Look at abstract and link.. Advancing nanoparticle-centered imaging and therapy of brain cancer Brain cancer is among the most difficult malignancies to detect and deal with, in large part because of the difficulty in getting imaging and therapeutic agents past the so-called blood-mind barrier and into the brain. Several groups of investigators have found that nanoparticles hold guarantee for ferrying such agents into the brain , and today two new papers released in the Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics provide additional hope that nanotechnology may yield essential advancements in detecting and dealing with brain cancer. So that they can breech the blood-human brain barrier, Klaus Langer, Ph.D., and his co-workers at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany, attached apolipoprotein E , a protein that your body uses to transport cholesterol and fatty acids through the bloodstream and in to the brain, to the top of albumin nanoparticles.
