Studies of the blood-brain barrier: Preliminary findings and discussion

Authors

  • Allan H. Frey


Abstract

The tasks I have been assigned as a discussant are, first, to discuss results of my current experimentation that extends my earlier blood-brain barrier work as it bears upon the work presented by the panelists. Second, I am to comment on the work presented by the various panelists.

I will briefly sketch three of my current experiments. One concerns the effect of microwave energy on the blood-vitreous barrier of the eye. Another is concerned with the possibility of passage of dye through the placental barrier to the fetus. The third is concerned with the possibility of low-intensity microwave energy enhancing the passage of cancer chemotherapeutic substances through the blood-brain barrier.
