CTE and Aaron Hernandez

Tests conducted on the brain of former football star Aaron Hernandez showed severe signs of the degenerative brain disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy, and his attorney said Thursday that the player’s daughter is suing the NFL and the New England Patriots for leading Hernandez to believe the sport was safe.

Dr. Ann McKee, the director of the CTE Center at Boston University, concluded that the New England Patriots tight end had stage 3 of 4 of the disease and also had early brain atrophy and large perforations in a central membrane.

Studies prove that stem cell therapy is believed to benefit patients who have suffered traumatic brain injuries or concussions by helping to repair neural cells that have been damaged by impact or a lack of blood supply. While the body can heal itself in many ways, the brain, and other nerve cells do not heal quickly or regenerate. Stem cells have been researched for several years as a way to repair damaged nerve and brain cells.

Maybe the future of the NFL rests in the hands on stem cell therapy
