Blood - Brain Barrier (BBB)

The BBB separates plasma from the interstitial space of the central nervous system and is most important to maintain homeostasis in the central nervous system.

It controls the traffic of molecules, including ions and water in and out of the brain and plays an important role in supplying the brain with nutrients and getting rid of waste and toxic products.

Many disorders such as stroke, CNS infections, demyelinative diseases, metabolic disorders, degenerative diseases and malign brain tumors are associates with BBB dysfunctions.
