OBJECTIVE To evaluate the association between apolipoprotein E (APOE) polymorphisms (E2, C/T Arg158Cys; E4, T/C Cys112Arg; and promoter, g-219t) and the history of concussion in college athletes. We hypothesized that carrying 1 or more APOE rare (or minor) allele assessed in this study would be associated with having a history of 1 or more concussions. (More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the association between a neuronal structural protein polymorphism and the frequency and severity of concussions in college athletes. METHODS Forty-eight athletes with previous self-reported history of a concussion were matched with 48 controls that did not report a history of concussion. Each group was genotyped for neurofilament(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the association of the single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs74174284 within SLC17A7 promoter with concussion severity or duration. DESIGN A between-subjects design was utilized. METHODS Saliva samples and concussion severity and duration data were collected from 40 athletes diagnosed with a sport-related concussion by a(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine genetic variability within the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor 2A sub-unit (GRIN2A) gene promoter and its association with concussion recovery time. The hypothesis tested was that there would be a difference in allele and/or genotype distribution between two groups of athletes with normal and prolonged recovery. METHODS DNA was(More)
