Nanoparticle Drug-Delivery System Developed to Treat Brain Disorders

Published in Nanomachines Development.

Summary: 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.

In the past few decades, researchers have identified biological pathways leading to neurodegenerative diseases and developed promising molecular agents to target them. However, the translation of these findings into clinically approved treatments has progressed at a much slower rate, in part because of the challenges scientists face in delivering therapeutics across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and into the brain.
