THIS IS AWESOME!

A 15-year-old boy of Indian origin who lives in Britain has made us all proud.

He has developed a potential test for Alzheimer’s disease that would detect the possible outcome 10 years before the actual symptoms appear.
This is pretty amazing.

Kritin Nitiyanandam has developed a Trojan horse antibody that can penetrate the brain and attach to neurotoxic proteins that are present in the very first stages of the brain, according to Telegraph.

The antibodies are attached to fluorescent particles and are injected into the blood stream. They can be picked up on a brain scan.

The antibodies developed by this Indian-born youngster, can travel through the blood-brain barrier, handcuff the toxic proteins and prevents the further development of Alzheimer’s disease.

Kristen submitted his awesome discovery to the Google Science Fair Prize. He has made it through the final. Hats off to this young inventor.

Kristin moved to Britain from India as a baby along with his family. He had hearing problems as a child and dreams of studying medicine and changing the world for better.

Alzheimer’s disease

Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease that starts slowly and gets worse as it progresses. It cripples the person from enjoying a full-fledged healthy life and ultimately leads to death.

This new discovery can help millions around the world.

Take care
