The role of nanomaterials in the treatment of cerebral palsy

from By Dr. Afsaneh Motamed-Khorasani

Although there are different causes for the development of cerebral palsy, neuroinflammation plays a major role in brain injury. At present, there is no effective cure for this disorder. Therefore, a therapeutic approach that targets the brain with minimum side effects, crosses the blood-brain barrier and affects only cells involved in injury would be beneficial. Recently, nanoparticle-based therapeutic approaches have been studied for prevention and treatment of brain injury. Nanomaterials, such as dendrimers, have the benefit of a targeted delivery for multiple drugs, which can interact with several pathways involved in injury. more
