A New Treatment for Alzheimer’s is Said to Restore Full Memory Function : Science : News Every Day
Here is another article (below) on the study testing targeted ultrasounds to treat Alzheimer’s disease. I’m so anxious to hear updates on this particular study. The article doesn’t have too much new to offer, but is does say that the studies on mice shows 75% of those studied received FULL memory restoration.
The next testing will be done on other animals, with human trials to begin in 2017.
My only question is, since the ultrasound is fairly risk free, why can’t they go ahead and try is on some humans? Perhaps there are side effects that haven’t been mentioned, but I imagine there would be a wealth of volunteers in the early stages who would gladly test the treatment.
Alas, rules are rules. Still, I will be watching this study closely. It seems so innovative.
According to an article on Science Alert, a group of researchers from Australia created a new, non-invasive method that uses ultrasound technology for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.
