NEutron Capture-enhanced Treatment of neurotoxic Amyloid aggRegates

Project description

Ionising radiation treatment for Alzheimer's disease

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative condition for which no cure or effective treatments exist. Given the increase in the ageing population, AD cases are expected to rise, posing a significant socioeconomic issue. The EU-funded NECTAR project is proposing an alternative treatment for AD based on ionising radiation. The treatment entails the irradiation of the brain using an external beam of low-energy neutrons which selectively target and destroy the amyloid beta aggregates through specific enhancers capable of crossing the blood–brain barrier. The NECTAR treatment will form the basis for the future application of ionising radiation against other proteinopathies.
