  • Abstract:

    AbstractThe blood-brain barrier (BBB) is made up of the endothelial cells of the capillaries in the brain. Apart from its tight junctions it also has efflux transporters like P-glycoprotein that keep many drugs out of the brain, and other uptake transporters that promotes uptake of some drugs into the brain. Knowledge about the role of drug
