Transporterization: A Tool for Drug Delivery to the Central Nervous System

Gabor Orgovan and Bela Noszal

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.
