CTE is a degenerative disease that has been linked to multiple brain injuries.
However, scientists have not yet been able to definitively show whether CTE exists in the brains of people who have suffered from CTE.
Now, researchers at the University of Texas have found evidence that CTE does exist in people who do not have the disease.
In the new study, published today in PLOS Medicine, researchers analyzed data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, or NHANES III.
This data collected information on more than 6,000 people in the U.S. who had had a brain scan between 2010 and 2014.
They also compared that information with data from more than 1,500 people with CTE and other forms of dementia.
“The CTE patients in this study were much more likely to have CTE than the controls,” says coauthor Richard Deutsch, PhD, the study’s senior author.
Deutsch is the professor of psychiatry and neurology at UT Austin.
He was part of the research team that studied the brains and brains of CTE sufferers.
He says the findings support the idea that CFS patients might have CTS.
“CFS is a neurodegenerative disease,” Deutsch says.
“It’s a neuroinflammatory disease that leads to the loss of cognitive function.
There’s also evidence that it can lead to the development of other types of brain damage.”
CTE, also known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy or CTE-related dementia, is characterized by repeated repetitive brain trauma.
It can affect individuals of all ages, including those with a higher risk of developing dementia.
In a 2016 study published in the journal Science, researchers found that the brains in people with a diagnosis of CTS were about two times more likely than those without it to have elevated levels of a protein called amyloid beta.
That protein is produced by damaged or missing neurons in the brain.
Researchers also found that people with Alzheimer’s disease had higher levels of amylid beta than those with CFS.
Deitsch says CFS sufferers might be more susceptible to Alzheimer’s because the disease is associated with memory loss and other problems that can cause memory loss.
But CTE doesn’t have that same impact on the brain and therefore does not appear to cause dementia.
He notes that the current study focused on people with severe cases of CFS, but that the disease could potentially affect anyone who is at risk for the disease, including people who are already taking medications to help regulate blood sugar levels.
Deutch says he hopes to find more research on CTE in people without CFS in the future.
“What we’re trying to do is use the latest science to figure out if it exists, if it’s really the case, if the disease really is present in the population,” he says.
