The blood brain barrier’s main goal is to protect the brain from toxic agents. By doing this, it can interrupt or block the delivery of therapeutic drugs to our brain. Many trials have been attempted to try and force the transport of drugs across the BBB, but some of these ways can structurally damage the BBB. The ideal goal would be to find a way to control the transport drugs across the barrier, but not damaging it at the same time. The most ideal approach found for this goal was “nanobiotechnology-based” delivery. A big way that this technique has been used is to aid in the delivery of drugs and biological therapeutics for brain tumors across the blood brain barrier. This transport still has limitations, but the future expectations for the
