Title: Precision treatment of alzheimer's


(I) Alzheimer's Disease Facts and Figures, an annual report released by the Alzheimer's Association, reveals the burden of Alzheimer's and dementia on individuals, caregivers, government and the nation's health care system. Per the special report, More Than Normal Aging: Understanding Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), it is estimated 10% to 15% of individuals with MCI go on to develop dementia each year.
(II) Because of the narrow brain-blood barrier every medicine designed to treat Alzheimer's failed due to inability of complex and large molecules to penetrate this barrier.
(III) Three steps of Alzheimer’s treatment by using proprietary Magtera Technology.
First step: Detect the THz modes for Aβ42 Oligomer. or any other micro bio structures proven to be responsible for Alzheimer’s. The most probable THz modes would be intermolecular modes: librations, low frequency bond vibrations; hydrogen bond stretches and distortions; molecular rotations. There are plenty of such modes.
Second step: Find a THz window of penetration in brain fluids that corresponds to one of these modes by using the highly tunable THz Magnon Laser that bridges the THz Gap.
Third step: Apply high power THz radiation by using the THz Magnon Laser to Aβ42 Oligomer and eradicate it.
(Note: THz radiation is benign).
(IV) This could be done by using a helmet device with multiple THz Magnon lasers attached and spread around the skull so that all areas of the brain that are responsible for Alzheimer's can be covered.
In pioneering this approach, one needs a relatively small power source (up to milliwatt) of THz radiation; it must be highly tunable in order to cover the whole THz region. Also, it is necessary to find a THz propagation window that corresponds to the most attractive THz mode(s) of Aβ42 Oligomer intermolecular excitations.


Dr. Tankhilevich received his PhD in theoretical quantum magnetism from the Academy of the Sciences of former Soviet Union. After immigration to the USA, Dr. Tankhilevich founded a start-up Magtera. The prototype of the THz Magnon Laser has been fabricated in the UC Santa Barbra, USA.
The proof-of principle has been demonstrated in the Terahertz Institute for Science and Technology located at the UC Santa Barbara, USA. THz Magnon Laser technology is protected by 21 US Patents, and several European and Chinese patents.
