A tragedy of modern medicine has been doctors’ inability todiagnose Alzheimer’s disease. Now a stunning newnanotechnology process might make early diagnosis possible.Along with new treatments in testing, this could lelp savemillions from the living death of this disease.
A process called the Bio-Barcode-Assay can recognise ADDL,the protein that slowly destroys the brains of Alzheimersvictims. The test manipulates molecules at the nanometerscale, and is a million times more sensitive than current tests.
In the future, it might also enable extremely early testingfor various types of cancer, as well as such currentlyundiagnosable diseases as Cruetzfeld-Barr syndrome, and veryearly detection of HIV.
