Advances in Non-Invasive Drug Delivery to the Brain
Part of the Pharmaceutical Science and Technology eBook Collection
Edited by Richard Egleton
Understanding of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) has increased dramatically in recent years, but we are still unable to effectively deliver drugs across the BBB to treat neurological disorders. In the ten chapters of this book, experts discuss the pressing issues, the strategies that have been used to ‘outsmart’ the barrier, and the discovery of future targets that may provide new delivery options. The book highlights potentially fruitful strategies to improve therapeutic drug delivery to the brain, emphasizing that a rational pairing of the delivery mechanism and therapeutic agent is key to the development of effective treatments for neurological disorders.
