Brain Targeted Drug Delivery Systems: A Focus on Nanotechnology and Nanoparticulates provides a guide on nanoparticulates to both academic and industry researchers. The book discusses key points in the development of brain targeted drug delivery, summarizes available strategies, and considers the main problems and pitfalls evidenced in current studies on brain targeted drug delivery systems. As the brain is the most important organ in the human body, and disorders of the central nervous system (CNS) are the most serious threat to human life, this book highlights advances and new research in drug delivery methods to the brain.




  • Provides an overview of brain targeting drug delivery that is useful to both academic and industry-based researchers
  • Discusses key points in developing brain targeting drug delivery systems
  • Summarizes and presents currently available strategies for brain targeting drug delivery
  • Covers not only current studies and their strengths, but also gives insight into the pitfalls of current research
