Abstract [en]

Methods for in vivo assessment of blood-brain barrier (BBB) transport are presented, with their advantages and disadvantages. The methods described are brain uptake index, the i.v. injection technique, in situ brain perfusion, brain efflux index, % injected dose, microdialysis, CSF sampling and positron emission tomography, and the combinatorial mapping of unbound drug partitioning across the BBB. The methods are put into a pharmacokinetic context by delineating the type of readings that they give, be it the rate of transport across the BBB or the extent of transport of total drug (unbound and bound), or of the unbound drug.
