Nanotechnology for Parkinson’s treatment: a novel encapsulation approach allows efficient dopamine delivery to the brain
14 September 2021

Read the latest Nanopinion guest column from Dr. Daniel Ruiz-Molina about a novel nanotechnological encapsulation approach to deliver dopamine to the brain. The delivery could be used to treat Parkinson’s disease, which is caused by a deficit of dopamine due to the death of the neurons responsible for its production.

Are substances in nanoforms more dangerous than they are in their normal size? Some are and some are not. Just like any other chemical substance, nanomaterials have to be assessed separately.
