In mild TBI, which accounts for approximately 85% of all cases, the role of the APOE-epsilon4 allele is less clear. Studies completed to date have relied on brief cognitive assessments or coarse measures of global functioning, thereby limiting their conclusions. Our study investigated the influence of the APOE-epsilon4 allele in a prospective… CONTINUE READING
