New Alzheimer’s Treatment Promising for Restoring Memory Function

A team from the Queensland Brain Institute (QBI) has come up with a pretty promising treatment for removing the build-up of plaques in an Alzheimer’s patient’s brain, which cause the disease.

The method uses non-invasive ultrasound technology to clear the plaques away. Initial tests report fully restoring the memory function of 75 percent of the mice that were tested with zero damage to surrounding brain tissue. The treated mice showed improvement in navigating a maze, recognition of new objects and remembering the places they should avoid. Learn more about this revolutionary study here>>
