OLIVIE NEWS HEALTH: Alzheimer's disease finally detected?!
Japanese scientists have developed a new generation of brain imaging that can detect the accumulation of destructive tau protein associated with Alzheimer's disease.
This new brain imaging technology announced and decrypted in the neuron neuroscience scientific journal can identify, within the living brain, the tau protein that is closely linked to Alzheimer's disease.
The scientific team led by the National Institute of Radiological Sciences in Chiba (Tokyo) has used positron emission tomography (which allows a more detailed view of the organ interior and offers the possibility of detecting, for example, the presence of microscopic entities) to build a 3D image of tau protein in the brain. They then developed a particular chemical that binds to tau protein. This can then be detected during a brain scan.
A promising discovery
Dr. Eric Karran, director of the UK's Alzheimer's Disease Research Center, said, "This new technology is promising and could lead to new ways to diagnose the disease and test the effectiveness of new drugs... If this method proves effective, such an analysis could also be a useful aid to give people an accurate diagnosis, as well as the progression of the disease.
Alzheimer's disease and related neurodegenerative diseases remain a public health priority. No cure exists, but studies show that hydroxytyrosol, a powerful antioxidant, helps prevent this disease, along with a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
