Potential Alzheimer’s treatment would use high-frequency terahertz radiation

Accumulation and deposition of amyloid can cause a variety of neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. The degradation of this accumulation is the most widely accepted therapeutic strategy. The study on amyloid-β (Aβ) oligomers in vitro found that high-frequency terahertz (THz) wave at a specific frequency could be served as a physical, efficient, nonthermal denaturation way to delay the fibrotic process with a speed of 80 per cent.
