Making nanoparticles that penetrate the blood-brain-barrier to treat brain diseases
What is it about?
Formation and characterisation of modified dextran nanoparticles and an investigation of their performance to penetrate the blood-brain-barrier
Why is it important?
Producing nanoparticles that deliver drugs to the brain is becoming increasingly attractive. Nanoparticles can be designed to pass across the blood-brain-barrier and so deliver the relevant drug directly to the brain.
