Magnetic resonance platform to open the Blood-Brain Barrier

Technology Area: Medical Devices

Commercial Maturity: Prototype

Abstract: Brain tumors are extremely lethal and incredibly invasive. Despite many efforts, drug delivery to the brain remains a challenge mainly because the Blood-Brain Barrier(BBB)is insurmountable for most therapeutic molecules. We propose a non-invasive approach to traverse therapeutic agents across the BBB using magnetic nanoparticles guided by a modified MRI scanner.
