The former N.F.L. star Tony ..., 25 Dec 2013 [cached]
The former N.F.L. star Tony Dorsett says he has C.T.E. KEITH SRAKOCIC / ASSOCIATED PRESS The debate over the scientific validity of such brain exams was highlighted recently when Tony Dorsett, a Hall of Fame running back for the Dallas Cowboys, and several other prominent former players said they were found to have C.T.E. after taking the experimental test developed by U.C.L.A. Dorsett, 59, told CNN that "they came to find out I have C.T.E." and that his memory lapses, short temper and moodiness were "all because of C.T.E." Despite what was widely reported as a diagnosis, the experimental test is perhaps years from gaining federal approval. An antidote is even more remote because C.T.E. is a degenerative condition with no known cure. That is why neurologists, researchers and bioethicists question whether the doctors at U.C.L.A. and at TauMark, the company with the exclusive license to commercialize the test, may leave some former players and their families with false hopes or undue worry. For instance, the website for TauMark, which has helped find retired players to take the test, states that the test could soon provide a "clinical diagnosis and summary. One of the doctors backing TauMark called the test "the holy grail of C.T.E." Tony Dorsett (33) and several other former N.F.L. players said they were found to have C.T.E. after taking an experimental test.
More former players have reportedly inquired about taking the test after comments made by Dorsett and by other players, including the Hall of Famer Joe DeLamielleure and the former All-Pro defensive lineman Leonard Marshall.
