Japanese breakthrough in the Alzheimer's mystery

4 years ago32 views

Researchers in Japan have developed a pioneering brain imaging technology that can detect the build-up of proteins linked to Alzheimer's disease.

The problem for medics is Alzheimer's begins to kill the brain long before any symptoms are detected, so any drugs administered are given too late.

The research could lead to the early detection of the illness and a potential cure.
