TiO2 nanowired DL-3-n-butylphthalide (DL-NBP) ameliorates pathophysiology of concussive head injury
Bethune International Peace Hospital, Hebei, China
DL-3-n-butylphthalide(DL-NBP)a yellowish oil-like liquid (99.6% purified) is a Traditional Chinese Medicine used for various neurological ailments since ages. We found a new role of NBP in treating concussive head injury with regard to brain pathology. The nanowired delivery of NBP is far superior than NBP alone.
