Cell Systems News — Blood-Brain Barrier
3D modeling of the blood-brain barrier in a microfluidic chip using Cell Systems human primary cells has shed light onto how different types of brain cells can independently affect the brain’s response to neuroinflammation. As a more physiologically relevant model, this BBB-chip can be a new promising tool for understanding the brain.
Transporting therapeutic drugs and agents across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) has always been a challenge for brain disease therapy. This study examines the permeability of 2D graphene nanosheets through the BBB using a popular in vitro BBB monolayer model constructed with Cell Systems primary human brain microvascular endothelial cells or hBMECs (Cat# ACBRI 376).
