Concussions ‘irrelevant’ for triggering CTE

Concussions ‘irrelevant’ for triggering CTE

A new study has found further evidence linking hits to the head rather than concussions to the onset of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, other athletes and combat veterans., the neurodegenerative disease traced back to the kind of head trauma experienced by football players

 and a corresponding author of the study,“The concussion is really irrelevant for triggering CTE,” Dr. Lee Goldstein, told The Post. “It’s really the hit that counts., an associate professor at Boston University School of Medicine and College of Engineering

 this is the best scientific evidence to date,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/demetrius-harris-jersey-authentic]Authentic Demetrius Harris Jersey[/url], in fact some of the only scientific evidence,“Although that’s the headline, that we have that that’s so. . . . This is the first really solid evidence that we have where we have controlled experiments where we can make that case very strongly and convincingly.”

 a peer-reviewed journal of neurology, analyzed the brains of teenagers with head injuries and used mice to recreate head trauma, revealing more about the origins of CTE and its relationship to traumatic brain injuries (TBI), led by Boston University researchers and published Thursday in Brain,The study, concussions and subconcussive head injuries.

 including altered arousal and impaired balance, among others. Our findings provide strong causal evidence linking head impact to TBI and early CTE, independent of concussion,“The same brain pathology that we observed in teenagers after head injury was also present in head-injured mice. We were surprised that the brain pathology was unrelated to signs of concussion,” Goldstein said. “The results may explain why approximately 20 percent of athletes with CTE never suffered a diagnosed concussion.”

The study’s findings extend beyond athletics and the military.

 incarcerated populations, homeless,” Goldstein said. “It’s a big problem for the NFL,“There are many vulnerable populations at greatly increased risk of repetitive head injury including domestic abuse, a bigger problem for amateur athletics and an even larger problem still for the greater public.”

When it comes to head injuries and CTE, he says, a syndrome. You take one [symptom] from column A, is a syndrome defined “by consensus really every couple of years, based on the signs and symptoms of neurological syndrome, Goldstein spoke of three categories that are being jumbled: concussions, TBI and CTE. Concussion, what happens after you get hit in the head. It’s nothing more than that, one from column B.”

 an event,” he said. “It’s not a syndrome. It’s an event and it involves damage to tissue. If you don’t have a concussion,A TBI is different. “it is an injury, you can absolutely have brain injury and the converse is true.”

CTE is “a bona fide neurodegenerative disease. It will progress independently of whether you have future hits and a lot of people think that the injury is the disease and it’s not. There is an injury and then it goes on to spread in the brain, like other neurodegenerative diseases.”

Which means that the focus on concussion doesn’t prevent the development of CTE.

 the fourth succumbed after sustaining three sports-related concussions (26 days, 6 days and the day before death.) The last concussion came during a football game in which the player absorbed a hard tackle and landed on his helmet. Analysis of their brains showed a range of post-traumatic pathology that included one case of early-stage CTE and two cases with abnormal accumulation of tau protein,The researchers in the new study looked at the brains of four teenage athletes who had sustained closed-head impact injuries anywhere from one to 128 days before death and found the results particularly alarming. Two were 18 and two 17; two died by suicide. One died suddenly 10 days after the second of two sports-related head injuries, a CTE marker typically found in small blood vessels in the brain.

 The Tennessee Titans have finished interviewing Houston defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel, the first candidate for their head coach opening.

The Titans announced they concluded the interview early Thursday afternoon.

Tennessee is looking to replace Mike Mularkey, fired Monday after he went 21-22 and won the franchise’s first playoff game in 14 years.

 New England where he won three Super Bowl titles and Kansas City before going into coaching. He started coaching in 2011 at his alma mater,Vrabel is coming off his first season as defensive coordinator for the Texans. He played 14 years in the NFL with Pittsburgh, Ohio State. He coached linebackers and defensive linemen.

He went to Houston in 2014 and coached linebackers with the Texans for three seasons before becoming coordinator.

Texans who braved icy roads this morning first had to figure out how to scrape the wintry precipitation off their windshields.

 where inclement weather isn't common,In San Antonio, ice scrapers suddenly became a hot commodity.

 locals live by "if there's a will,Evidently, there's a way" and dug through their kitchen tools and hardware supplies until they found something that would do in a pinch.

 home to some 124,000 Dreamers and nearly 800 miles of the Mexican border,For Texas, the stakes in Friday's government shutdown showdown couldn't have been greater.

 a slew of lawmakers from the Lone Star State also found themselves in the center of the drama, with Texas U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, a Republican leader,In the front lines of the battle over immigration, serving as a top behind-the-scenes negotiator to avert a shutdown on the first anniversary of the Trump presidency.

But a final 50-49 Senate vote - posted just after midnight — fell short of the 60 needed to extend the government's funding past midnight, precipitating the second shutdown crisis of the past five years.

In the 11th hour, just five Democrats joined in voting for a stop-gap funding measure to keep the government open. Five Republicans voted no.

 a visibly flustered Mitch McConnell,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/derrick-johnson-jersey-authentic]Authentic Derrick Johnson Jersey[/url], the Senate Majority Leader, proposed another stop-gap measure keeping the government open until Feb. 8. "We'll continue to talk,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/]Womens Terrance Mitchell Jersey[/url],Moments later," he said.

Democrats said they were open to new talks, even as the White House said it would not negotiate on immigration until the shutdown ends.

"We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands," White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.

Nevertheless,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/bennie-logan-jersey-authentic]Authentic Bennie Logan Jersey[/url], House members were advised to stay in Washington for possible new votes.

 President Donald Trump,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/]Authentic Ramik Wilson Jersey[/url], who had run for office as a consummate deal-maker,Moments before the climactic Senate vote, acknowledged that that there was no deal to be had.

" he tweeted. "Dems want a Shutdown in order to help diminish the great success of the Tax Cuts,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/]Womens Bryan Witzmann Jersey[/url], "Not looking good for our great Military or Safety & Security on the very dangerous Southern Border, and what they are doing for our booming economy."

 emerged from a highly anticipated, one-on-one meeting with Trump earlier at the White House, he had no breakthrough to report,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/demetrius-harris-jersey-authentic]Womens Demetrius Harris Jersey[/url],Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer,When the Democrats' top negotiator, only "a good number of disagreements."

According to Cornyn, President Donald Trump turned down the Democratic leaders' request for a four-day extension — until Tuesday — for further talks on immigration.
Whether any deal remained to be struck in Congress still remained to be seen, with less than 12 hours before the midnight deadline for a government shutdown. It was an outcome both sides said they wanted to avoid.

 the paychecks of about 200,000 federal workers in Texas were hanging in the balance. "Paychecks will cease, and services will be disrupted, who "implored' Democrats to support a stop-gap funding deal until February 16,According to Cornyn," he said.

In the final hours of the standoff – a slow-motion game of political chicken – the two sides were hardening their respective positions: Republicans insisting on funding Trump's border wall, and Democrats holding out for a deal to protect young immigrants from deportation.

 pushing off negotiations for another month, keeping the lights on in Washington until for another 30 days – simply setting up a new deadline. As sweeteners to liberals, the stop-gap funding measure would extend the popular Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for six years; for conservatives,The deal the Republican leaders offered Democrats in the end would do neither, it would push back two Obamacare taxes.

Negotiations devolved into a blame game, and Texans were echoing many of the same points as the national leaders in both parties.

 in a House floor speech on Thursday,The Woodlands Republican Kevin Brady, chided Democrats for passing on the CHIP and Obamacare tax provisions.

 and politics are shutting this government down," said Brady,"It's regrettable because these are bipartisan issues, a close ally of Ryan and chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee.

Under an earlier deal with the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Texas received $135 million to continue the program through February.

 the people most directly hit by a closure would be the state's large military population,Apart from Dreamers and CHIP kids, which would mostly stay on duty but receive on paychecks for the duration of any funding lapse.

Social security checks would still go out – because they're not subject to annual appropriations from Congress – but national parks and other tourist sites could be closed unless the White House makes special arrangements.

Facing the uncertainty of which side the voters would blame for a government shutdown, both sides vented their frustration – and calculated the political risks.

After mollifying members of the conservative Freedom Caucus about holding fast on border security and future military spending increases – a sticking point that divided Republicans – the House voted 230 to 197 Thursday night to approve the one-month continuing resolution.

 only 11 conservative Republicans voted against the resolution, none from Texas. Among those voting with the GOP majority was San Antonio Republican Will Hurd,In the end, a top Democratic target in a heavily Latino border district in West Texas.

Cornyn has long advocated for GOP outreach to minorities. But he accused the Democrats of using their leverage to hold the entire government "hostage" for Dreamers, with whom he expressed sympathy.

000 young men and women are truly, should be, the subject of our compassion,"These 690," Cornyn said Friday evening on the Senate floor. "But why would we hold 320 million people hostage?"

 like other Republicans, argued that there was no emergency and there would still be time to negotiate a resolution to the DACA program. "We have been negotiating in good faith on a solution to the DACA recipients, and we will continue to do so,Cornyn," he said.

But it was clear in the endgame of the shutdown maneuvering that a lack of trust had permeated the talks. Democrats blamed Trump, whose remarks calling some Third World countries "shitholes" in private immigration talks earlier in the week seemed to have poised the well.

 an outspoken Trump critic, argued that Republicans, who control the White House and both chambers in Congress,Houston Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee, had to take responsibility for any government shutdown.

" she said of the temporary funding measure in the House,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/bennie-logan-jersey-authentic]Womens Bennie Logan Jersey[/url],"This is not a bill, the fourth since September. "It is an affirmation of the inability of the Republicans to govern."

Republicans countered that the onus should fall on Senate Democrats, who had the power to keep the government open.

 a Republican from Arlington who supports legislation legalizing Dreamers,Rep. Joe Barton, expressed bewilderment that Democrats would vote against a funding measure that contained nothing that they opposed.

 you vote for what's in the bill,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/derrick-johnson-jersey-authentic]Womens Derrick Johnson Jersey[/url]," he said,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/]Authentic Bryan Witzmann Jersey[/url],"Where I come from, "not what's not in the bill."

 Democrats rejected the choice between funding the government and a deal-in-the-hand to protect Dreamers. They argued its' a population that has been under the gun since Sept. 5, when Trump declared that Obama did not had the legal authority to protect them unilaterally – kicking the issue over the Congress,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/]Authentic Terrance Mitchell Jersey[/url],But in the end, where it has remained for five months.

" said El Paso congressman Beto O'Rourke,"People who say it's one or the other present a false choice,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/]Womens Ramik Wilson Jersey[/url], the Democrats' best hope of unseating Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz in 2018. "We can do both.
