Ultrasound to bypass the blood-brain barrier in PD


The blood-brain barrier is notorious for blocking entry of therapeutics, but a phase 1 trial showed potential improvements in patients with early Parkinson's disease who received targeted enzyme replacement therapy facilitated by focused ultrasound to bypass this barrier. Any side effects were minimal and temporary and a phase 2 trial will explore applying this technique to both sides of the brain to hopefully slow the progression of Parkinson's disease, according to co-principal investigator Lorraine Kalia.
