Recent Studies from Brigham and Women's Hospital Add New Data to Alzheimer Disease (Science to Practice: Opening the Blood-Brain Barrier with Focused Ultrasound-A Potential Treatment for Alzheimer Disease?)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Clinical Trials Week Investigators discuss new findings in Neurodegenerative Diseases. According to news reporting originating in Boston, Massachusetts, by NewsRx editors, the research stated, "Burgess et al (1) present intriguing results of repetitive transient opening of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) in a transgenic mouse model of advanced Alzheimer disease (AD)."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Brigham and Women's Hospital, "The results underscore the potential of using magnetic resonance (MR) imaging-guided focused ultrasound and microbubble ultrasonography (US) contrast agents for the disruption of the BBB as a potential long-term therapy to reduce amyloid plaque burden and improve cognitive performance. This daring conclusion that is based on an experimental animal model should now be confirmed in humans."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Considering that the technology is commercially available and given the immense clinical need, clinical trials in this AD treatment should be initiated as soon as possible."

For more information on this research see: Science to Practice: Opening the Blood-Brain Barrier with Focused Ultrasound-A Potential Treatment for Alzheimer Disease? Radiology, 2014;273(3):631-633. Radiology can be contacted at: Radiological Soc North America, 820 Jorie Blvd, Oak Brook, IL 60523, USA. (Hindawi Publishing - www.hindawi.com; Radiology - www.hindawi.com/journals/rrp/)
