The Might Be the Breakthrough We’ve All Been Hoping For…Paige Turner
A major breakthrough occurred recently in the frontlines of the battle against Alzheimer’s. A team of researchers from the Queensland Brain Institute (QBI) at the University of Queensland has discovered a non-invasive ultrasound technology that clears neurotoxic amyloid plaques from the brains of mice.
These plaques are largely believed to be responsible for the onset and progression of Alzheimer’s Disease.
Mice brains and human brains are not the same, of course, and there are many more trials for this new treatment to face before it could ever be seen in humans, but breakthroughs like this continue to give hope that we can someday beat Alzheimer’s disease.
