Transporterization: A tool for drug delivery to the central nervous system

Gábor Orgován, Béla Noszál

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Drug delivery to the central nervous system (CNS) has long been recognised as an enormous task, due to the physiological gate-keeping function of the blood-brain barrier (BBB). With the development of molecular biology, the function and properties of the BBB are better understood. In this review, transporterization, a promising method for drug delivery by endogenous proteins, is discussed, and a survey of the reported results is presented.
