Today on Nate and Creight, Dr. Jesse Mez caught up with the guys and talked about the latest findings from his CTE study. What he found was quite shocking to say the least. 110 out of 111 patients that participated in the study were found to have CTE. Dr. Mez emphasized that more research is critical, and we have a long way to go in the battle with CTE. Going forward, he hopes to expand diagnosis and research of the disease. One thing that will help with that is finding more willing participants from the football community to take part in the research.

Finally, the next step is to find out what the prevalence of this disease is within the population, understand the relationship between the disease and football, and eventually develop therapies.
