A new study sheds light onto a fundamental mechanism underlying the development of Alzheimer's disease. Researchers believe the findings could lead to new forms of therapy for those living with the disease.
Researchers use focused ultrasound to safely and non-invasively open the blood-brain barrier in Alzheimer's patients.
Study reveals the important role astrocytes play in maintaining blood-brain barrier health.
Researchers have developed a new antibody design that can increase the uptake of antibodies to the brain by almost a 100 fold.
A new study reports an antidepressant temporarily inhibits the blood-brain barrier, allowing drugs to enter the brain. The findings could have implications for treating neurological diseases from ALS to epilepsy.
APOE4, a gene implicated as a risk factor for Alzheimer's disease, triggers leaks in the blood-brain barrier. The damage to capillaries APOE4 causes correlates with increased levels of cyclophilin, a protein that causes the inflammation that is a signature of early Alzheimer's.
Researchers have mapped cells that form the brain's blood vessels and blood brain barrier.
A new study reports leaky capillaries in the brain may be an early sign of Alzheimer's disease as it can signal cognitive impairment prior to the buildup of proteins associated with the neurodegenerative disease.
A new blood-brain barrier on a chip system is being used to study neuroinflammation, researchers report.
Researchers discover glioblastoma brain tumor cells disrupt the blood brain barrier. The findings offer potential new avenues to treat brain cancer.
