Oxygen therapy may put a brake on Alzheimer’s: Study
- Oxygen therapy halted the build-up of plaque on the brain — a key characteristic of Alzheimer’s disease, in a mice model, as per a novel study.
- The study, by scientists at Tel Aviv University in Israel, showed that breathing pure oxygen for some time in a pressurised — or hyperbaric — chamber can boost the functioning of the human brain. In animals, the therapy helped fight the build-up of brain plaque, the Times of Israel reported.
- “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.
