MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

The development of new CNS drugs is notoriously difficult. Drugs must reach CNS target sites for action and these sites are protected by a number of barriers, the most important being the blood –brain barrier (BBB). Many factors are therefore critical to consider for CNS drug delivery, e.g. active/passive transport across the BBB, intra-brain distribution, and central/systemic pharmacokinetics, to name a few. Neurological disease and trauma conditions add further complexity because CNS barriers, drug distribution and pharmacokinetics are dynamic and often changed by disease/trauma. Knowledge of all these factors and their interplay in different conditions is of utmost importance for proper CNS drug development and disease treatment. In recent years much information has become available for a better understanding of the many factors important for CNS drug delivery and how they interact to affect drug action. This book describes small and large drug delivery to the brain with an emphasis on the physiology of the BBB and the principles and concepts for drug delivery across the BBB and distribution within the brain. It contains methods descriptions for studying drug delivery, routes and approaches of administering drugs into the brain, the influence of disease, and drug industry perspectives. Therewith, it contributes to an in-depth understanding of the interplay between brain (patho)-physiology and drug characteristics. Furthermore, the content is designed to be both cutting-edge and educational, so that the book can be used in high-level training of academic and industry scientists with full references to original publications.     ​

Back cover:

This book describes the different approaches for drug delivery to the brain with an emphasis on the physiology of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and the governing principles and concepts for drug delivery across the BBB. It contains cutting-edge methods for studying drug delivery and administering drugs into the brain. The book also explores different approaches for predicting human brain concentrations as well as the influence of disease and drug industry perspectives. In addition to wide-ranging coverage of physiological concepts relevant to central nervous system (CNS) drug delivery, a detailed review of brain structure, function, blood supply and fluids is also provided. In each chapter, descriptions of future challenges and unresolved questions are combined with points for discussion. This unique combination of material makes this book a valuable resource for students and for established academic and industry scientists looking to learn about state-of-the-art drug delivery research. It is also a source for stimulating new ideas among experts already performing CNS drug delivery research or working in related areas.
