  1. 6. Stereoselective Transport of Drugs Across the Blood-Brain Barrier (BBB) In Vivo and In Vitro : Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Studies of the (S)- and (R)-Enantiomers of Different 5-HT1A Receptor Agonists and Antagonists

    Author : Hongmei Yan; Lennart Paalzow; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosciences; pindolol; propranolol; 2- di-n-propylamino tetralin; racemate; enantiomer; drug distribution; brain; rat; blood-brain barrier; Neurovetenskap; Neurology; Neurologi; Psychiatry; psykiatri;

    Abstract : Delivery of drugs to the brain requires passage across the blood-brain barrier (BBB). Both for drugs already on the market and for new drugs under development, it is important to know to what extent a drug enters the CNS. Many drugs used clinically are racemic mixtures, i.e. READ MORE

  2. 7. Quantitative Aspects of Nanodelivery Across the Blood-Brain Barrier : Exemplified with the Opioid Peptide DAMGO

    Author : Annika Lindqvist; Margareta Hammarlund-Udenaes; Markus Fridén; William Elmquist; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : The use of nanocarriers is an intriguing approach in the development of efficacious treatment for brain disorders. The aim of the conducted research was to evaluate and quantify the impact of a liposomal nanocarrier formulation on the brain drug delivery. READ MORE

  3. 8. Diving and the brain

    Author : Anders Rosén; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; biomarkers; brain; central nervous system; decompression sickness; dive research; diving; neuronal damage; saturation diving; tau protein; venous gas embolism; neurofilament light; glial fibrillary acid protein; tau; VGE;

    Abstract : Abstract Introduction There are reports that long-term diving is associated with cognitive impairments. This raises the question if diving itself is harmful to the brain in the absence of decompression sickness or hypoxia. READ MORE

  4. 9. Effects of Mobile Phone Radiation upon the Mammalian Brain

    Author : Henrietta Nittby; Sektion IV; []

    Abstract : Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major cause of death and disability. TBI is frequently followed by cerebral ischemia which is a great contributor to secondary brain damage. The main causes of cerebral ischemia are pathophysiological changes in cerebral blood flow and metabolism. READ MORE
