Slipping past the blood brain barrier: Research shows potential treatment for brain cancer

a way to get drugs into the brain to treat cancer.

"There are times when there's a big difference between an animal model and the human condition. In terms of getting drugs across the blood brain barrier to fight cancer, there's not such a big difference. There's pretty much the same rules in any blood brain barrier - be it in a mouse or human."

Laura Jaeger, the lead author of the study and a doctoral student in the department of pharmacological and physiological science at Saint Louis University, calls the findings "very positive and a good first step."
