. This white paper reviews studies on chronic traumatic encephalopathy in football players and the gap linking head injuries and neuropathological findings of CTE.
