EPITARGET
Epilepsy is a devastating condition affecting over 50 million people worldwide. Patients with epilepsy suffer from reoccurring unprovoked seizures. The goal of current treatment practice is to enable patients to live unrestricted lives by controlling the seizures with anti-epileptic drugs – Epilepsy cannot be cured to date. EPITARGET is a EU funded consortium focused on addressing this area of medical need. The central premise and vision is that by using a combinatorial approach to identify appropriate biomarkers that allow the prediction of the disease and by developing effective undefinedanti-epileptogenic therapeutics, patients at risk can be treated before they even have epilepsy. Our role in the project is to explore ways in which novel therapies could be delivered to the brain by overcoming or bypassing the BBB. We utilise supramolecular assemblies of engineered polymers to facilitate transport into the brain.
