Laser could be the next tool to cure Alzheimer's and other brain related diseases – Swedish study
Monday, 04 November 2013
Swedish research feel that Laser could be the next new thing to use to
cure Alzheimer and Parkinson and may other brain related diseases.There
are scientists from Chalmers University in Gothenburg who strongly feel
that such a feat is a possibility.
According to new report release earlier today, new findings from
researchers at Chalmers University of Technology and the Polish Wroclaw
University of Technology have raised hopes that doctors may one day be
able to cure the above mentioned and related brain ailments without
needing to touch surrounding brain tissue.Swedish television
For four years, Piotr Hanczyc researched on his own and discovered that
using the laser, it could cure brain diseases like Alzheimer's
Parkinson's and Creutzfeldt-Jacobs also known as mad cow diseases.
Piotr and his colleagues have shown that it is possible that by
using a special laser technique it will distinguish the unwanted
protein collections that are believed to cause diseases of the
functioning protein in the body.
“The Discovery is the first goal, the second is to remove them
without using any chemicals or damaging operations,” says Piotr Hanczyc
graduate student at Chalmers.
According to Bengt Nordén, Professor of Physical Chemistry Chalmers
University of Technology, the idea is to use a laser radiation infrared
in the region where one would not have absorption of water – that is to
create a possibility to distinguish aggregations of the proteins
thought to cause brain disease with the help of multi-photon lasers.
Hopes are now high that one could use the same treatment
technologies currently used in tomography to eliminate malfunctioning
Bengt Nordén also said that the discovery is a very big step in medicine and a basic scientific discovery.
