SYstematic Review on Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy Incidence for Jockeys

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) has gained significant attention in recent years due to its association with repetitive head injuries in sports, particularly in boxing and football leagues. However, there is a critical gap in our understanding of CTE incidence among jockeys, whose exposure to head trauma differs significantly in nature. This funding campaign will assist in conducting a comprehensive analysis of the current evidence base in relation to CTE among jockeys, with the aim of bringing attention to this insufficiently studied domain and advancing the health and welfare of jockeys.
