Physicians have recognized that concussions are highly individualized and must be treated individually. In fact, the American Academy of Neurology recently named the ApoE4 genotype as a risk factor for chronic neurobehavioral impairment after concussion.
This is why we make the ApoE test available to physicians in the Athleticode Network who are developing a personalized return to play program after an athlete has suffered multiple concussions. The ApoE test offers contextual information that is helpful in the planning required in this environment.
