HARTFORD, Conn.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Eric Knight, widely known for novel inventions, business innovations, and aerospace endeavors, believes he has invented a method with the potential to treat Alzheimer's disease -- a disease that has thwarted the world's leading scientists and medical professionals.
In a press statement issued today, Knight said, "Alzheimer's is one of the most dreadful diseases, cruelly stripping away a person's humanity and ripping apart the fabric of families. A staggering 5.2 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease; it is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S. Compounding the human pain, Alzheimer’s disease drains the American economy by over $200 billion per year in health-care costs. It’s an international crisis, as well, affecting 35 million people, worldwide. This human and economic tragedy must end."
Knight continued, "Three-and-a-half years ago, I began working on an invention that appears to have the potential to remove from the brain the beta-amyloid 'plaque' associated with Alzheimer's disease. I completed my first prototype in 2010, and continued my research and development to the point where I could patent the device. My therapeutic system applies simple radio waves in a particular method via aerospace-inspired technology. So, in effect, I've applied 'rocket science' in a new and novel way to create this Alzheimer's treatment technique."
Knight has a broad-ranging patent application pending on his invention to treat Alzheimer's disease.
Knight added, "I believe an invention of this potential magnitude needs to go into clinical trials as rapidly as possible. We need to find out if my invention will indeed show promise and prove clinically viable to the millions of individuals afflicted with Alzheimer's disease. I’m pleased to unveil my invention during World Alzheimer’s Month. I’m looking for one or more industry partners with the wherewithal to take the next steps."
Knight concluded, "It's not hyperbole to say this invention, if it proves itself, may be worth hundreds of millions of dollars. But money is not my driving motivation. Far from it. At this stage in my business career, I'm focused on innovations that help people wherever and whenever I can. That's my greatest reward."
