Nanomedicine for Targeting Brain Tumors

About this Research Topic

Glioblastoma is one of the deadliest and least treatable forms of cancer, for which no known preventive measures could be undertaken. The standard of care, involving the combination of surgery and chemoradiotherapy, has had a minor effect on the patient survival except in rare cases. This calls for an effort to engage in the discovery of fundamentally new agents and approaches to treating this disease.

The goal of this Research Topic is to gather an expert opinion and exemplary research studies that describe the advent of new nanomedical technologies for improving the treatment of glioblastomas and other brain tumors through specific targeting and passage of the blood-brain barrier.

Topics of interest include technologies for the targeting of tumors residing in the brain parenchyma, methods involving the transient permeation of the blood-brain barrier assisting the passage of the nanoparticles into the brain tissues, magnetically guided therapies, receptor-targeting transcytotic drug delivery vehicles for crossing the blood-brain barrier, and others.
Research articles, reviews, and shorter commentaries on any aspect of the progress in these new technologies are welcome.


Keywords: Glioblastoma, Nanoparticles, Drug Delivery, Imaging, Theranostics


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
