1. Blood-Brain Barrier Transport : Investigation of Active Efflux using Positron Emission Tomography and Modelling Studies
Sammanfattning : This thesis examines the transport of exogenous molecules across the blood-brain barrier (BBB), focusing on active efflux, using positron emission tomography (PET), computer simulation and modelling. P-glycoprotein (P-gp) inhibition was studied using [11C]verapamil and [11C]hydroxyurea was investigated as a new marker for active efflux transport. LÄS MER
2. Quantitative Aspects of Nanodelivery Across the Blood-Brain Barrier : Exemplified with the Opioid Peptide DAMGO
Sammanfattning : The use of nanocarriers is an intriguing approach in the development of efficacious treatment for brain disorders. The aim of the conducted research was to evaluate and quantify the impact of a liposomal nanocarrier formulation on the brain drug delivery. LÄS MER
3. Pericyte Influence on Drug Delivery Across the Blood-Brain Barrier : Implications for Therapy of Neurodegenerative Diseases
Sammanfattning : The blood-brain barrier (BBB) represents a complex interface between the brain parenchyma and systemic blood circulation, strictly controlling exchange of substances between the two sites. Pericytes are mural cells located on the abluminal membrane of the brain endothelium, involved in BBB formation and maintenance. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The developmental aspect of drug transport across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) was investigated. Microdialysis was used to study unbound morphine BBB transport at different ages in sheep. An in vitro study was performed to find differentially expressed genes in brain capillary-rich fractions of the brain in rats of different ages. LÄS MER
5. In Vivo Active Drug Uptake and Efflux at the Blood-Brain Barrier : With Focus on Drug Transport Interactions
Sammanfattning : The blood-brain barrier (BBB) controls the movement of substances into and out of the brain. The tight junctions between endothelial cells and energy dependent transporters in the BBB influence rate and extent of drug distribution to the brain. LÄS MER
