Australian Scientists Make Alzheimer’s Treatment Breakthrough Using Ultrasound Technology
Scientists at Australia's University of Queensland have found that non-invasive ultrasound technology can be used to break up neurotoxic amyloid plaques that cause memory loss and cognitive decline in persons afflicted with Alzheimer's Disease (AD), which affects more than two-thirds of dementia patients. The discovery is elucidated in a paper published in the March 11 edition of the journal Science Translational Medicine entitled "Scanning ultrasound removes amyloid- and restores memory in an Alzheimer's disease mouse model" (Sci Transl Med 11 March 2015: Vol. 7,
