Nanoparticles May Detect Alzheimer's, Reversal Of Memory Loss

Abstract:
Researchers have discovered for the first time in humans the presence of neurotoxic peptide assemblies that may be responsible for the memory loss found in individuals suffering from Alzheimer's disease (AD). The next step is to develop clinical diagnostics -- using nanoparticles -- to detect the amyloid beta-derived diffusible ligands (ADDLs), and effective drugs that prevent the onset of AD, delay its progression, and potentially restore cognitive function in patients with memory-related disorders, as reported in NanoBiotech News.
