FULL STORY

Researchers at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, briefly and reversibly disrupted the blood-brain barrier in laboratory rats and generated protein/DNA complexes that passed through the disrupted barrier. This research, the first step in treating diseases of the central nervous system, was discussed today at the annual meeting of the Pediatric Academic Societies in New Orleans, May 1-5. For interviews during the meeting, contact the press room at (504) 670-8502 or 670-8508.Researchers' Institutional Contact: Bud Perron (212) 843-8068 perro@rubenstein.com
