The blood brain barrier breached !

Researchers have developed in rodents nanoparticles that can cross in a very precise manner the blood-brain-barrier – the thin sealed envelope that isolates the brain. This new tool will allow the delivery of therapeutic agents to a desired location in the brain. It could be a big step in the treatment of cancer and neurodegenerative and psychiatric diseases.
