Tiny transporters could deliver treatment to stroke patients – Phys.org
The brain is the only organ to have its own security system: a tightly packed network of blood vessels and barriers that allow the entry of essential nutrients while blocking other potentially harmful substances.
However, the barrier also blocks lifesaving drugs, rendering it difficult to treat a range of conditions including stroke.
Now the research carried out on mice and published today in the journal ACS Nano, shows that liposomes can potentially transport life-saving drugs across the barrier.
