Blood Brain Barrier Permeability
The blood brain barrier (BBB) is a physical barrier formed by the arrangement of endothelial cells and tight junctions that line the capillaries which supply blood to the brain. It is a highly selective barrier that restricts the movement of molecules from the blood across to the brain. The BBB naturally permits the passage of essential metabolites, small hydrophobic (lipid soluble) molecules like oxygen, carbon dioxide, hormones, etc. Acting like a filter, the BBB prevents the entry of infectious agents, toxins and other environmental triggers into the nervous system.
