Dementia symptoms reversed in mice, human trials next

Dementia patients could soon have their memory restored and symptoms of the disease reversed thanks to a study in Queensland.

Researchers found a way to fully restore function in mice brains. Researchers found they can blast away “toxic plaque” using “micro-bubbles and ultrasound. $10 million in federal funding will allow the method to be tested on patients.

Researchers have found they can blast away the “toxic plaque” from the brain using non-invasive, non-toxic treatments and an ultrasound.

So far, scientists at the Queensland Brain Institute have been able to inject “micro bubbles” in the brains of mice which, when used with an ultrasound, fully restored their brain function.

Professor Jugen Gotz said the breakthrough was completely unexpected.
