Roles of nanomedicine in clinical neuroscience

Abstract :

One of the most promising applications of nanomedicine principles is in clinical neuroscience, particularly in the treatment of glioblastomas and neurological disorders (epilepsy, Parkinson's disease; Alzheimer's disease, etc.). Here, speciallydesigned nanoparticles (NPs) delivered by specially-designed nanocarriers are able to cross the blood brain barrier to deliver their payload at pre-defined location(s) according to specified time- and dose-fractionations while remaining unnoticed by the immune system. I will discuss the several NPs utilized and their corresponding clinical advantages, including: nutshells (that can be targeted to bond to cancerous cells by conjugated antibodies or peptides to anopheles' surfaces); platelet-coated NPs (that can deliver higher doses of medication drugs to targeted sites, thus greatly enhancing their therapeutic effects); biocompatible and biodegradable gelatin NPs (that can deliver multiple drugs); and shape-shifting engineered NPs (that can can be tailored to deliver drugs to specified tumors and nowhere else).
