Inflammatory events at blood-brain barrier in neuroinflammatory and neurodegenerative disorders: Implications for clinical disease Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Proper function of the neurovasculature is required for optimal brain function and preventing neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration. Within this review, we discuss alterations of the function of the blood–brain barrier in neurologic disorders such as multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and Alzheimer’s disease and address potential underlying mechanisms.
