Localized Delivery of Curcumin Into Brain With Polysorbate 80-modified Cerasomes by Ultrasound-Targeted Microbubble Destruction for Improved Parkinson’s Disease Therapy

“Treatment for Parkinson’s disease (PD) is challenged by the presence of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) that significantly limits the effective drug concentration in a patient’s brain for therapeutic response throughout various stages of PD. Herein, this paper fabricated curcumin-loaded polysorbate 80-modified cerasome (CPC) nanoparticles (NPs) with a mean diameter of ~110 nm for enhancing the localized curcumin delivery into the targeted brain nuclei via effective BBB opening in combination with ultrasound-targeted microbubble destruction (UTMD).”
