A new nanoparticle drug-delivery system resulted in unprecedented siRNA penetration across the intact blood-brain barrier. Researchers say the system could help doctors to treat secondary injuries associated with TBI that can result in Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative disorders.
A new study outlines how researchers have been able to deliver concentrated amounts of drugs directly into the brains of rats by using ultrasound.
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 microglia are responsible for maintaining and repairing the blood-brain barrier.
Study reveals the important role astrocytes play in maintaining blood-brain barrier health.
Researchers discover a way to traverse the blood-brain barrier and retinal-blood barrier to deliver a molecule which degrades the main component of Alzheimer's plaques.
Researchers discover key elements associated with tumor cells binding to blood vessels. The findings could help develop new treatments to halt the development of brain tumors.
Researchers use focused ultrasound to safely and non-invasively open the blood-brain barrier in Alzheimer's patients.
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.
Researchers discover that, in addition to their other health benefits, Omega-3 fatty acids play a vital role in protecting the integrity of the blood-brain barrier.
Researchers develop a new technique which allows drugs to be delivered across the blood-brain barrier.
A new technique, which uses acoustic pressure to help molecules pass through the BBB, could help in treatment neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.
