IMPORTANT POINTS & DISCOVERIES
- Development of a unique pregnant rabbit model of maternal inflammation-induced cerebral palsy in the fetus characterized by neurobehavioral assessment, PET/MRI imaging, and tissue/mRNA analysis
- Development of dendrimer-based capture assays for the detection of cytokine levels with a 20-fold improvement in sensitivity
- Polyamidoamine (PAMAM) dendrimers can target targeted cells associated with neuroinflammation, even upon intravenous administration
- Systemic, post-natal administration of dendrimer-based drug delivery nanodevices can attenuate neuroinflammation and improve motor deficits in newborn rabbits kits with cerebral palsy
