An artificial blood-brain barrier model that has been constructed by researchers at Uppsala University is quick and accurate, and it may be used to assess how well antibody-based treatments can reach the brain. The new model may lessen the requirement for animal testing, which is now the mos

Washington [US], August 17 (ANI): Researchers have made a surprising discovery linking Delta/Notch signalling in subperineurial glia (SPG) to the regulation of nerve ensheathment and neurotransmitter release at the Drosophila neuromuscular junction (NMJ). SPG, the counterpart of the endothel

Washington [US], July 6 (ANI): The findings of a new study suggest that nanomaterials found in consumer and health-care products can pass through the bloodstream to the brain side of a blood-brain barrier model with varying ease depending on their shape.
