Blood brain barrier refers to a set of special tight junctions formed around the microvasculature of the brain to gain the optimal neural functioning. The primary function of blood brain barrier is to protect the brain from harmful toxins that are potentially present in the blood stream and allows the passage of lipid soluble, oxygen and carbon dioxide to perform the normal cellular function of brain. In a way to protect brain from noxious agents the blood brain barrier also significantly hinders the delivery of therapeutics to brain.
This makes treatment of brain disorders and infections difficult due to specialized uptake of the drugs by the blood brain barrier. Recent advancement allow the drugs to be delivered directly to the cerebro-spinal fluids but are still less effective to breach the brain tissue because of tortuous nature of interstitial spaces of brain.
