Jerusalem – Oxygen therapy halted the build-up of plaque on the brain — a key characteristic of Alzheimer’s disease, a new study by scientists at Tel Aviv University in Israel shows. “I don’t think this can ‘cure’ Alzheimer’s in humans, but it may be able to significantly slow its progression and severity,” lead author Professor Uri Ashery from the varsity’s Sagol School of Neuroscience, was quoted as saying. “Further studies are needed, but people could possibly start benefiting from this in just a few years,” Ashery added. The team published their findings in the peer-reviewed journal Aging.
