Neurodegenerative and infectious disorders related to host genetics, aging, and environment are rapidly increasing. Drugs, vaccines, or regenerative proteins offer "real" possibilities for positively affecting disease outcomes but are limited by access across the blood-brain barrier. New developments in nanomedicine and cell based drug delivery are becoming available. These discoveries can lead to improved neurological disease outcomes. Such obstacles include the toxicities inherent in the delivery systems de novo such as immuno- and neurological dysfunctions and perturbations of blood-brain barrier function. This debate by leading experts in the field highlights the promise and perils of CNS drug delivery. Click on Supplemental HTML to watch the streaming video.
