Realising The Potential of Nanomedicine – Formulation & Delivery Approaches

Insight article:  Nanomedicine and nanotechnology delivery systems are relatively new but have shown promising results and potential for innovative new drugs.  A major breakthrough has been the development of peptide self-assemblies (also known as NanoLigand Carriers) for the delivery of nucleic acid medicines.

Beyond the Barrier

“Over the years, complex design (with poor pharmaceutical attributes), poor target recognition, low frequency of crossing the BBB, and poor ability to subsequently target parenchymal cells (for example, neurons and microglia cells) are among some of the major challenges for achieving drug delivery to the brain,” says Moein Moghimi, Professor of Pharmaceutics and Nanomedicine at Newcastle University.

Unlocking the Blood-Brain-Barrier: A new simple and innovative way of delivering therapeutics to the brain

Professor Moein Moghimi, who led the research team, said, "Crossing the blood-brain-barrier has been a major impediment to effectively addressing central nervous system diseases, including brain tumors, and many neurological diseases like Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and Huntington's. This breakthrough, based on more than 10 years of research, has significant implications for crossing the blood-brain-barrier and other biological barriers that have created challenges for drug delivery."

Unlocking the Blood-Brain-Barrier: A new simple and innovative way of delivering therapeutics to brain

Professor Moghimi and his team engineered small particles using a peptide that can behave like a carrier (like viruses) to the brain and can be packed with drugs for intravenous injection. This allows for minimally invasive and combination drug delivery to the brain.

Unlocking the Blood-Brain-Barrier: A new simple and innovative way of delivering therapeutics to brain

Scientists have traditionally faced the problem that blood capillaries in the brain are not permeable to many drugs. In fact, the majority of drugs are excluded from the brain by a protective barrier, called the blood-brain-barrier (BBB), and current treatment options are risky and challenging.

Phage mimetic self-assemblies deliver nucleic acids to the brain

The BBB accounts for the failure of a large number of promising neurotherapeutics, including nucleic acid medicines such as RNA interference (siRNA). In the past decade, we have witnessed vested efforts in finding viable strategies for drug delivery to the brain through minimally invasive routes of administration and without compromising the integrity of the BBB.
