Speaker: Kenneth Proefrock, NMD Common conditions of the central nervous system, such as trauma, neurodegeneration, multiple sclerosis, stroke, and brain tumors represent a huge medical need. According to a World Health Organization report, about 1.5 billion people globally are suffering from neurological diseases. Drug therapies for neurological conditions are particularly inefficient, primarily due to the selectivity of the blood-brain barrier. Liposomes are nano- or micro-sized vesicles consisting of one or more lipid bilayers surrounding an aqueous compartment. They have emerged as promising therapeutic delivery systems that can cross the blood-brain barrier and allow for targeted delivery of nutrients and other therapies to the central nervous system.
