The blood-brain barrier (BBB) hinders the accumulation of active compounds in the central nervous system, thus decreasing their therapeutic effectiveness. To overcome this obstacle, interesting supramolecular nanodevices are herein considered. These systems have many advantages over the conventional formulations, such as having structures made up of biocompatible and biodegradable materials, the possibility of bypassing the BBB in a non-invasive manner (without structural modifications) and the… CONTINUE READING
